- Fulltime onsite Senior Perl Developer at Foxtons.


- West London (w4 5be)


- 40-55k depending on experience

You must already be able to work in the UK.

I am looking to expand the Foxtons web team...

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.

Recognised 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 InDesign 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 (but no HTML/CSS, that¹s for the designers).

Modules used in our systems:

-       Catalyst, DBIx::Class, Template::Toolkit, TheSwartz, MogileFS,
Memcache, Perlbal, Test::More, Plack, Moose, PDF::API2 along with hundreds
of others.

Core Projects:

-       Website: 500k+ 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

-       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 Plack 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 (tomorrow)
