Job title: This Company is No Shop of Horrors

Company name: Perl Jobs by Perl Careers

Location: Canberra ACT, Australia

Pay rate: Depending on experience

Terms of employment: Salaried employee

Hours: Full time

Onsite: yes

Feed me, Seymour!

Remember that 80s cult movie classic Little Shop of
Horrors? Rick Moranis at his nerdy best and Audrey II, the talking,
singing, carnivorous plant. If you saw that movie and found yourself
rooting for the vicious Venus flytrap, then our latest role might be the
perfect fit for you.

This company’s innovative software provides
genotyping information about crops and is used to develop new species of
plants. We’re not saying they’re creating man-eating marigolds … but we’re
also not denying it. Every office has its secrets, right?

DNA-dynamos are looking for someone whose modern Perl skills are
complemented by an interest in genome technology, bioinformatics, and who
won’t tip off the papers if a janitor or two are devoured by daisies. Okay,
we might be kidding about that last part, but they are searching for a
candidate who is familiar with modern tooling and might have experience
with Ansible, AWS, and Linux containers. Toss in a dash of MySQL, Postgres,
and Solr, and they would be eager to meet you.

With a mission that
includes developing cost-efficient genotyping technology and promoting the
development of crops adapted to suit their environment, this is a company
that cares about doing great things, and that level of dedication extends
to their people. They offer a stellar annual bonus, flexible working hours,
and the opportunity to work much of your week from home after the initial 6
months onsite in Canberra to fill you in on the need-to-know details.
You’ll have the cash to keep your garden stocked and you’ll be home to
enjoy it!

If you’re located within Australia and this role sounds too
delicious to pass up, drop us an email with your resume and your favourite
flower. No wrong answers! Except carnations. Carnations are always the
wrong answer.

Desired skills:

    Excellent Modern Perl skills, ideally with Dancer
least some familiarity with JavaScript on the front-end
    An openness to
learning new things – there’s a learning curve regarding the domain
knowledge, but they’ll be happy to teach you

**Nice to have:


MariaDB and Postgres
    Exposure to biological and/or GIS data analysis
 Ansible / AWS / Linux containers
