Scrapy & JS scraping dev

OUR COMPANY

Evo is a startup at the forefront of the global retail technology revolution.

We develop artificial intelligence with granular, accurate data-driven customer choice models that help our clients make better automated decisions.

Our use cases include product pricing, promotion, forecast and replenishment. We start with academic research, then build data science software, and finally dedicate human support to our clients; targeting a sustainable client value creation, with a ‘can-do’/’whatever it takes’ mindset: a caring meritocracy.

We serve clients all over the world in multiple languages, for example in the retail and fashion sectors, from our London (UK) and Turin (ITA) offices with 30+ people.

THE ROLE

Our " Scrapy & JS scraping dev", as part of the IT team, will write software for the extraction of web data, including code development, production and implementation, ensuring high quality idea generation, a rapid turnaround time on iterations and feedback, and awareness of best practices to deliver rapid results which can be sustained over time.

We use Scrapy/Python for part of the tasks, and Casper/PhantomJS for the rest.

Your initial task will be to set up a scraper for one TEST website, then we are open to partner on multiple concurrent assignments; specific requirements for our broader scraping needs, beyond the first trial website:

- Websites potentially requiring storage of cookies and session information

- Systematic capture of pricing, product information, and screenshots

- Distributed parallel scraping, with proxy rotation and task monitoring

Deliverables: plug-and-play software code to be used in our production environment.

We are an ambitious hard-working team, offering unparalleled opportunities: looking for a great fit with passionate people. Our remote contractors are vital to our team success and we expect that they align to our values, practices with all the benefits and responsibilities that this implies.
