Job description

About the Job:

Scrapinghub is looking for a Product Manager to lead development and launch of an innovative new approach to web scraping. You’ll work with a team to apply automation and machine learning to building web crawlers and, more generally, extracting data from the web. You’ll be working with one of the most advanced and comprehensive web crawling and scraping infrastructures in the world which powers crawls of over 4 billion pages a month.

Your key responsibility will be to bring this new technology & product to market.

Due to business requirements, the successful candidate must be based in Ireland.  Candidates based in the EU and willing to relocate will also be considered. 

Job Responsibilities:

    • In conjunction with the team’s Tech Lead, prioritize the development work for each Sprint and work with the development team to ensure each Sprint’s objectives are met.
    • Use numbers to drive results: measure and report on all initiatives.
    • Review customer (internal and external) metrics and talk directly to customers in order to identify opportunities and compare those opportunities to one another.
    • As the technology develops, identify opportunities to integrate into the rest of the Scrapinghub’s product and business lines

This role is perfect for you if:

    • You have 3 years experience in a similar role.
    • You have a strong background in Data Science. You don’t need to be an engineer but you’ll be working hand in hand with advanced data scientists and you’ll need to speak their language.
    • You’ve brought entirely new products to market before and have a concrete history of getting results
    • You are proficient in both excellent written and spoken English
    • You believe that a project isn’t complete when the software is released; the results are what matter and you fine-tune to hit the intent rather than immediately moving to the next feature.
    • You have a pragmatic, numbers-based approach to prioritization. Ideally a strong background in statistical analysis.
    • You have some knowledge or familiarity with techniques and tools for crawling, extracting and processing data.
