Multi Vendor Platform | A Blockchain-based Marketplace

An eCommerce system, where vendors could upload their products and expose it to the visitors of the website. It was a custom marketplace platform with multi-level membership plans featuring blockchain as a payment method.

Time-tracker | An Application Built with Angular and PHP

I have developed an application for managing work logs. It's used to store, filter, and export entries telling what amount of time was spent by a person on a certain activity. The application was using a rich UI built with Bootstrap and allows a multi-level permission scheme.

Direct Repair

Our clients wanted to implement an advanced navigation system that would allow their visitors to easily find parts and appliances by the manufacturer and by machine

I've built a pretty sophisticated system on top of Magento which allowed that kind of navigation.

It was a very performance-sensitive task due to the huge amount of machine-to-appliance connections (over 12 million) so I had to also build advanced indexers and implement it with help of a Solr-faceted search.


The client needed a nice and visually appealing website that would suit their fashion niche. She also was in need of constant maintenance, occasional improvements, and server support.

We helped our client with an implementation of all her ideas while providing maximum uptime and security for the website by providing DevOps and web development support.
