Is your Python as good as your Perl? Perl/Python role in London

Posted: January 31, 2022
Company name: Perl Jobs by Perl Careers
Location: South West London, UK
Country: United Kingdom
Pay rate: Depending on experience
Poster represents: a recruiting agency
Terms of employment: Salaried employee

Description: In early 2020, remote work sounded great. No commute! Yoga pants as officewear! Now that 2022 has rolled around, the bloom is definitely off that rose. If staring at your same four walls is driving you bonkers, maybe it’s time for something new. Don’t change your address; all you need is a job in a great location to get you out of the house.

Our client is at the pinnacle of the premium native advertising game for corporate, tech, financial services, and lifestyle technology. Their client roster includes names like AOL, Guardian, Reuters, and Time Online, so you know they’re doing something right. They’ve got a stellar location in the heart of London to blast through your at-home blues. Just think — people! Shops! Restaurants - other than the same two you toggle between (yes, we’ve seen your order history).

Ready to get out there? Then read on to see if they’re looking for you.

This role is for a Senior Developer who is equally comfortable with Perl AND Python. If you’re stronger with Perl than Python or vice-versa, you should be willing to brush up on your knowledge until you’re fluent in both. You’ll use server-side code, client-side code, databases, and websites to develop their software platform. Able to work independently or in a team, you’ll be driven by your own will to succeed and not require a lot of handholding.

Let’s all agree that we could spend a little (okay, a lot) less time at home. Some folks need a reason to get out there, and if that’s you, why not take a job that will burst you out of your rut? Send us your CV today and tell us about your Perl/Python chops!
Desired skills: Required

Commercial experience with one of Mojolicious / Catalyst / Dancer
Commercial experience with a front-end JavaScript framework, ideally React, but Angular or Vus.js considered too

Bonus
