Job postings beta API: Extract job postings at scale

We’re excited to announce our newest data extraction API, Job Postings API. From now on, you can use Zyte Automatic Extraction API to extract Job Postings data from many job boards and recruitment sites. Without writing any custom data extraction code!

Aside from e-commerce products and news extraction, one of the most demanded web data types is job postings. Job Postings API enables you to get real-time job postings data, at scale.

Better decisions based on job postings data

If you want to learn more about the activities of fortune 100/500/1000 companies, looking at their job postings could be an essential element of your research. It can indicate what direction the companies are heading and give you outside insights on what technologies they are investing in. Job postings can also be a great addition to your business intelligence (BI) data sources.

By monitoring job postings, you can also get a clear understanding of what direction your competitors, partners or suppliers are moving. Getting access to job postings data can help you determine what markets your competitors are going after.

Job postings data at your fingertips

Our Job Posting data API is ideal for

  • Job boards
  • Recruitment agencies
  • Finding leads
  • Market research
  • Businesses that need job data for better decision making

Some of the data fields you get in your API:

  • Job title
  • Job description
  • Date published

Get structured job data, without coding

Without our automated tool, you would have to write custom code for each job posting page to extract the data. Then, you would also need to maintain them and handle the technical difficulties. Our gamechanger Job Postings API lets you focus on the data and not on extraction.

With the Job Postings API, you can extract data from any job posting page, real-time. Just provide the page URLs; you won’t need to write custom code to extract data.

We are continuously improving the underlying machine learning technology, so you can be assured you get the highest quality job data possible.
