Web API Creation - Ongoing


Job Description

tubes.io is a fast growing scraping as a service platform that is designed to make it easy to create an API for any website. We need talented javascript and/or coffeescript developers (preferably with experience in writing web scrapers) to write custom scrapers for our clients on an ongoing basis.

Scripts are written in javascript or coffeescript and are run via managed node.js or PhantomJS instances on our platform. Each script is exposed as it's own RESTful API endpoint which can be called and run in real time.

If you'd like an opportunity to work with some exciting tech then please apply along with an example script that does the following:

Extract all fields you believe are relevant from the following URL:

URL: http://www.homedepot.com/p/2-in-x-4-in-x-92-5-8-in-KD-White-Wood-Stud-569062/202093349#.Uehd92Q-K_Q

Preferrably use JavaScript or CoffeeScript and make use of the tubesio api. See examples here: http://tubes.io/docs/examples/

Prices on site are set by zip code so extra credit for allowing input of zip code to retrieve different prices.

Output should be JSON.
