Challenge

I want to be notified about newly posted jobs for select companies and roles. However, there is no notification system available.

Solution

This script automatically searches for desired job postings and sends an email alerting me about those positions.

I wanted to be alerted of new job postings, so I created this script. The source code can be found on GitHub and an article/blog post with instructions on how to build it is found here.

In summary, it uses Puppeteer, an Automation library that automatically controls Chrome, to visit job seeking websites. Then, it scrapes that data, formats it, and sends those job postings to me via email.
