United Kingdom - Last active: 1 day 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!

Argentina - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 5

I am a software designer and programmer and Unix admin. I've been programming for 20 years. More than 10 years of working remotely and I think I'm a very good team player. What motivates me most is to learn something new. My main strengths are my academic background (I studied computer science at the UBA university in Argentina) and that I'm a proactive, independent worker. Whenever I can, I find the answers by myself. Currently I'm interested in non UI, back end jobs. I developed websites (not web design) but that's not what I'm looking for right now. Very good knowledge of: Languages: Python, Perl, C, Unix tools. VCS: Git, svn. DB: Postgresql, Mysql. Non rel DBs: Redis. Web frameworks: Django, Catalyst. Bug tracking systems: Jira, Mantis, Bugzilla. I always worked on Unix and all its flavors, so I got a lot of experience on its usage, networking, administration, operating system internals, etc. Different jobs and curiosity by itself made me learn lots of different languages, APIs, frameworks, like Ruby, PHP, Javascript (esp. JQuery), Twitter and FB APIs, Amazon S3, etc.
