Please write a Rake task that scrapes job information from pages on Indeed and outputs the data in JSON. You should be able to pass a search term to it on the command line (e.g. “sales”).
Your script should attempt to extract:
the job title
Some data will be harder to get than other and it is next to impossible to get perfect data when scraping so don’t spend forever on it! What’s more important is making sure you are pleased with your code quality and have something interesting and working. Some extra points which you might choose to consider:
unit / integration tests
modular / extensible code
extracting website / email / phone
scraping from the linked job pages in addition to the main search page
scraping multiple search results pages
using git to show your progress
This job is kinda urgent and it would be great if this can be done by tomorrow.
There will be bonus if you finish this in time.
