- Fulltime onsite Senior Perl Developer at Foxtons.

- West London (w4 5be)

- Market rates

Start date: 
- Mid May to Mid June.

You must already be able to work in the UK.

You will be joining a small but dedicated team who are given the freedom
to excel. You must be passionate about pushing the boundaries of
technology and usability. With few formal meetings, your day might cover
working with the sysadmin, helping the designers with JavaScript,
integrating with the CRM webservices or generating google earth kml
files for search results.

Recognized as the leading estate agents website in the UK (if not the
world) we want to maintain this reputation for providing cutting edge
features, without losing simplicity and usability. We also provide
solutions within the company, be this helping production by generating
quark formatted text, or replacing a MS Word based brochure system with
one which generates PDF files from configurations generated through a
web GUI.
You will need to have strong communication skills (occasionally doing
internal presentations) and be someone who works well as part of a team
and enjoys sharing ideas and debating options. You will be expected to
provide input in the design of systems and can even venture an opinion
on front end design issues.

Modules used in our systems:
-	Catalyst, DBIx::Class, Template::Toolkit, TheSwartz, MogileFS,
Memcache, Perlbal, Test::More, PDF::API2 along with hundreds of others.

Core Projects:
-	Website: 400k+ visitors a month, 350k+ images live at any one
time, html/rss/kml/json - google earth,  vodcasts & podcasts
-	Systems: image processing / PDF, mp3 & video generating (already
automated) / package builder / puppet for server management
-	Internal: Brochure builder (Google Gears+Javascript+JSON),
Personalised intranet and document centre.

Of course you will already be used to writing tests and doing code
reviews. You are also likely to have several CPAN modules, and follow
the latest technical developments, for example Moose and virtual
computing even though you may not have direct experience in them yet.

Please drop me a CV if you are interested, or come talk to me at the
next London.pm social
