A website for virtual currency marketing with millions of customers.

I designed a sophisticated back end written in C# for order processing, fraud detection, and integration with bitcoin and other currencies. I also designed a web UI that integrates with offer partners written in ASP.NET MVC and Razor and hosted on Azure. I then designed a robust data layer using SQL Server and Azure NoSQL Storage and set up Git source control, Azure DevOps continuous integration, and deployment to Azure with PowerShell scripts.

I wore many hats in this project, from advertising to marketing, business development to finances, and much more.
