UserKit | SDK for a User and Payment System

An SDK to handle user and payment system which utilized back-end services built tailored to a specific client. The SDK provides a complete package for the user ID system, secured by OAuth 2.0 flow and secured tokens. The SDK also acts as a proxy for payment services and card tokenization. This SDK is integrated into three applications and reduced over 90% development time in each application; the integration with the SDK is seamless and straightforward. I developed the iOS version of this SDK from scratch to completion while leading the architecture and implementation strategy for iOS and Android.

iOS E-wallet Application

Led the development and architecture of an e-wallet application built for a client. Planned the architecture and design pattern from the ground up, utilizing the MVVM architecture and coordinator pattern. Applied dependency injection framework, Swinject, as a service resolver to allow modularization of each component. Set up the entire automated distribution process using Fastlane and GitHub Actions. Ensured sufficient code quality by adding SwiftLint and automated unit test coverage report on each pull-requests.

iOS SDK to Enable Multi-region Usage of a Super-app

Developed an iOS SDK to support the transformation of a super-app to be used in multiple regions. This SDK provides a region-based configuration tailored to the region where the application is used. The SDK also ensures the integrity and availability of the configuration by applying a cache and retry mechanism.

I acted as the main iOS developer who built an iOS application for a membership and rewards system. The app features a membership system where the user can collect points when purchasing products at a particular store. Additionally, the application also has several mini-apps for gamification in which the user can use their points to play and earn rewards.
