Founders Shane Evans and Pablo Hoffman meet when organizations were clamouring for web data to power their business. With no credible solutions around Shane and Pablo build their own data extraction software.
The initial release candidate of Scrapy goes public, becoming the first dedicated open source Python web crawling and scraping framework.
Scrapinghub is founded. Going beyond simple spider development, the company offers a holistic, scalable data extraction solution with a community of web scraping experts.
Many of our customers want to manage their own spiders. We release Scrapy Cloud, our ground-breaking service for hosting and managing web scraping spiders in the cloud.
Traditional proxy services aren’t giving customers sufficient resilience to extract data at scale. Enter Crawlera, our super-scalable solution that automates proxy management, rotating proxies to beat bans and boost success rates.
We introduce Portia, a non-developer visual scraping tool that lets customers get data easily from a limited number of websites with no coding needed.
Some customers just want access to data without worrying about spiders, proxies and QA. Our managed services let customers get the data they want, when they need it.
Shane Evans is appointed as Scrapinghub CEO, backed by a new senior leadership team to support ambitious goals for exceeding our customers’ needs.
We launch AutoExtract, our automatic web scraping API. At its core is an AI-enabled engine that extracts data from web pages without the need for time-consuming custom coding.
Scrapinghub officially becomes Zyte. A bold new brand heralds the launch of our self-serve Automatic Extraction service. Powered by AI, it offers super-fast access to News and Product data with no coding needed.
At Zyte we love working with smart, motivated people who share our drive to do more with web data.
We’ve always done things differently, and we embraced the benefits of remote working long before the current pandemic. Today our diverse global team includes more than 180 people working from home - or wherever suits them best - in over 30 countries.
