Role: Web scraping (Scrapy Framework) Junior Python Developer
Commitment: Full-time or flexible/part-time roles available.

Our ideal candidate is either currently at university or recently completed their degree. They have studied and worked with Python and potentially the Scrapy framework.

the urge relies on the quality of the data that we scrape and then enhance to add to our fashion dataset. It is therefore imperative that the spiders that are built are of the highest quality.

Currently we have built ~150 spiders and need to grow this number to ~1,500 as soon as possible.

It is possible that you may have a friend and you wish to both work on the project, then you may apply as group.
We pay between $500-$800 USD per month per person involved in the project (Full-time - 40 hours). Alternatively you may work less hours and be paid pro-rata.

Our head office is in Sydney Australia, however the urge has staff in London, Sydney, and Ukraine with further global ambitions.

- You must have written a web scraper with Python previously (a copy of your most recent spider should be submitted in the application)

We will teach you intricate details about web scraping at scale, using Kubernetes, Helm, Scrapy and many processors / enrichers to take the data and make it highly searchable.

Please submit the following when applying;

- Your CV
- Your availability: Full-time or Part-time (Please list the hours you have available if PT)
- Why you want to work at the urge
- Your expected Salary
- A copy of your most recent Scrapy spider (If you have never written one, we can provide a sample test for you to complete).

Successful applicants will join our team in Slack, partake in daily and weekly hangouts video calls as required. We have targets and incentives for both the role and the company and we like to celebrate with monetary bonuses as well as activities such as drinks or lunches paid for by the company.

Our preference is if you live in Kyiv as you can then meetup with the rest of the team in Kyiv, however this is not a requirement
