Beauty and Skincare Application

An eCommerce platform built from scratch for the cosmetics industry mainly concentrating on two key features:
1) Display the industry-leading talents, where they showcase their favorite makeup looks and tutorials. Customers can explore products and buy them on the go based on these looks.
2) A platform to display 200+ brands to navigate through them easily and filter or search by different categories and brands.

We had a small team assigned to this project. I worked as one of the core developers for the website and mobile applications using cutting-edge technologies like React, Material UI, Firebase, headless Shopify, and Flutter.

The platform hit its milestone of having a user base of 10,000 within two months from the go-live date and has healthy customer reviews on App and Play stores.

Talent Management Platform

A talent management platform with many interconnected submodules, aiming to build a solid human capital for UAE’s future generations.

I was one of the core developers transforming the existing manual system into the new digitized approach. My contributions included the following, built on React:
• Public scholarship application website that allows users to apply to different available scholarships programs built with React.
• Core talent management application where advisors can log in and monitor their assigned students, powered by Hasura GraphQL engine over PostgreSQL.
• Student hub application that allows students to manage their academic progress during their scholarship journey. Students could communicate in real-time notifications with their advisors and tutors.
• Tutor hub application for personal tutor-student monitoring and scheduling meetups.

I also worked on the following modules:
• Email microservice built mainly using Nodemailer and node-mailer-express-handlebars for triggering customized emails on certain events.
• Node.js microservice that acts as a middleware between MinIO storage server and PWAs and uses KeyCloak to securely manage file uploads and downloads from the browser to an S3-compatible object store.
