    About us

    Adzuna is a job search engine that lists every job, everywhere. From launch in the UK in 2011, we now have more than 10 million visitors a month and are busy conquering the world from our office in West London. This is a rare and exciting opportunity to join one of the UK’s most dynamic and fastest-growing startups.

    The role

    We’re looking for a Perl developer to help us make job search better. This is a rare and exciting opportunity to be a part of the ongoing development and rapid growth of the Adzuna job search engine in one of the UK’s most dynamic and fastest-growing startups.

    Our infrastructure is built around industry-standard open-source tools and runs on distributed clusters. You will be an important member of our small, experienced team that oversees all aspects of our operations, ranging from powering our international websites, aggregating jobs from thousands of external sources, to crunching job market data to power our statistics and applying machine learning algorithms to enhance job seekers’ experience.

    Our tech team operates within a fast-moving, low-structure environment and at Adzuna you will have the opportunity to work both independently and collaboratively, learning from our senior technical team on a range of projects across our suite of products. As you develop your skills, you will have the opportunity to help shape our technical direction and processes as we grow. Developing an appreciation of the ‘DevOps’ movement is useful as we manage and monitor the systems ourselves. You will also need to build an understanding of the importance of building structured code that is fast, scalable, testable, reliable and robust.

    The types of projects you will work on will include new search features, relevancy and matching algorithms, APIs and ‘big data’ analysis, reporting tools and features to enhance the job search experience on Adzuna and to accommodate the requirements of a wide partner network. In this role you will use commonly used dev and communication tools such as jira, bitbucket and slack to facilitate the development process.

    We offer a fun and supportive working environment, with an emphasis on team-working, mentoring and training. Adzuna is an exciting high-growth business where you can make a huge difference, with a market competitive package including stock options.

    We are open to someone either working in a partially remote role with 3 days per week in our great West London location where you can take advantage of our jam-packed social calendar or working fully remotely within a 2 hour time difference of London.

    In this role you will:

    • Partner with other developers and data scientists to improve existing systems and develop new functionality and tools
    • Analyse business and technical requirements and develop solutions, taking into account various aspects, such as performance, scalability, ease of maintenance and cost.
    • Help refactor existing processes and workflows to improve efficiency
    • Participate in R&D of new technology trends and tools

    Requirements

    We don't like to put people in boxes, but you're likely to be able to demonstrate much of the below:

    • 3+ years with high-volume/high-traffic applications/sites
    • Good knowledge of Object-Oriented Perl, preferably including Moose
    • SQL (ideally MySQL) and DBIx::Class
    • Experience with unit and functional testing (Test::More etc.)
    • Experience with Unix/Linux
    • Git
    • Solid understanding of application data flow and lifecycles
    • Strong attention to detail
    • Comfortable working within a distributed and remote team

    Useful extra skills / experience

    We would also be really interested in some of the following skills:

    • Solr, Lucene, ElasticSearch or other search engine
    • Templating frameworks (ideally Template Toolkit)
    • Classified ads / vertical search websites
    • Varnish, nginx, PSGI/Plack, Apache httpd, FastCGI
    • Web-crawling technology
    • Cloud infrastructure and tools (AWS preferred)
    • Chef (pref), Puppet or an equivalent
    • Gearman or other distributed queueing/messaging frameworks
    • Unicode and internationalisation
    • Machine learning / neural nets
    • Python
    • Node.js

    Benefits

    • Reward: We offer a competitive financial package which includes competitive salary, stock options (we are all owners!) and a contributory pension scheme.
    • Wellbeing: Amongst other things, we offer healthcare through Babylon Health; enhanced maternity and paternity leave; 25 days paid holiday per year plus 8 bank holidays; and a full programme of wellbeing activities and events.
    • Hybrid working: We are a fully hybrid company - half our workforce are remote. With employees located in different time zones, we embrace asynchronous work and ensure that everything we do reflects the hybrid nature of our workforce so that everyone feels included. We also have a travel programme to help facilitate teamwork across our global teams.
    • Flexible working: For those working out of one of our offices (non-remote), we have a flexible working policy which means any full time employee can work from home 2-3 days per week - you can choose your office days. You can also request to work additional days from home.
    • Diversity & inclusion: We are committed to hiring a diverse workforce and creating an environment where everyone feels included and welcome. Our D&I committee helps deliver a programme of activities and actions to support this important area of focus.
    • Training: Learning and development is an important pillar of our culture and there are plenty of opportunities to learn, develop and grow whether through our Adzuna Academy training programme, attending conferences, team training budgets, individual development plans and coaching from experienced and supportive peers and managers.
    • Fun stuff: We have a packed social calendar, twice annual global team get-togethers and an enviable culture thanks to the amazing and smart people who make Adzuna a great place to work. Lots of this is done virtually to ensure that everyone is included.
