Shane Evans
Founder

Shane has been involved in startups since joining lastminute.com in 1999, where he led development of the most critical projects there for many years. Since that time he has been part of the founding team for a few companies, always seeking out interesting technical challenges. He was introduced to web crawling when leading development of the search systems at mydeco.com. Some of the web crawling code he wrote at that time was open sourced as the Scrapy project.

We are a globally distributed team of 98 people (most of them engineers) working on professional services, sales, support, sponsored Open Source work and more across several timezones for customers located in the US, Europe, Asia and the Americas.
