Integration | Magnit

I designed and developed inter-application data exchange in the largest Russian retailer with a wide geography. My team implemented highload data flows which handled millions messages daily, monitoring and audit system, and guaranteed delivery mechanisms. I dealt with the application architecture, development, team management, and department work planning at different times.
