Technology: Web Scraping, Lasso
Date: 2008

Opey is a web-scraping agent that scours over 100 company sites looking for career titles, parses those pages, and records the results. When there is a new job posted, it emails a group of recruiters with information about the job. Those recruiters can then contact the company with the new jobs to sell their recruiting services.

Because it’s an automated process that runs every day, the recruiters always know about new postings within 24 hours. Each Opey can graph the results of the company’s job listings over time to give an overview of the health of each company Opey scrapes.
