Python Developer Needed to Scrape Data from a Website

We are looking for an experienced Python developer for web scraping.

The development environment is CentOS / Linux and the database is PostgreSQL.

The job entails the following:

Scraping data from website; inserting data into PostgreSQL database; writing an updating script that grabs periodic updates from the source; writing an export tool to export data from the database to a CSV file; testing, documenting, and deploying the solution to production. You'll use Sphinx to generate documentation and use our internal Git server for version control.

The code should perform three main functions: 1) fetch entire data history and populate PostgreSQL database with entire history data and any relevant metadata; 2) perform ongoing updates to the database as new data are released by the source; 3) exporting data from PostgreSQL database to an CSV file in the desired format. We will QA the CSV file using our in-house tools to verify data have been gathered correctly.

The ideal candidate will have:

Expert-level experience with Python

Expert level experience with SQL databases

Which types of data have you scraped in the past?

How many years of experience do you have with webscraping?
