This job is for qualified freelancers only. Please be prepared to show python/scrapy examples prior to selection.
We are a data services company and are looking to develop our python/scrapy strategy. We are looking for an experienced freelancer to build four scrapy scripts, which will pull down key elements from 4 news pages. The elements are straightforward like, href, article title, author, date, etc.... The articles/elements will be inserted into a PostgreSQL directly from the scrapy script.
The PostgreSQL database connection will need to be flexible and in a config file outside the scrapers so we can quickly implement. Also, the completed product is expected to have the scripts, all PostgreSQL table schemas and relevant documentation.
If this is something that interests you and you have the relevant experience, please hit us back. We are looking to get this job done quickly (within one week) and apologize if that timing doesn't work for everyone.
