Seattle Jobs Scraper System

SeattleJobs.org hired Freelock to implement a system to scrape job listings from their customers' web sites. SeattleJobs.org lists jobs from about 45 member companies. In order for Seattle Jobs to automatically list these jobs, the listings have to be provided in a very specific format.

We developed a system to be able to define different patterns of HTML on each of the clients' web sites to extract the text that represented job listings. Before our project, SeattleJobs.org generally had around 150 individual job listings. With our scraper system complete, there are now over 700 listings. Also, when the format of a web site changes, the system automatically notifies the administrator of a problem!

 

  1. I wanted to touch base and thank you for your team’s quality work on the FHCRC eagle-i connection project.  The system is live and in production – pushing our Drupal content automatically to Harvard’s system.

    We’re very grateful for all the efforts your crew put into this project! Freelock is on my speed dial for future projects!
