Software Developer

2015 - 2017

  • Participated in the development of various smart TV apps and websites. The development of the smart TV apps was made using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript along with an internal framework. With the help of an engine created by the company, the apps were generated to several smart TV platforms. As for the websites we mainly used the AngularJS framework.
  • Developed the The Weather Network Smart TV app (Canada's weather channel). This was the first official app I developed. I started when a colleague went on holiday. It was in the very beginning so I developed almost all of the front-end. I especially enjoyed working with the Google Maps JavaScript API, implementing some specific maps screens related to weather, radar, and traffic. This app is available in most of the smart TV markets.
  • Developed the Tivibu Smart TV App (Türk Telekom). I worked on the front-end of this Turkish TV app, mainly on creating new features and fixing all sorts of bugs. This app will only be available in the Turkish smart TV markets.

  • Worked for Nuances—a social online platform where users can share with others what words mean to them through images or text.
  • Worked on this project as a final project of my bachelor's degree before the beginning of this startup program. Worked as a full-stack developer, but since we were a team of three, we all had to do a little bit of everything; from research or programming and designing to finding marketing strategies and so on.
  • Handled project hiccups. Our most difficult obstacle was not having enough resources to expand our idea globally, but in technical terms it was when we decided to change the structure of our database. It took a while, but in the end we knew it was the best decision, in order to make things right. If we shied away from change we would have bigger problems in the near future.
