Are Perl app developers really that scarce, or does our job posting just suck?
I read the job post, and it doesn't seem too bad. If you want one comment, I did notice that it doesn't seem to offer telecommuting, nor does it mention where the job is located. Or if you do say either of those things, I guess it's easy to miss.
I think there might be plenty of Perl developers out there, but not too many on the lookout for a new gig. If my experience is any guide, any shop that believes Perl is the right tool to use, as opposed to J2EE, .Net, or some other buzzword du jour, is probably a pretty enlightened place to work. I mean, your job actually looks really interesting, but I'm not going to apply for it because I'm really enjoying myself in my current spot. Could this job be better? Sure! Can I imagine better companies to work for? Yup! But the changes wouldn't be huge, and there are so many things to like here, that it's really a crap shoot whether I'd be any more satisfied.
If you don't think this is true - if your experience does not suggest that Perl programers are happy where they are, because where they are is a good place - you should be applying for our job opening (oh, and sfink's, too, I guess). Shouldn't you?
