Full-stack Developer

2016 - 2019

  • Contributed to developing a manufacturing execution system used for planning, tracking, and visualization of manufacturing processes used by multiple clients in large-scale production environments.
  • Developed a mobile application for the MES system, mainly used by shop-floor workers to track their assignments and production orders, allowing for easier QA procedures and reporting their work status.
  • Implemented flexible server connection mechanisms for a mobile application enabling multi-facility clients to switch easily between internal sites' networks as well as connect to cloud services.

Government Projects and KPIs Data Visualization Tool

A highly customizable app that allows creating dashboards and displaying data in numerous ways. The app also featured multiple data analysis tools for numerical datasets and data input supervised through configurable approval processes connected with a role-based access system.

In the project, I was the solution architect and technical leader. Besides actual implementation, my responsibilities involved maintaining the high codebase quality through code review, cooperating with the design team to ensure proper user experience, mentoring the team members, and, most importantly, translating and refining the requirements into small, independent, and well-defined features keeping in mind the customizable nature of the system.

Cryptocurrency Trading Helper

A TypeScript, Express, and React app for a large cryptocurrency trading company featuring portfolio management tools and various metrics visualizations with real-time data acquired through integrations with most major cryptocurrency market APIs.

The project required developing algorithms for efficiently taking huge amounts of data into account while calculating the metrics based on the entire data set. Data was polled with set frequency and then parsed, aggregated, and stored in the DynamoDB together with some metadata calculated incrementally. It allowed for a fast on-demand response to feeding the charts with freshly calculated metrics.

The other major feature was the portfolio management tool, which acquired data from external APIs. Its role was to aggregate the data from multiple sources and display it on the dashboard. The system allowed manual inputs and overrides to account for the assets stored on services with no programmatic state acquisition.

COVID-19 Workplace Safety App

https://www.withhealth.com/workplace-safety/
A web app for enterprises to help track their employees' health state during the pandemic of COVID-19. The system allowed for daily employee surveying, tracking their predispositions, vaccinations, scheduling tests, and doctor's appointments with regard to the risk calculated by the previously collected data. Over 100.000 users have used the application up to this moment.
The system was hosted by AWS and was written in TypeScript using Node.js/Express and React together with PostgreSQL.
Some of the biggest challenges were sending out emails/text messages to many users and allowing the employee surveying and risk calculation logic to be highly customizable between enterprise clients.

Manufacturing Execution System Mobile App

A mobile application as a part of a bigger MES system, written in Angular 4 and Ionic, built for Windows and Android devices. Developed almost entirely on my own, with code-review, QA process assistance and general guidelines from team colleagues working on other parts of the system.

The app was used mainly by shop-floor workers to track their assignments and production orders using native device possibilities to facilitate the tedious processes like reporting discrepancies, orders states and quality assurance. Submitted data was aggregated and analyzed to help management make informed decisions for the production processes.

The biggest challenges lay in keeping the app in implementing flexible server connection mechanisms for a mobile application enabling multi-facility clients to switch easily between internal sites' networks and connect to cloud services. Another interesting feature was that the app did not require a constant network connection. It could be used anywhere in the facility where the network might not have been available, so caching and synchronizing the data with server mechanisms were required.

Executive Job Market Candidate Assessment Tool

https://vanderindex.com
The project involved the design and implementation of an assessment tool for the executive job market, serving the applicants to find out their strengths and weaknesses, as well as recruiters to match the person with a perfect opportunity. The features included individual and group assessment surveys, preparing results report PDFs, and sending out email notifications. The app also featured a custom administrative panel for content management, assessments state, and user results preview based on a role-based access control system.

I was responsible for the entire technical side of the project, cooperating with the business side to establish, refine, and estimate the functional and technical requirements, optimizing the development order to fit within the scheduled marketing timeframe, and ensuring a good UX for end users, recruiters, and administrators.
