G’day, Perl Mongers of Australia! Do you have a strong background in Perl, but a desire to learn and apply other languages? This client is looking for a polyglot developer, with a focus on Perl but potential to also use (and be cross-trained in) Scala, Ruby, Python and JavaScript. It is a small, flexible team and there may be the opportunity to undertake some DevOps work too if interested.

This Melbourne-based company makes software for data collection and analysis, using modern Perl in a modern way. The right candidate will be familiar with Catalyst, and either have experience with Docker or be keen to learn how to use it. Employees are actively encouraged to make open source contributions.
