 Good perl programmers needed for an ongoing project to improve and add
new functionality to our hosting platform and billing engine. We have
one of the cleanest code bases out there and constantly have new
projects including new features that we need to add to our entirely perl
back-end codebase.

Depending on your specialist skill sets there are opportunities to work
on front end web applications or infrastructure interaction as well as
squashing those ever present and pesky bugs.

In return we offer excellent renumeration, the chance to hang out in yet
another perl IRC channel, no admin work whatsoever and the opportunity
to be a part of taking our raw but ultra clean back-end code and
perfecting it to such a point of glimmering shininess that it becomes
brighter than the sun (or as close as humanly possible). Telecommute is
possible for the right person with some trips into our central London
office from time to time.

you do much sysad work, we have sysads for that)

Encyclopedic knowledge of PHP developer jokes
