ISAAC Robo-advisor

With the input of financial experts, I designed a robo-advisor and led a small team that implemented a robo-advisor using Agile principles. Because of the novelty of the system, we needed lots of flexibility to deal with changes and improvements throughout the development process.

A platform to assist in developing a business idea featuring real-time collaboration.

I was in charge of implementing microservices for authentication, file storage, and data warehousing, as well as feature development and ensuring GDPR compliance.

I designed and led the implementation of a Magento-based eCommerce marketplace for luxury goods, which started in Vienna and later expanded to European countries. We have integrated 10 3rd-party shop systems. It offers worldwide payments and shipping and has customers all over the world.
