Although Perl’s popularity has declined in recent years, many languages that power the web today–such as JavaScript, PHP, Python, and Ruby –were influenced by Perl.

As one of the first dynamically typed languages, Perl gave developers the tools to do things they couldn’t do before. For example, developers no longer needed to pre-allocate memory or keep track of which data type a variable stored.

Many developers today still choose Perl instead of ASP.NET because of its libraries, power, and open-source nature. But if you’re looking to hire Perl programmers, it’s probably because you have a legacy Perl app.

Whatever your reason, we’re here to help. At, we help companies large and small–from Fortune 500s to startups–hire remote Perl developers for full-time and part-time positions. Our average time to hire is 13 days.

What is Perl?

Perl is a general-purpose programming language originally developed for text manipulation. Developers use it for various tasks, including system administration, web development, network programming, and GUI development.

Developed in the 1980s, Perl made essential contributions to modern web technology. Today, the language often makes up the P of the popular LAMP stack (Linux/Apache/MySQL/Perl, PHP, or Python). 

Here are some of its key features:

  • Perl is a server-side script. Server-side scripts create the architecture and functionality of a site you don’t see to help the front end run smoothly and dynamically.
  • Perl is free, open-source, and object-oriented.
  • It’s cross-platform and fast. It was built to run on the Unix operating system but can run on over 100 platforms.
