Project History
  • Base Reality VR System for Information Management
    Led the development of a new type of a digital product MVP, from a conception stage to the final delivery stage.

    At Aresi Labs, we have developed a system designed to manage information and hold meetings in virtual reality (VR).

    It was one of the first systems in the world at that time which allowed up to 16 people to use the space at the same time.

    It has shown innovative and never-before-seen ways to convey the information in 3D and recreate LEAN's "War Room" concept in VR.

    Methodologies: Agile, Scrum
    Technologies: Unity, 3D Max, Sketch, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premier, C#, C++, JIRA, Trello

  • RBS 70 Large-scale Mapping System
    Led an extremely challenging project from the inception and the sales pitch to the final delivery and support stages.

    While at BPTI, I developed a method to build large-scale 3D models of real locations (more than 500 square kilometers). These models have had accurate geographic and GIS information preserved in them and could be used for military training capabilities.

    We have sold this product to one of the largest defense manufacturers in Europe, for their anti-air simulators systems.

    With my leadership, our team has successfully delivered this challenging project ahead of schedule.

    Methodologies: Waterfall, Agile, Kanban
    Technologies: Unity, 3D Max, Blender, ArcGIS, QGIS, OpenSceneGraph, C#, C++, Python, JIRA, Slack, Trello

    Led and managed a team of five Deloitte experts delivering a digital strategy to the largest retail bank in the region.

    Under my leadership, we have developed a comprehensive digital strategy together with an IT review and recommendations for further improvements in their IT infrastructure.

    This included many hours of interviews, sessions, research and focused on mobile banking and omnichannel strategies while also reviewing aging IT infrastructure capabilities.

    Methodologies: Waterfall
    Technologies: MS PowerPoint, MS Excel, Adobe Premier, MS SharePoint

  • Mobile Banking App Prototype
    Led the project of delivering a limited scope MVP to build a new digital bank for a largest retail bank in the region.

    I have led a small agile team of Android developers and UX designers to deliver an MVP for testing new concepts of a digital banking offer the bank was considering to deliver to its younger clients.

    Methodologies: Agile, Kanban
    Technologies: Sketch, Adobe Photoshop, Android, Android Studio, Java, JIRA, Trello

  • Small, High-endurance Civil Drone Project
    Led the effort to build a small, high-endurance civil drone for monitoring high-voltage power lines.

    Together with a team of hardware and software engineers, we have delivered a hardware and software MVPs of a system fully designed to operate autonomously and monitor high voltage power lines for defects.

    Methodologies: Waterfall
    Technologies: OpenPilot, C++, Redmine
