Perl, Python programmer, web scraping / data extra...

United Kingdom - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 5

I am a freelance software developer providing web scraping services and data crawling using Python and Perl. Over the last 5 years, I have developed a wide range of software solutions to crawl and extract different types of data from a myriad of websites, e.g. real-time data, business listings, sports results data and other related data sources. My experience lies in automated web scraping with well defined specifications including website and output format. Website data delivered often are in standardised CSV or SQL formats and typically involves further post-processing of crawled data according to your requirements. Code is written in Python and Perl following agile and TDD software design techniques to ensure code longevity, reliability and robustness. I also have experience in mathematical languages Matlab, R, as well as databases SQL, MongoDB, Linux administration, and many web API's including Dropbox, Twitter, Twilio and Sendgrid. As well as web scraping, I am capable of completing similar web related projects using Python and Perl, for example, filtering log files, web monitoring, notification systems and backend web apps. Please contact me if you have any available projects!
