My name is Kim Walton and I am a technical recruiter for Keen Consulting in
Toronto. After exhausting my normal avenues of recruiting, I came across
your website of Toronto Perl Mongers.


The client I am working with is in need of 2-3 PERL developers and a
Technical Lead. I was hoping that there might be professionals within your
group either looking for work, or perhaps know of others who are. 

This industry is all about networking - so if you know anyone who is looking
for work please don't hesitate to let me know. We offer a referral bonus
here at Keen Consulting, so please feel free to pass on any names of
colleagues you think would be interested.


The client I am working with is an ecommerce solutions company based in
downtown Toronto. These are permanent positions with a salary range of
$50-60k for Junior Developers and $70-80k (or above this due to scarcity in
the market) for Senior Developers and Leads. I will attach the job
description below for your convenience. Please let me know if you are
