Hi all,

Greetings from the green (wet) lands of Ireland. I'm a US citizen  
living in not-so-sunny Ireland and am interested in moving to  
Australia. The idea of warm weather, sunny beaches and more job  
opportunities is very enticing. :-)

I'm a developer with 12+ years experience developing on the web,  
primarily using perl. (Currently working as a Team Lead / Software  
Engineer.) I love CPAN and all the modern things the perl community  
offers like Moose (and MooseX::*), Catalyst and DBIC. While I don't  
have a problem going through a clueful recruiter, I'd prefer a direct  
contact. So that said, I'm wondering if anyone knows of companies  
looking for new people. Our timeframe for moving is sometime in the  
next 6 months due to school, visa issues, etc. We're thinking of  
living in Adelaide, Melbourne or Brisbane.

I would appreciate any advice you may have to offer.
