Mega Media

My first allocation work in China. I created the project from scratch. The project goal was to make easy access to Chinese movies worldwide. Because of the "Chinese firewall," I used AWS cloud solution to mirror the content from Tencent Cloud. I built a 7-person team in Hangzhou for creating and maintaining the application. After MVP was realized in the first three months, more than 10,000 users were registered and started to use the platform for the movie trade.

While working on Unipay, my responsibility was to create a payment API gateway for third-party services. After we launched this service, the company's daily transaction flow grew from 5,000 to 15,000.

I created an automated CI/CD pipeline based on GitHub actions which would run checks and deploy the app if it passed the linting and tests. Designed PostgreSQL schema for service and TypeORM model structure.
