Recruitment Agency Software in React

Here, I built a recruitment agency software which consists of a landing page and an admin panel with multiple user roles supported. It's an AI-based platform that parses the resume and categorizes the candidates based on multiple parameters.

I also built a bulk email sender module in Node.js to notify the candidate and the companies in bulk.

Chrome Extension for Posting Content on Instagram and Facebook

In this side project, I created a Chrome plugin for Facebook and Instagram pages. If the user right clicks on the image, in the context menu, the plugin can add one more option to assign that image to a Facebook or Instagram page accompanied by a text.

I wrote it in a way such that multiple users can also work on the same page. The plugin is configurable, and by default, posts to Facebook every alternate hour.

Speed Dating App

On this project, I built a dating app that brought speed dating to the internet. I built the back-end in Python and Django, and the overall app was done for Android in Java. Also, I integrated libraries for video chatting and text messaging like TokBox.

Admin Portal in Vue.js

Here, I built a client sales app management portal using Vue.js.

APP FEATURES
• Add, delete, and update user information.
• Send notifications to a particular user or group based on type, region, and categories.
• Edit the React Native app via the admin portal itself. Since the app is intensely data-driven and the data updates on a regular basis, I built a feature through which any data/UI update in the app can be performed through the portal itself.
• Drag-n-drop users to manage the user hierarchy. I built an interactive interface where the admin can arrange the user hierarchy based on need and the app will start responding to the hierarchy from then on.
