Description: We're an outsourced software development company with a difference. There's no sitting on the bench here, we work in dedicated teams for some great clients. We are looking for someone who has experience of server-side application development in Perl, or another C-like language

We’re currently 100 people, but because we work in small teams we have more of a start-up feel. The culture is relaxed with flexible working, free freshly ground coffee & fruit. We’re agile and we work in 1 or 2 week sprints. We have a flat structure and we work in self organising teams – there’s no hierarchy here and that’s the way we like it!

People are our number one priority and everything we do is to ensure that our teams are happy. We work and live in an amazing location which we make the most of whenever we can. A healthy work life balance is essential and we insist that people take breaks, this is not somewhere that you need to work extra hours in order to be noticed. Your code and your attitude are what will get you recognised here.

You’ll be part of a small team working together on a shared codebase. That codebase is responsible for: The authentication of users for our customer, partner and internal web portals, the authoritative source of customer records and their web portal user accounts, routing web traffic to appropriate back-end systems to present a seamless user experience

We work with a variety of technologies, which are subject to ongoing change, and integrate with a large number of other internal systems.

We offer great benefits including:

• Enhanced company pension
• Fun monthly team socials (Beach BBQs, Laser Tag, Film screenings, Rugby trips and more)
• End of summer company festival – Headstock
• Headtalks – Monthly internal technical conference
• Fresh fruit
• Fresh ground coffee
• Corporate gym membership rates
• Child care vouchers
• Salary sacrifice bike scheme

The closing date for this role is 30th April 2018. We recruit on a rolling basis and fill our vacancies as soon as we find people who fit our culture and meet the skills requirements. This means that whilst we have a closing date on all of our roles, we may offer the role to someone before the end date, so we recommend that you apply as soon as possible. These positions do require solid commercial, if you do not have this yet but you are interested in us, please register your interest on our careers page.

Also – we are located in Cornwall UK and these roles are not remote. You will need to live in or move to Cornwall and due to timescales, we ideally need people who already have the right to work in the UK or who are already in the UK with a visa which we can takeover if necessary.
