Posted: May 9, 2020
Company name: Plus Three
Location: Miami, Florida, United States
Country: United States
Pay rate: Fixed Contract
Poster represents: an employer
Terms of employment: Independent contractor (project-based)

Description: We are working on a migration from our data center to AWS. We are pretty far along in the process and need someone that can help finish up to the project. Potential for long-term engagement, new development, ongoing support.
Desired skills: Required skills:

- General web related skills; Knowledge of how the http request/response processes work, back-end app development concepts, etc.
- Intermediate or better proficiency in a scripting language (Perl, Python, Ruby, Javascript... most any will do so long as you can demonstrate honest proficiency)
- Basic SQL knowledge (MySQL preferred); Basic query syntax, ability to interact with a DB programatically.
- Know or be willing to learn Perl and javascript at the least - or any tech we adopt as we go
- You'll need to be flexible and adaptable and pick new things up relatively easily, and enjoy doing so!
- Basic understanding of OO principles, especially inheritance/subclassing, and abillity to write OO code.
- Proficiency working and developing in and for Linux (CentOS), and basic use of relevant tools (ssh, vim, source control with svn and/or git)
- Ability to set up a functional VM (virtualbox) running CentOS; you'll need it for your local development environment
- Self-discipline and motivation to work in a virtual office and get the job done. We don't micromanage, but results will be expected.
- You will be expected to be available (and online via IRC) during normal business hours (EST), even if your actual work is done at 2am.

Desired skills:

- Perl fluency, particularly Class::DBI and/or DBIx:Class (bonus for migrating from the former to the latter), CGI::Application, HTML::Template, mod_perl/2 (migration from v1 to 2 another big plus)
- unit tests - Perl and/or javascript, phantomjs or other "headless" front-end testing solutions are a bonus
- You habitually feel compelled to write useful little tools, shell scripts, things that automate tedius, error prone, or generally annoying tasks
- Strong Javascript, Highcharts is a big plus, jQuery, prototype (bonus points for migrating to the former from the latter), the usual stuff
- Reading/reverse engineering complex existing code
- Easy going with a sense of humor is a must!
