Vertical Knowledge, a leader in the Alternative Data industry and provider of an end-to-end public data platform. Our Robotic Process Automation (RPA) framework automates internet-based tasks that support accurate, reliable and compliant alternative data from outside the enterprise. The Vertical Knowledge RPA framework platform is unique in offering the full range of RPA, Intelligent Automated Software (IAS) and Intelligent Automated Workflow (IAW) solutions to discover, connect, collect, enrich and integrate data from outside of the enterprise.
Vertical Knowledge provides the only commercially available end-to-end web collection framework capable of supporting scalable global collection and process automation across a wide variety of companies, industries, and publicly available data types.
We enable our clients to access and understand information that is publicly available but very challenging to discover, capture, and curate. Our clients demand excellence, innovation, and trust in our proprietary technology and methodologies to deliver them world-class data solutions for actionable insight.
Since day one, VK Software Engineers have helped tackle the complex and interesting challenge of discovering value hidden in the world’s data. We are pushing the technical envelope to solve these problems, and in the process, are helping to redefine how our clients leverage data. As the world of data continues to grow exponentially, the issues they address will only increase in difficulty, scale and excitement. In order to meet these challenges, we’ve built a data collection platform that allows us to ingest terabytes of data per day.
Problems at our level of complexity require a passion for learning as well as deep understanding across a wide array of technical competencies. While we face large-scale problems, we hire only the best to take them on. This enables us to keep team size small and individual impact significant.
The Data Collections Engineer will be responsible for extracting and ingesting data from websites using crawling tools. There is a team to help test the data and the scrape to ensure accuracy and quality. Collections Engineers will own the process to communicate about and rectify any issues with breaks as well as scale scrapes as needed and work with a team of other collection engineers to resolve issues with existing collection tools and sources.
