(Reposting this here. Apologies for the previous post to the primary
London.pm list)

Our CEO wrote an ad at http://jobs.perl.org/job/5075
I thought I'd write an advert here that gives a more complete idea of
what we're looking for and why.

Ymogen is based in Hoxton, about 10 mins walk from Old Street tube.
We do branded sites around communities, involving geocoding and user
collaboration, with strong mobile interactivity.
We're a Perl/Catalyst/PostgreSQL/Linux shop.
There are currently two perl devs here, and a contractor working on
HTML/CSS. (But if you know a good permie for that too, let us know)

We're looking to hire a Perl developer to work on the front-end/UI.
You'll need to be familiar with Template Toolkit and Catalyst, and have
at least a basic understanding of DBIx::Class. As it is a front-end
devel role, you'll also need to know a reasonable level of javascript,
and it would be helpful, but not neccessary, to have experience with the
Dojo toolkit.
You will need to have a good understanding of using CSS and XHTML. (The
final aesthetics will be adjusted by a dedicated CSS/XHTML person, but
it would be nice if you have some knowledge of good UI design)

Your primary remit is working on the UI, but you'll also find yourself
working on the rest of the system. It's a decent codebase, as I
initiated a complete re-write in April this year, along with new
systems, so it is reasonably sane.

We use subversion for source control, and Trac for issue tracking and
documentation. Some knowledge of svn would be handy, but as long as you
have knowledge of some equivelent source-control system, you'll pick it
up fine.

We use Linux systems, so you will need to have some knowledge of Linux,
or at least some modern unix variant.

List price is "From 34k" currently. If you think you're absolutely
fantastic and worth so much more than that, feel free to try and
convince us.

CVs to toby(at)ymogen.net, but please write some prose about yourself in
the email too, as I find I get more out of that than the CV itself.
