  • Lumeer (Development)

    As a CTO, I was responsible for the development of this visual project and team management tool.

    I led a team of up to five developers, designed the architecture of the system, and implemented a large part of it.

    The back end was based on Java EE, ran in a WildFly application server, and used MongoDB as the primary data storage. The front end was based on Angular; it was made fully reactive using NgRx state management library and used many other libraries (such as Mapbox GL, Plotly, Frappe Gantt, etc.) to display various visual representations of data. The application ran on multiple nodes in DigitalOcean cloud and used Auth0 for user authentication.

    The design decisions I made early on enabled us, for example, to easily implement real-time user collaboration using Pusher in later stages.

  • Mapotic (Development)

    I gradually became the main front-end developer responsible for this map social network with over 50 000 monthly active users. The application was based on the latest Angular and used Leaflet to render a map. I introduced a new Redux-like architecture (based on NgRx) which contributed to smooth UX and made the application more stable.

  • SilverWare (Development)

    I contributed to this microservice platform while working on my master's thesis. I integrated various fault-tolerance mechanisms (based on Hystrix) which can be easily configured by Java annotations. In order to enable this, I also had to make significant changes in the SilverWare core.

  • PSI Coupon Dashboard (Development)

    I built from scratch a web administration for an iOS app based on Firebase. The web application was built using Angular, NgRx, and Material Dashboard Pro theme.

  • HA Blueprints (Development)

    I built a web application which enables users to share blueprints of their houses with others. It was built using Angular, NgRx, and Material Dashboard Pro theme. We used Firebase as the database, file storage, and authentication service; various tasks were also automated using cloud functions.
