Here is a direct employment opportunity for a Perl

Requires solid comfort with Perl's basic work-horse
features.  Having built and maintained real
applications supporting real business activities
would be a big plus, but other experience may
also qualify -- see below.

These Perl applications run mostly on Windows
(using ActiveState Perl) but some may move to Linux,
so knowledge of Windows (command line, scheduling,
VBA, etc.) or Linux/Unix (shell scripting, cron, etc.)
are of value here.  At the moment, one task is to
build supervisor processes that will feed work
through existing automated tools, hopefully on a
Linux platform that is waiting for its moment.

Some of these applications emulate human interaction
(screen scraping) with remote systems; others do
data conversion and SQL queries, and interact with
Unix via a telnet session.

Work is in a team environment with application
specialists who have various skills, so there's a
need to learn from and teach others.  Rarely, the
whole team works together on verifying or entering
data.  It's a very lively environment and you get to
see your work in action -- no ivory tower here.
The environment includes a number of hotel
reservations tools, data flowing to web-based
booking services, conversion of data from new
customers, etc.

If you know Perl but lack professional experience,
other qualification that could help in this job are
MS Excel, SQL, shell scripting, and basic networking;
any prior contact with the hospitality industry; or
other office work, dealing with tools and procedures.
Because of the varied nature of the work, the
requirements are rather flexible.

This is a job that I did before transferring into my
current position in Tier III software support.
The people are nice, and the challenges are varied.
The company is good to work for, with full bennies,
several avenues of possible advancement, broad
technology exposure and good mobility.

We are located by the 101 near the Scottsdale Airpark.
Please contact me for further information.
