Experience

  • Cialfo
    https://www.cialfo.co/

    Cialfo is on a mission to transform the higher education landscape through AI-driven solutions that simplify the college application and career guidance process. Students, counselors, parents, and university representatives use this app to dream, plan, and achieve their goals.

    I took ownership of two major user-side features, ensured that any change to the app affected these two features, and improved the user experience.

  • Reconnect Care
    https://reconnectcare.com/

    Reconnect Care simplifies access to detailed health information to put the patient in control. With access to easy-to-understand, real-time information, patients can make better choices and build relationships directly with healthcare professionals they feel comfortable with.

    I added additional features during the early stage of the project, making it more user-friendly and reliable.

  • MSCI ESG
    https://www.msci.com/our-solutions/esg-investing/esg-ratings

    A platform calculates a company's value and structure to make it easier for investors to decide about investing in the right company. It has data points by category and set values from public platform texts.

    I added an automation process for fetching values of data points and generating reports with new values. We defined a set of data points and categories for a specific group of companies to enable scheduling a job.

  • Hinterview
    https://hello.hinterview.com

    A platform that provides all components a recruiter might need, such as video interviews with recording features, sending questions to candidates and getting answers, sending profiles to end clients for approval, and updating the hiring status.

    I added features, fixed bugs, debugged issues on a production server, contributed to the team, conducted code reviews, and released the platform according to sales targets.

  • KidzWorld
    https://www.kidzworld.com/

    A social media app for kids to get updates about their education. It is a platform that enables users to find other students and connect with them and provides quizzes, entertainment, study materials, games, and sports-related knowledge. It has features like sending friend requests, chats, messages, and notifications.

    I was the only developer working on this product for four months, after which I became a leader of a team of six developers, a UI/UX developer, and a QA. I oversaw requirements and deliveries, developed new features, guided the team to achieve the target, and debugged and fixed the issues before they affected the platform's user experience.

  • GetCnergy
    https://getcnergy.com/

    A project to manage real-estate activities, such as adding members and collaborators and assigning tasks. It allows the owner to manage the property state and see the criteria for selling. The platform's back end is built with RoR, and the front end is with Angular.

    I started from scratch and added REST APIs with JSON responses, worked on implementing front-end flows using Angular, and led a team of four, including one Angular developer.

  • Cell Nuvo
    https://cellnuvo.com/

    A platform where users can register and access advertisements and surveys to earn credits and spend them per their needs on calls, SMS, and data plan activations.

  • Impact Health Platform

    A platform where users could search and select health insurance plans according to their location, age, and treatments.

    I wrote test cases, integrated the contacts list from Google and Yahoo, added features from the landing to the checkout page, and implemented Stripe for payment. I also fetched data from XML and PDF with hundreds of different structures and imported them into the database.

  • Breitenbush Hot Springs
    https://breitenbush.com/

    I migrated a resort reservation system from Ruby 1.8.7 and Rails 2.3.18 to Ruby 1.9.3 and Rails 3.2.21. It is a one-side application, meaning only the office can make and cancel reservations.

    I also was a part of the team developing a customer-side application. We implemented API to use all features of the existing application.
