GreenSwap API | Manage and Track Carbon Footprint for Food Products and Recipes

https://docs.greenswapp.com/
I single-handedly architected and implemented the GreenSwapp API. The API is used to track the carbon footprint of food products and recipes and was written with Go, gRPC, and the PostgreSQL database. I also created user payment and checkout APIs and collaborated with front-end engineers to implement an online grocery delivery app.

Data Warehouse for Business Insights

https://app.data4life.care
I collaborated with multiple stakeholders to gather requirements to architect a data warehouse for the company using design documents in a remote setup. Once the architecture was finished, I worked with fellow engineers to implement the event-driven data pipelines.

Digital Health | Data Sharing Between Patients and Doctors

https://app.data4life.care
I led a company-wide OKR to enable patients to share end-to-end encrypted data with their doctors. By scanning a patient-generated QR code or going to a URL and entering a PIN provided by the patient, the doctor could access the patient's information from an end-to-end encrypted platform.

The project involved layering an encryption protocol on top of OAuth 2.0, enabling user research by rapid prototyping, and collaborating with third parties for penetration testing.

JavaScript SDK for Third Parties End-to-end Encryption

https://app.data4life.care
As part of the team, I implemented an end-to-end encrypted, zero-knowledge healthcare platform for patients and a JavaScript SDK executing the designed encryption protocols. Partners and third parties would later use this SDK to send encrypted healthcare data to the platform and decrypt that data according to FHIR standards.

Angular-Spring Web Portal

I developed a user management portal for a company operating in the healthcare industry, using AngularJS and the Java Spring framework. This portal forms an interface for doctors and nurses that gives them access to all patient details and records and helps them organize their tasks and appointments. The app was presented to CEOs of many medical organizations and was highly appreciated.

Proprietary Digital Receipt Delivery System for POS Systems

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7xlQhfnNIU
I created a receipt delivery system to integrate with a point of sales systems at restaurants and grocery stores. The customer could tap their phone on the device at the cash counter and receive the receipts digitally on their phones.

Integration of a Payments API with a Platform

I integrated the Razorpay payments API with the Babajob job platform. This involved working as a full-stack developer to make changes on the front end and handle the required API callback on the back end.
