Red Oak Capital

As a developer and technical architect on this project, I implemented multiple complex modules that included experience cloud, Salesforce Lightning development, complex security models, custom decision engines, and other app and API integrations.

HIGHLIGHTS
1) Implemented the multi-tenant Lightning Community platform where end users can make investments and apply for loans as well.
2) Created a sharing ledger-based security model, where we developed the enhanced version of Apex sharing that logs the sharing reason with each of the persons and recalculates the sharing even if the owner of the record gets changed.
3) Developed a decision tree that allows users to add dynamic conditions, and based on the result, the loan officer defines the loan eligibility.
4) Built integration with Conga Composer that allows generating the multiple documents that are required to complete the whole investment and loan process.
5) Built integration with DocuSign that helps speed up the document signing process and get the deals to close faster.
6) Managed Google Drive, Bank, and background check API integrations
7) Worked on multiple other API integrations.

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Social Intranet

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. is the largest generic drug manufacturer globally and one of the 15 largest pharmaceutical companies worldwide, headquartered in Petah Tikva, Israel. It specializes in generic and proprietary pharmaceuticals and active pharmaceutical ingredients.

I helped develop Edgeforce, a social intranet their internal employees use to easily collaborate and access documents from various devices like mobile, iPad, and desktops.

Bid Management Pursuit Process

The Bid Management Pursuit Process (BMPP) was designed to pursue bids within Xerox- global, large complex deals and locally managed, multi-country pursuits.

This globally consistent processing is targeted at achieving two core objectives:
• Make business more successful, promoting winning business.
• Increase business win rate through value via internal governance.

Vaccine Management System

I worked as a technical architect and lead on a Salesforce-based vaccine management application, which is one of the largest, most complex, and elegant vaccination systems in the world that was delivered within three weeks. Created intuitive mobile and web vaccine scheduling, inventory, and reporting solutions for patients, clinicians, and administrators with a customized back-end data model. It is enabled for 3rd dose vaccine appointments as well.

COVID-19 Contact Tracing

There was a rapid need for a solution to COVID-19 contact tracing, testing, and scheduling. We built system integrations to leverage existing systems and tools and speed up delivering functionality to the business.

HIGHLIGHTS
1) Architected the scalable and enterprise-level system.
2) Leveraged a GovCloud solution and coordinated a high-security environment, including security scans as well as static code analysis.
3) Leveraged platform security features, including profiles and roles, encryption, and login protections, including MFA.
4) Supported third-party platforms to ensure secure data transfer and review.
5) Supported secure browser plugins for these tools.
6) Coordinate business units to maintain a high availability and avoid outages and limits.

Unemployment Insurance, Pandemic Unemployment Assistance Program

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic resulted in a lot of people losing their jobs, and the government was looking for a quick solution to provide support to its citizens amidst this crisis.

In less than a month, my team and I developed three different full custom data-gathering applications on the community cloud. They captured over 100+ data points and determined eligibility and statutes. It also had a custom community to show all the existing gathered data points and filed weekly certifications, as well as a payment service that creates payment applicants for every certification filed and allows the internal staff to adjust and stop the auto-generated payments.

HIGHLIGHTS
1) Coordinated with clients, US, and India teams.
2) Led the fast-paced development of the project from the technical
front.
3) Helped the BA team convert business requirements into technical
specifications for the dev team to work.

Senior Salesforce Developer

Helped one of the Global Online Education Platforms to handle and process the high volume of data. Also, helped to align the existing CPQ solution with the latest business requirements. Delivered the solution to the client at a very fast speed with quality.

Everyone on the client's team was really happy with the fast outcome that I provided and gave great feedback multiple times.
