    • Built the event-based architecture for a complex healthcare assessment platform, which was scaled and now supports over 500 clinics in eight time zones.
    • Extended the standard Rails application structure with well-known design patterns like query, entity, command, handler, etc.
    • Set AWS DevOps deployment processes; all infrastructure — Infrastructure as Code, performance monitoring, continuous HIPAA compliance with daily/on-change scanning. Typical traffic generates four requests per second and 4,000 unique users daily.
    • Migrated from React with a Redux store and an API layer to the modern Hotwire stack in four months, experimented with Vite as an assets bundler, and built an isolated QA environment and automation coverage.
