Job Description:

We hack on one of the largest websites in the world. We push the limits of what is possible and exceed them. We solve problems of scale that most companies will never have. We hack in teams, doing our own agile development style based on SCRUM. We are driven by data, rather than by hunches. And we do it with a wide array of open source tech including our work horse: Perl. Our large customer base is constantly growing and it is our primary objective to serve them with the best experience we can. This is where you come in.

We need some really sharp people to join us as we continue growing. And you don't even need to know Perl. Any well-seasoned developer will be successful regardless of the target technology. All you need is a capacity and willingness to learn the tech that made us a successful powerhouse (which is easy since we employ an all-star roster of who's who in the Perl community to help you out). And of course, you do need to be able to communicate with the business on their terms to get things done. 

Don't live in the Netherlands? Not a problem. We are looking all over the world for the right people. We will help you relocate and arrange a working visa for you and your family.

Come join our international team of hackers here in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and do something awesome.
