We are seeking someone who can develop a multi-threaded scraper (with use of proxy) to scrape data from Amazon.
Specifically, the data required to be scraped is the stock level of products.
This is done by adding the item to cart and selecting 999 stock level - Amazon will return an error if stock is less than 999, by saying what the current stock level is.
This then needs to be exported to a database that stores item information, price, BSR, ASIN number and stock level, among other things.
The scraper will need to export a very large amount of data at any one time.
The data will then need to be exported and placed into a database that measures change in stock level over 2 consecutive days repeatedly. This is used to estimate sales volume per day.
Once this per day sales figure is estimated, it should be correlated to the BSR (best seller ranking). Obviously not every item will have data so by taking a spread of data we will need to have a backend PHP script to estimate rank position vs. monthly sales volume.
We will then use this data in web extension to estimate monthly sales of an item by best seller ranking.
A simple script will be required that responds to a request with a token for the sales volume for a particular best seller rank in a particular category.
Further documents can explain the method.
Please only apply if you have experience with multi-threaded proxied scraping, Amazon experience preferred.
