Job title:
The Future is Now! London Based Perl Telecommute Role

Company name: Perl Jobs by Perl Careers

Pay rate: £50,000–£55,000 GBP /year

Terms of employment: Salaried employee

To boldly go where no one has gone before

Some kids grew up playing video
games. Others spent their time taking apart the family DVD player to see
how it worked and incurring the wrath of their parents. If you were one of
those curious little tykes with a yen to know how things work then set your
phasers to stun, because we have the role for you!

Our client is a leading
online tech publication with more than 40 millions readers worldwide. Their
articles cover electronics, hardware, software, AI, cloud services,
culture, and—you guessed it—outer space. They’re in the know about planets,
photon torpedoes, and what the Borg are up to right now.

Operating out of
a London office that offers the opportunity to work remotely, this is a
small, self-motivated team. Critical to your success is the ability to work
independently. No expendable red shirts here; everyone is important to the
team and has to pull their weight on the expedition—er, project. Your role
is a combination of SysAdmin-meets-DevOps. You’ll be working with their
Debian-based Linux systems, their Perl, Bash, and Linux tooling. Key to
your mission will be improving the automation of their deployment systems
to enable tech and ad-ops teams to go live at lightspeed.

Other facets of
your role will include tweaking server build scripts, documentation and
application of backup and restore procedures, monitoring servers and their
logs, keeping systems current, and making sure the warp core doesn’t melt
down. They’re looking for a creative crew member who enjoys writing their
own tools using Perl, Bash, HTML, CSS, and JS.

The shuttle’s leaving soon,
so if you want to beam aboard, now’s the time to send us your CV and tell
us why you should be the next crew member on the USS Fantastic Job!

Desired skills:

    Very strong Linux sysadmin skills, esp Debian
    Not at all
afraid of Perl


    MySQL/MariaDB (N-tier replication) and
    Single-node and multi-node Redis.
    Containerisation &
    Debian package management.
    Testing & automation
(CI/CD/Git hooks) and monitoring (e.g. Grafana, Munin).
    Email servers
and their configuration (e.g. SPF, Exim).
    Working knowledge of DNS,
HTTP, TLS, web security.

Telecommuting Details:

Open to residents of
United Kingdom, Switzerland, and the European Economic Area
