Job title: Perl Catalyst Developer
Company name: Connect Distribution
Location: Birmingham, UK
Pay rate: Competative
Terms of employment: Salaried employee
Hours: Full time
As a backfill for a recent promotion, we have an opportunity for a capable
developer to join our in-house team of open source developers.
developed scores of eCommerce websites generating tens of millions of
pounds in income, and are currently in the process of re-developing the
data structure and publishing tools that these sites are based on, as well
as integrating them to a MS Dynamics AX ERP system and are about to
re-build the front ends to become responsive and device agnostic.
ideally we are looking for someone with a Perl / Catalyst background,
really what we want is a good developer. We have previously successfully
cross-trained developers with skills in languages such as PHP, Ruby,
too, so the successful candidateâs actual language experience is less
important that the fact that they can genuinely write good code.
sites are hosted in Linux, so exposure to this, or other Unix platforms,
would be useful, as would familiarity with version control systems such as
Subversion, Git, or Mercurial, etc
The company is a family run business
that has been trading for over 45 years. It currently employs c.600 staff
and has an annual turnover of c.Â£100m.
The core technology these sites are based on is Perl, using the catalyst
framework, although we are increasing using AngularJS, and other
technologies used include MySQL, Couchbase, RabbitMQ, Redis, Solr,
ElasticSearch, and Puppet, to name a few.
