I'm currently one of the front-end developers of the app. Sometimes I work in the back end, which uses Serverless, Sequelize, Node.js, and other technologies. My role is to maintain and add new features, write tests, review code, and manage the continuous integration of features that I work on.
I was part of the front-end development team which worked very closely to the back-end and design staff building the web platform (where the user sells) and the application, where the user can customize their own store.
