Experience

  • European Furniture eCommerce

    Initially, as a member of the platform team, I prepared the project infrastructure that would be ready to migrate step-by-step the old monolith store into micro front-end apps. When the infrastructure was done, I migrated the project page by page and was responsible for scaling the application in increased traffic, such as during summer sales. For one week each month, I was on call. I responded within ten minutes on every OpsGenie alert, investigated the problem, and discussed it with other affected teams as needed. I decided whether the fix needed immediate action or if a follow-up ticket could be created.

  • Web Extension for Knowledge Management System

    A web extension that can be integrated with any website (such as a customer service software). It was created for enterprise customers and was compatible with Chrome, Firefox, and Edge. As a front-end developer, I was responsible for collecting the requirements, planning the project, choosing technologies, and implementing all features. The biggest challenge in the project was to create a polyfill layer covering all the differences between browsers' APIs. If the extension was enabled for a page, keywords were searched and returned all articles with solutions from the knowledge system API.

  • Packages Delivery App

    An application that lets the user search for a driver that can deliver the package or help with moving. As a front-end developer, I created the entire application from scratch according to designs provided by the UX designer and applying all changes requested by the client.

  • Knowledge Management System

    A knowledge management system for enterprise customers. As the front-end developer, I implemented new features and fixed bugs. During my work on this project, I migrated the system to the latest Ext JS framework version.

  • Off-rental Vehicle Selling App

    An application dedicated to registered car dealers letting them buy off-rental cars. As the front-end developer, I implemented features, worked on bug fixes, and applied all changes requested by the client.
