A position you just might love . . .

Imagine what a hard job Cupid has.
Poor fellow has got to wing all over the world, shooting arrows into folks
just to make a match. Must be exhausting! And if only Cupid knew about what
our client does, maybe he’d change his business plan.

Our client has a
burning passion for helping great flatmates find each other. There’s
someone for everyone, from the guy who leaves his socks in the living room
to the gal who finishes off the last of the toilet paper and doesn’t
replace it. If you want to be part of a team that helps create happier
flatshares, and you’re a Perl software developer who has experience with
other languages and tools like MySQL, C#, and Node.js, then read on!

Whether you’re flying on gilded wings or taking the tube, it’s a quick
commute to vibrant Central Manchester where your new role is located.
You’ll spend your days with humble, positive people who share your
commitment to bringing the flatmate-finding experience into the
twenty-first century. Complimentary fruit is always stocked to keep your
engine running, and if you need something a little stronger, they’ve got a
pretty nifty coffee machine ready to pep you up. Other fun benefits include
a Cycle to Work scheme, season travel loans, gym membership contributions,
and matched pension contributions. You’ll be saving for the future AND
helping people in the present!

A company for the modern age, this is a
family business that has grown by leaps and bounds. 100% owned by the
founders and directors, they’re in love with what they do, and they want to
find others who adore developing new features and fixing bugs in a secure,
well-tested, and performant way.

If you think you could show Cupid a thing
or two about matchmaking (in a totally platonic way, mind you), then let us
know. Send a candygram, a heart-shaped box, or an email—we can’t wait to
hear from you!

Desired skills:
Exposure to Modern Perl is essential; you should be comfortable with using
Perl’s testing tools, not be scared of DBIx::Class, and have come to grips
with at least one of Perl’s excellent MVCs
    Experience designing and
integrating with RESTful APIs
    Exposure to tooling for managing loads
and spikes like Gearman and Memcached would be awesome too
