Challenge

The client was a research service provider to a US based hedge-fund focusing on TMT investments. The hedge-fund commissioned the service provider to conduct a market survey regarding a very niche sector within TMT. The client reached out for support over extracting the online feedbacks from the professional social network Glassdoor.

Solution

A tailored data collection scraper was developed for scrapping all the relevant feedbacks from the required companies over the Glassdoor platform. The project wasn’t without its challenges due to strong anti-scraping blocking from the platform side. The data was successfully delivered in full and within the designated time window.

Impact

The provided structured feedback data from the Glassdoor platform allowed the client to submit a complete market overview regarding the niche TMT sector to the hedge-fund. The client returned for future commissioned projects.
