Intranet for a Healthcare Company

Created an internal data registry for a 20,000+ employee publicly traded healthcare company. I structured the back end and data models, oversaw the design team, developed the main UI features, and led a team of developers.

The main requirements of the projects were the ability to create different user roles, with each department having its own administrator. Integration of single sign-on via the company's SAML/LDAP server and creating an intuitive and user-friendly interface that non-technology users could easily navigate. This cut the maintenance costs by migrating the platform from premium CMS to a self-hosted solution.
