We're rebuilding the web scraping stack for Data Engineers.

It all started in a garage

Back in 2017, in Nantes (France), working from an ecommerce warehouse, we benchmarked plenty of scraping solutions. Especially Scrapy, that we unsucessfuly tried to scale, before realizing that 1) it would be unmaintainable and 2) extremely costly.

Coded from scratch

To handle the thousands of simultaneous connections needed, we used Kafka, ZooKeeper, HBase; we developed a custom "Work Balancer" to handle the work-load distribution, and our own crawler, super light and blazing fast.
