  • Unbiased

    Starting as the first in-house developer for Unbiased, I built up the whole team of ten people (including QA specialists).

    Unbiased has made its way from the early 2000s to its current look--a modern, functional, and highly maintainable service providing lots of various features for its customers.

    There were some tricky things like fully re-engineering the FSA checking subsystem, integrating to the Direct Debit payment gateway, and much more from a development perspective. There was even more tricky stuff trying to make the process and the project Agile and robust.

    Currently, I'm participating in requirements gathering, refinement, and tracking. I'm also designing high-level architecture and participating in discussions for the low-level architecture.
