Bones Coffee
Design to production development of this highly customized Shopify Plus store. I had to implement a very detailed design into fully working tools used to buy the company's products either as a single purchase or a monthly or prepaid subscription.

The developed theme fully integrates with numerous third-party apps such as Yotpo, Recharge, and Klaviyo.

Ascent Protein
Ascent Protein is a company that sells high-quality supplements aimed to increase athletic performance.

They needed a website where they could sell their products to the ultimate consumer (retail) but also wholesale; they chose Shopify Plus as a platform. The wholesale part was covered using third-party apps and a very well tagging plan of the content that was targeting different types of users.

I developed the Shopify theme from a given design in Sketch and integrated all the desired functionality by using Liquid or by customizing third-party apps' functionality.

The client also requested a tool that would help their users understand what product is recommended for their lifestyle and what is the optimum quantity that they need, based on the given answers. I had to develop this using jQuery and Liquid code on top of a not so friendly Shopify environment that doesn't allow URL parameters to be directly read in the theme's code.

Vital Plan (Store)
Vital Plan is a supplement company based in the US. They needed to separate their presentation website from the online store.

For the online store, they chose Shopify Plus. I had to develop the Shopify responsive theme from a given design, and integrate all of the required custom functionality.

They are selling their products both as a single purchase or as a subscription. I had to integrate this custom functionality using third-party apps (Recharge Recurring Payments) and a lot of customization to fit the theme and the marketing strategies that were established.

The dynamic cart also required a lot of custom work that would allow switching from normal to subscription product without revisiting the product page, something that neither Shopify nor the 3rd party apps do.

A significant amount of work was also put in integrating unique design elements (responsive across all possible devices), that would allow custom functionality while dealing with the third-party app's limitations and Shopify theming environment.

Bella Vita Bags

Bella Vita Bags is a highly advertised company on social media, it had a video that became viral about their star product: a fancy bag that actually holds a hidden wine box.

After being given the design files, I developed the Shopify theme for this store and added all the integrations with third-party apps and various Shopify elements.

Developed interactive and dynamic design sections using JavaScript and created schema blocks for easy management of content using the Shopify Customize tool.

The website was built for retail and wholesale purchases. It features a product quick view popup and has integrated an AJAX add to cart functionality for quickly adding products to cart using Shopify AJAX calls, without refreshing the page.

Hostpapa is a large Canadian hosting company. They have websites in 19 countries/regions (TLDs) and four languages.

I was in charge of implementing new features and tools that had to be integrated into the Silverstripe platform.

Those were developed using HTML, CSS, jQuery, Javascript, and a mix of Bootstrap 3 and 4. Being the full-stack developer in the team I was often required to integrate helper classes in the PHP backend framework.

I was also uploading formatted content in the website's internal CMS and maintained styling and functionality across all 19 domains and 4 languages.

Quality of the worked I was doing was rigorously checked by an internal QA team and on new features by 3rd party teams that made sure everything is perfect on all domains and at every Bootstrap responsive breakpoint.

The biggest task on this project was to refactor the core code of the main store to use Bootstrap 4 instead of 3, starting with the Alpha release.

Technologies and tools used while working on this project were PHP, Silvestripe, CSS, HTML, Wordpress, git, Slack, Pivotal Tracker, Jira, MySQL, and MySQL Workbench.

Site5 is one of the largest hosting companies that was purchased by EIG.

I was in charge of integrating new designs and update the website's general look and functionality.

Being the full-stack developer on this project I often developed helper classes in the backend to facilitate new frontend content and features.

Technologies and tools used while working on this project were PHP, CSS, HTML, WordPress, git, Slack, and Pivotal Tracker.
