About the role

Supermall is inventing the future of commerce by creating an entirely new way for people to buy and sell things online.

We would love to meet: systems and scraping engineers with deep experience hacking the internet. If you have experience breaking captchas, web scraping, indexing billions of records, scaling up to handle insane RPS, browser automation, tuning for speed, then we want to talk to you.

Additionally, if you have experience with or have built some of the following, we'd love to speak with you:

  • Headless browsers (Selenium)
  • Python (Numpy/Pandas/visualization libs)
  • Scrapy, BeautifulSoup
  • Async/requests library
  • Anti-captcha methods
  • Proxy management & rotation
  • Data mining/data extraction
  • Reverse engineering API auth & API routes
  • Regular Expressions
  • Having scraped a major site before (for ex. Amazon, Google, Facebook, Youtube, Instagram, Pinterest, etc)
  • NLTK/Spacy knowledge
  • NLP machine learning knowledge (Word2vec, Fasttext, Bert, etc)
  • ML clustering/dimensionality reduction methods

We love that you: make effective independent decisions, implement effective solutions to software development challenges with very little oversight needed, dream big, and deliver further. Your ability to make good trade-offs and exercise good judgment is particularly important, as is attention to detail and optimization. You thrive within the pressure/speed that comes with a high-growth startup environment and take pride in the exquisite art of communication.

As a Supermall employee, your work will be on the cutting edge of commerce and you can expect to take on challenges never attempted before in our industry.

We're backed by some notable investors: Y Combinator, Ronny Conway and A. Capital (Ronny was the first investor in Instagram), SV Angel, and Jaeson Ma (one of the first investors in Musical.ly).

We are looking forward to meeting you!

If your Github or LinkedIn is good we will follow up with a coding test and let you know the outcome straight away.
