ScraperAPI is a popular web scraping tool founded in 2018.
It was created by a team of developers with a shared vision: to help companies collect clean, insightful data without getting blocked.
From what started in 2018 as a one-person project has grown into an international team of data processing and web scraping enthusiasts. In addition, we’ve expanded in other departments and added to our team of engineers, designers, customer service agents, and marketers.
We’re building the next generation of web scraping tools: a world where data collection is a breeze and where publicly available data is at anyone’s doorstep.
CTO of ScraperAPI
Setting up proxy servers and headless browsers, handling IP rotation, and outsmart CAPTCHAs are just a few of the tiresome issues that businesses face when collecting online data themselves. And still, they’re unable to scrape at scale without getting blocked. By navigating the storm ourselves, we’ve made web scraping easier for 10,000+ brands today.
Our team is working tirelessly to keep thousands of scrapers and projects running while streamlining the scraping process with a simple API call. We’re never done—it’s a cat and mouse game. There’s always research and development improvements for our product growth and your user experience.
