I generally seem to have more luck going the other way around, that is
trying to find something interesting to do, with the leeway to do it in
the way I see fit.

After all, Perl isn't the solution to every problem I want to solve, and
I don't think I'd call a job very interesting if it was.

I suppose that the most (technically) interesting job I ever had had no
requirement for any Perl.  Well, not when I started anyway.  Knowing
Perl, or having the desire and ability to learn it, was a fairly high
requirement when I left.
