Attention Python screen-scraping experts! We're looking to hire another full-time developer at EveryBlock. Our site, which just launched a few weeks ago, compiles a wealth of granular geographic data and publishes it on a block-by-block basis. We offer a distinct Web page (plus an RSS feed and e-mail alerts) for every city block in Chicago, New York and San Francisco. We're expanding to more cities and more data sources. And we have a ton of fun features and projects up our sleeves.
This position involves contributions to all of our site's technology and data, with a concentration on screen-scraping public data from government Web sites. Some specifics we're looking for are:
- Mastery of screen-scraping
- Experience programming in Python
- Experience with geographic data
Experience with Django is a nice-to-have.
This is an opportunity to work on an exciting and important project with a talented and experienced Web development team. We're currently only four people, so you'll have a lot of freedom and opportunities to make a difference.
This is a full-time, salaried position, on-location in our modest downtown Chicago office. We're a startup, funded by a grant, trying to make the world a better place. Please contact me if you're interested or have any questions. Tell me about the gnarliest site you've ever scraped.
