  • Affiliate Revenue Tracking and Management System

    Oversaw a team of three developers creating an affiliate revenue tracking and management system that works by scraping affiliate programs daily and monthly and aggregating the data to show relevant information. It can communicate with 12 affiliate programs that do not have API by logging in, scraping, and sending an invoice for scraped content.

    We developed the API using Node.js, the front end with TypeScript, React, Redux, Redux-saga, and Ant Design, and for the scraper, we used a cron job written using Node.js. The cron job reports' failed attempts give notifications. This project also uses GitLab CI/CD and deploys the changes on the server set up on DigitalOcean. The Docker and Docker Compose were set up to run multiple Docker instances on both staging and production environments for the back and front ends.

This website uses WordPress, JQuery, Bootstrap, and JavaScript and it also has an API made with Node.js that scrapes exchange rates from different banks.

    The website got over 800 clicks on Google from around the world. The company is planning to make other comparison websites for different niches.

    Fruity Slots is a WordPress SEO-driven website with a developed theme. I made this website for a company under Addis Software to score on search engines.

The front end was developed using customized Bootstrap, Sass, and custom CSS, and it employed jQuery, JavaScript, and Vue.js.

    The company scored on search engines with keywords and expanded their reviewed items.
