  • Sweepbright

    A Belgian based B2B app for real-estate agencies focused on automation. I joined the project at the start of the scale-up phase. The iOS app was running, but there were quite many issues, both code and design-wise.

    My goal was to clean-up the app making it more main-stream and fixing the main code issues during this process. This effort allowed us to grow at a much greater speed by entering the French market, for which a clean and polished iOS app was one of the main movers.

    Main code issues were undefined architecture that made the state very difficult to determine, heavy reliance on a very outdated third-party library, and a general lack of defined code-style and best practices.
