Lineup.ai Revamp

Lineup.ai combines users' restaurant historical sales data with external factors like weather, local events, and more to generate unprecedentedly accurate hourly, daily, and weekly sales forecasts.

I created the dataflow-centric deployment pipeline using Prefect CLI, GitHub Actions, and ECR. Moreover, I standardized the EKS cluster in Terraform code for the Prefect flows, leveraging the Dask distributed and Karpenter features to harness the full capability of autoscaled workflows automation, lowering the total cost of ownership (TCO) by 60%.

Intelyse InSight Revamp

https://intelyse.com/
An information service and travel risks management platform that aims to help organizations put robust, practical systems, exercises, and documentation in place to better equip their people to safeguard and manage environmental uncertainties that hinder business functions, halt progress, prevent achievements, and endanger lives.

I created the CI/CD pipeline using GitHub Actions and built the entire autoscaled, highly-available infrastructure within AWS using Terraform. With the added cloud-native security, visibility, and external monitoring tools, I also incorporated Cloud Map and HAProxy internal load balancer within the ECS clusters to enable automatic service discovery, allowing low latency and high availability.

Therago | Formerly Clinigo

Therago is an Australian online medical appointment portal that lets guests and registered users search for allied health practitioners nearby.

Think Calendly but with search features for remote practitioners in Australia. I implemented the integration of HTML mockups with the actual implementation in Django REST Framework and React, hosted on AWS Lambda and S3.

I led its infrastructural acquisition from a US-based outsourcing company in Greenville, South Carolina. By upgrading its Python dependencies and remediating its application-level common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs), I abolished LambCI and streamlined its serverless deployment via GitHub Actions.

Rentahaus | Currently part of InventoryVolt

A progressive web application for lease contract drafting within Spain. Each component comprises navigable, fillable forms.

Using the provided HTML mockups, I implemented Angular and Eve integration like Flask-based API meta-framework and hosted it with AWS Lambda and S3.
