Startup Job

Startup Job is a sample project to search startup jobs scraped from various websites written in Elixir/Phoenix(Backend) and React/Redux(Frontend).

This project is an umbrella project.

  • Scraper app is for scraping data from websites.



I created this app to understand Elixir/OTP and get more familliar with React.
