Hi Everyone,

My employer Booking.com is still looking for Senior Perl developers. In 
Amsterdam we already have an exceptionally strong team including people 
like Abigail, Philippe "BooK" Bruhat, Elizabeth Mattijsen and Rafael 
Garcia-Suarez, but also people who aren't that well-known in the Perl 
community but are no less skilled (or even more).

We also have a development team in Cambridge, but no Perl developers 
there yet. Therefore we want to recruit Perl developers for the 
Cambridge office, who can help build up a team of Perl developers over 
there, working with the existing team of Java developers.

Are you interested? Read the full job description below and let us know! 
You can email me directly for more information or contact Katherine 
Springthorpe (ukjobs at booking.com) to apply.
