Senior Perl Developer - New Zealand - Wellington

We are looking for an experienced Perl Developer to join our Wellington office; a problem solver who is passionate about open source and can think innovatively and creatively.

You will be joining an established team to play a key role in the ongoing development of a critical system that plays an important role in New Zealand. It is no exaggeration to say that your work will make a significant contribution!

Top-notch communication skills are key, as you will be meeting the client face-to-face on a regular basis. A commitment to collaborative problem solving, sophisticated design and quality product is extremely important.

You will need to have very good programming skills in Perl, and hopefully some experience with configuration management (with Puppet in particular) and version control (preferably in Git). Experience working with databases would be ideal, particularly Postgres. If you also have some good working knowledge of HTML/CSS/JavaScript this would be helpful as well.

Previous experience with other open source software and practices will be a definite advantage as well so please be sure to note these, as well as any open source contributions you've made.

Being a good employer is really important to us. We pay our staff a fair wage and make sure they have any support they need to grow their skills. We get together every Friday afternoon to relax, share company news from around the world and celebrate the achievements of our staff.

We also offer health insurance, flexible working hours, plenty of training opportunities, and a great central location.

If this sounds like you please send your CV and cover letter to [email protected]. Please also include links to any public work you're happy to showcase.
