Peer Referral Product for Porter Partner App

Porter is an online logistics marketplace app that provides vehicles to small and medium businesses on demand like Uber. The project aims to launch a peer referral program among drivers to increase acquisition.

The program is required to set rewards and reward milestones configurable based on geographical location, vehicle type, and reward payouts automatically. I contributed to requirement dissection, a back end, and UI design, built user-facing flows on the Android app, and developed back-end applications.

The product has an adoption rate of 30% and increased driver acquisition by 20%.

Landing Screen Optimization in Booking.com App

Booking.com is the world's largest travel and experience booking platform. It gets huge traffic from SEO, but the web pages are not optimized for users due to a lack of personalized content. The aim of the project is to redirect the traffic to the app and optimize the content for users in order to improve the conversion rate.

I designed and built the deep linking microservice to land the users on the app screen from the web links. Also, I created a content management service to recommend stays and bookings on the landing page using a machine learning model. The user conversion increased by 1.5% after being redirected to the app, and the session per user increased by 15%.

Gamification to Increase Driver Engagement in Porter Partner App

The project aimed to improve driver engagement by creating game-like elements like milestones and rewards in the app. I owned building the back-end applications for computing rewards points, milestones, and the leaderboard, and generating rewards. Also, I integrated the back-end application with an Android app in Kotlin Multiplatform to provide a smooth end user experience. The product achieved 70% adoption and increased trips per driver by 5%.
