Perforce is a rare place to work: lots of fun, and heavy into perl.
Free monthly massage, and an extra day of vacation every month.  Need 
I say more?

We have a heavily virtualized build/test/dev env, so good if you have 
practical vmware experience.

Contact me directly and I will forward your resume.
