Back-end web development, tackle challenging problems on tight deadlines, know cloud technologies.
We're creating a structured datastore for each e-commerce item (lowest price, promotions, availability) in a time-series format. Currently monitoring 100,000 SKUs but need to scale this immediately (both the data storage and the scraping technology). We need to do it in a way that stores can't block us (we have some ideas and would love to hear what you would do).
Pricing and availability constantly change and we want to be able to predict changes based on historical data. World's second largest grocery retailer is our investor and they're eager to use our tech on their enormous pricing datasets!
