MuleSoft-based Data Integration Solutions
The project was developed for Volvo Cars and involved the design and implementation of data integration solutions using Mulesoft's Anypoint Platform to connect various systems and applications.

My responsibilities included the development and maintenance of API interfaces, data flows, and ETL processes to facilitate seamless data exchange and synchronization. Additionally, I worked closely with stakeholders to gather integration requirements, perform data mapping, and define data transformation rules. To ensure the accuracy, consistency, and integrity of integrated data, I implemented data quality and governance practices.

During the project, I gained hands-on experience with AWS integrations, using various services such as AWS API Gateway, AWS S3, AWS SQS, AWS SNS, AWS Glue, and AWS CloudWatch. This allowed me to optimize the performance and scalability of data integration solutions by implementing caching strategies and fine-tuning the system.

To proactively identify and resolve integration issues, I created monitoring and error-handling mechanisms, which granted a smooth integration process.
