Total Cost of Ownership Calculator
The data is presented to users in tabular form, with a graph modal to show costs over the period of ownership.
The back end is written in Laravel and utilizes APIs to third-party finance interest calculators.
Used Car, Van, and Motorcycle Sales Portal
Users can contact auto dealers via the portal and arrange a test drive. After purchase, users can claim a cash reward that generates an invoice to the dealer.
I oversaw the search development, which utilized Elasticsearch and external APIs to filter vehicles that fit within the user's finance parameters.
