Software Engineer - Perl, PHP, Ruby, Python - Central Kent

Have you started your career in Software Development and looking for the next step?

Do you feel that the level of support and training is lacking in your current company?

Want to work for a company that genuinely cares?

If yes, then this could be the role for you!

A global, growing payment technology business are seeking a Software Engineer to join their small technology team in their Kent office, to support the ongoing development and rapid growth of their platform.


They have a large application and are passionate about developing new talent and helping them progress and grow. You will get to work on and solve real problems and you will quickly progress from mid to senior level.

The staff turnover is very low as this is a supportive and collaborative environment, and you will be able to learn and be mentored by the Senior members of the team.

As a Software Engineer you will be prototyping product features based on business requirements; maintaining and refactoring product features; develop, test, debug and maintain the backend code, SQL queries and frontend HTML & JavaScript; develop, update and maintain technical documentation; and provide internal support for system-related questions and issues.

Their backend code is written in Perl, however programming experience in this language is not required - you just need strong development and programming logic skills alongside 18-24 months commercial software development experience in either Perl, Ruby on Rails, PHP, Python or VB.net programming languages.

Full training in Perl will be provided. If you haven't considered a specialisation in Perl before, why not?

As there aren't many Perl Devs as there are Java or .NET Devs for example, career opportunities are enormous - you will have your pick over available roles, will have employers fighting over you, and therefore will have the ability to command a high salary very quickly. On top of that there is a thriving Perl open source community with regular meetups and events.

The company are passionate about change and are always looking for Software Engineers that will help them grow. You will be a self-starter who loves learning and are a hard-worker who pays attention to the tiniest of details.

They are a group of like-minded people who believe in the possibility of One World with Zero Barriers. If you like complex challenges and believe success is about more than naked profit and growth, you're probably the right kind of person for the team!
