Multiple Remote Contracting Roles

Posted: January 7, 2022
Company name: All Around the World
Location: Wherever you live
Country: United States
Poster represents: a contracting agency
Terms of employment: Independent contractor (hourly)
Hours: Full time
Onsite: no
Description: With companies re-emerging from the pandemic, we have several projects we need developers for. All work is remote.

* A large client needs strong Perl developers across multiple teams. The work is diverse. Some teams need developers to modernize legacy code while others are writing new code for microservices, routing, and security tools. It’s hard to say exactly what Perl skills are needed as the technologies vary from project to project, but working knowledge of DBI and Mason are often useful.

* Another client needs assistance in migrating away from an unmaintained legacy ORM. Having a strong database and testing background is essential. It’s classic legacy code, so having experience in gradually peeling away layers is important. This work entails writing a Python ORM+OpenAPI microservice, along with updating the Perl code to use this instead of their current ORM.

* Another needs developers with a strong Mojolicious background to take their platform to the next level.

* Finally, we need backend developers for Tau Station (taustation.space/), our in-house project developing a browser-based narrative sci-fi MMORPG. If you’ve ever wanted to work in gaming, this is for you! The backend needs developers with strong modern Perl and DBIx::Class experience. Catalyst experience is also welcome, along with experience in building APIs.

We have two other projects coming on for next year. Requirements similar to the above, but at least one could use developers with a background in developing microservices. A good knowledge of DNS and the hosting is very welcome.

Pay ranges vary per client budget, so please let us know your requirements so we can have an idea where to place you.

Candidates will need to pass a technical test with a code review followed by a structured interview.

Important! Most of the projects will be managed by us, All Around the World (allaroundtheworld.fr, AATW). We're not a recruiting company. We build teams and create a synergy where we support one another. We don’t just dump you on a client without support. You’re part of the us and when you need help, we’re there for you. We hold team meetings for specific projects to ensure that you get the help that you need—and required amount of smiles and friendship. We want you to be part of our family, not just another employee.
Desired skills: Varies per contract, but ...

Strong modern Perl is the main requirement. We understand that this can mean many different technologies, but that's the most important. Database experience is a plus. Moo/se is useful, along with Catalyst, DBIx::Class, Mason, etc. We have many stacks.

Experience in writing tests is very important.
