Experience

  • Multisite WordPress Platform
    https://cubaexplorer.com

    A WordPress multisite built it for a travel agency with a unique custom made theme and plugins.

    I was the team lead and senior developer, and working closely with the team we were able to build a platform that allows the agency to create, promote, and sell their tours across their multisite. It also helps them to follow every step of their clients in order to bring them the best experience in the process.

  • Website for a Montreal Real Estate Agency
    https://ma-maison.ca/

    A WordPress website built it with a custom made theme with a unique design provided by the client.

    The website is also integrated with the provider of their listings (Centris) which allows them to get automatically daily updates of their properties, reducing considerably the administration work.

    I was the front-end and back-end developer for this project.
