The most amazing...

...algorithm I built was one to match riders and drivers in a carpooling app that considered time and variations of route coordinates and metrics.


  • Founder | Developer

    2014 - 2017
    Rabbit Internet
    • Worked as a full-stack and only developer with a focus on Android and Python Django.
    • Developed, from scratch, a carpooling app that a user could add school or work daily commute details and be matched with someone driving on a similar route and considering stops in the middle of the route. The app was praised by users and rated 3.8 out of 5 stars in the store. The company got a funding offer from a Greek fund, but ultimately the business was shut down because it wasn't financially sustainable in the short term and would need a lot of financing in the next 5 years.

  • Android Developer

    2015 - 2016
    • Spearheaded a refactoring project to make the code conform to Google's best practices guidelines; taking the Google IO app project as a reference.
    • Proposed the technology stack for and built the main screen of the app which was the most important screen and one of the competitive differentials of the product. The screen was custom built similarly to the bubbles' interface in the Apple Music app using OpenGL/LibGDX.
    • Coded, prior to the beta launch, the app's espresso tests and ran them in AWS Device Farm.
    • Worked on minor updates in the iOS version.

  • Tellzone App (Development)

    Tellzone is a social network that used geo-fencing to connect people that frequents the same places. It was targeted at gig economy individuals. Users can add Tells when they are visiting a place, like adding a note to a message board.

    The Tell board was built using LibGDX, OpenGL and a physics engine. Tells floated in user screen like bubbles, each with a short description, and when the user clicked on one of them, they expanded to show it's whole content and interaction options. The interface was pretty similar to the bubbles onboard screen present in the Apple Music app.

  • Vault12 (Development)

    A crypto wallet to give custody of your cryptocurrency to a group of people. It was developed in Cordova and also is strongly encrypted which was done by integrating a NaCl C++ library

  • Competition Gym App (Development)

    This is an Android app to collect and track workout data for various types of training (running, cycling, and gym). The mobile app was developed with a standalone wear app with 1.x and 2.0 distributions. It also has location tracking, body sensors, and a step count sensor used to collect data, calculate calories spent, and traveled distance for appropriate cases.

    The project was structured with a shared module for mobile and wear. It has adaptive wear UI layout components used for a seamless use in both squared and rounded devices. The wear app communicated with the companion app using the Data Layer API.
