📝 Description

About Zyte: Founded in 2010, Zyte is a fast growing and diverse technology business turning web content into useful data with a cloud-based web crawling platform, off-the-shelf datasets, and turn-key web scraping services. We’re a globally distributed team of over 190 Zytans working from over 30 countries who are passionate about scraping, web crawling, and data science.

**About the Job: ** We have established products that already have product-market fit where you’ll help to grow the business and stay up to date with market demands. At the same time, you’ll be working to iterate quickly on testing new opportunities to help determine which are worth continued investment. We’re a data driven team that defines success by business result rather than completion of a task. Finally, you’ll excel in this role as an independent thinker that can always find a way to move projects forward, even if you might be the only team member online at that time.

About the team: The Platform team consists of several frontend and backend developers that work together designing, building and maintaining our customer facing application and tools to make the world a better place for web crawler developers. We’re a team that values collaboration and helping each other. We meet consistently to discuss problems and brainstorm solutions. We maintain quality through collaborative development and code-review, and everybody’s ideas about development and architecture are welcome. We have an open forum where everyone can express themselves. We also value trust. We are trusted as developers and we take responsibility and ownership for the work we do. We have the flexibility to organise our work and the freedom to choose the tools we like most.
