Bluehost Perl Developer Job Description Position Summary The Perl Developer will be part of our billing/payments development team building the next generation billing system. The team has high visibility in the company and is important for our ongoing success. All billing systems within the company will eventually be migrated to this system. You will be one of the core developers who will help deliver on the product vision.
What We’re Looking For n Talented Perl programmer – You have been around the block a few times and are comfortable using Perl to make web apps work.
n Object Oriented Perl – You think Perl is more than "just a scripting language" and know how to make it do things others can’t. Plus you understand how Perl’s object orientation differs from other languages such as C# and Java. That said, we are open to talking to you even if you don’t have Perl in your background, but have deep experience with object oriented development.
n SQL Database Expertise – Our billing system is built on PostgreSQL. A SQL background is extremely valuable to the success of this project.
n Web Experience – You are familiar with how the web works, and can hit the ground running writing web applications and tools.
n Open source world – You have lived in open source code for most or a good part of your career and are not a fan of the commercial software world. For example, you have no problem using Vim or Emacs as your “IDE” for Perl.
n Team Player – You work well as part of a team, and are willing to take direction, but can be trusted to get things done on your own.
n Hard Working – Once you get your bearings, you are heads-down and tenacious in completing assigned projects
Qualifications n At least 5 years experience as an object oriented developer, ideally in Perl
n Must be competent developing Web applications and system utilities
n Must be competent with SQL
n Must be knowledgeable with Linux and basic system administration
n Ability to stay on task, solve problems, and accomplish tasks in a timely manner
n Able to work well with other team members
n Must be qualified to work in the United States
