There's more than one way to do things

The least you can do is write the name of Perl correctly (with lowercase e, r and l). You may have brillant Perl programmers working for you, but have you even let them proofread the job ads?

Many of the "required" skills I see in this ad can be acquired in a matter of days, sometimes hours. For example, someone may not have any experience using CVS, but if they're a programmer, they better be smart enough to learn to use it in less than an hour.

And my pet peeve, "5+ years of experience". As if a number of years says anything. We see, even on this very site, that some people learn the language and the internals of Perl in two years, while others after 5 years still have to find their way to CPAN, and have no idea that @_ contains aliases. That doesn't mean they *can't* understand it, but it does mean they haven't needed to figure it out yet. I have 7 years of Linux experience, but I regularly learn things from people who have used it less than I have. And I myself am sometimes helping out the people who originally taught me how to use Linux. Everyone has their own interests, and a number of years says absolutely nothing about your skills.

This ad really is boring :) If it said just "Perl expert wanted", with a short explanation of what you consider an expert, you'd probably get the same people to reply, but with a lot less effort from your side. And perhaps it would even get more response from the real experts.

"available, responsive, scalable, secure, up-to-date, and feature-rich." - This really sets your company apart from all those companies who advertise with unavailable, unresponsive, unscalable, insecure, out-of-date sites that lack important features. All of these, I think, should be things that any good developer considers obvious and natural.

In general, perhaps you should communicate with your current employees more about job advertisements. You should know how they think, what they would like to read, because the people you're looking for are just like the people you already hired. That is, if you really have the best working for you.
