Dear Mark,

You are the Group Leader of the Purdue Perl Mongers group and I would
like to share some cool news with you;

You probably heard about Booking.com, Planet earth's #1 Accommodation
website in the world from sponsoring the Open Source/Perl Community.

Booking.com is the #1 online hotel reservations company in the world and we
are part of the Priceline Group
Due to the rapid growth of our online business we are now recruiting for
25 Perl Developers to join our office in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Here is some info you can share with your network about Booking and why we
use Perl:

Perl is used for almost everything with a MySQL backend and Git for
development. We get our changes out really fast; it's rare for your code
not to be on our live systems within hours of you pushing it. As a data
driven company we have a clear goal: helping our customers.  Everything
we do is aimed at solving problems for our customers, if it doesn't help
our customers we're not interested in doing it.

We offer a competitive salary, bonus and relocation package including
the opportunity to receive the 30% ruling
and if you are not from the EU we will apply for a work /residence
permit for you and your family (if needed).  Amsterdam is a vibrant and
thriving city offering a multi-cultural environment. You can read a bit
more how Expats rate Amsterdam in terms of lifestyle:
