  • WordPress Theme Development

    During the past two years, I've created custom WordPress themes and plugins as an outsourced developer for other agencies and therefore I cannot showcase them in my portfolio.

  • WordPress eCommerce Website

    I built, as an outsourced remote developer, a WordPress custom eCommerce site that connects customers with suppliers. I developed the whole eCommerce process, from the product to cart and checkout. I also developed a front-end dashboard for administrators, customers, and suppliers allowing them to handle orders, quotes, and shipment tracking. Payments are done via Square and everything was connected to Xero for online accounting.

  • WordPress Video Training Site

    I developed a custom WordPress video training site that had different payment plans, video progress tracking, and a dashboard for individuals to modify their details, update their subscription, and look over their video viewing and commenting history. Payments are done via Stripe.

  • JobAdder WordPress Plugin

    I developed JobAdder WordPress plugin for recruitment & HR client. Used JobAdder API and cron to import and maintain available jobs. I also developed front-end job apply form, job listing with location, keyword and category filter.
