Bot Communication Platform for Retailers

As a senior full-stack developer, I was responsible for developing a communication platform (back end + admin front end + Viber bot + Telegram bot) that allows retailers to stay in touch with their customers.

Integrated the communication platform with the client's CRM that allows issuing new loyalty cards to new customers, visualizing customers' loyalty cards, issuing loyalty points, and showing customers' balances – directly from the bot.

The platform provided massive back-end scaling to support short-time massive push notifications announcing marketing activities via the bot to more than 1 million customers. The platform is integrated with other messaging providers to perform as a link in messaging cascade chain.

Sales Management Module

A bundle of microservices (internal and external) to support sales processes for a managing company (six production sites). My role was to investigate processes as-is, propose changes to the management, develop and implement new IT services (both back end and front end), and connect these services with running IT modules. As a result, the company increased its gross margin by $2 million for the first six months after the module came to production.

Time Management Mobile Application

A Flutter-based mobile application for tracking time and writing off time for projects and tasks for a company or individually. As a full-stack developer, I was responsible for choosing a technological stack and developing the application from the scratch bot back end and front end.

Microservices for a Taxi Fleet Management Company

As a full-stack developer, I created and implemented a number of microservices that supported connection with Yandex, Gett, and Citimobil taxi aggregators.

The taxi drivers' bot allowed drivers to get their current cash balance, claim cash payment orders, automatically execute cash transfers from aggregators to Visa and petrol cards, accounting, and reporting.

Bank Future Core IT Technologies

A fintech startup focused on developing cloud banking microservices. I was the CTO and the senior full-stack developer responsible for choosing the appropriate technology stack, implementing the back end, and developing the API, admin, and user front-ends.

All My Loyalty Cards Bot

Developed a Viber bot to keep customers' loyalty cards. Customers can add, edit, delete, and manage their favorite cards. Developed scalable back end, UI/UX, admin front end, and a QR and bar-code scanner front end. Integrated with some retailers' CRM to check if a customer has a loyalty card, to issue a card if required, and to show loyalty card balance.

Cash Refund Bot

Developed a Viber and Telegram Bot to allow a major mineral water producer to perform marketing action "Buy 4 and get a refund for the next item." Developed scalable back end and admin front end. Provided QR scanning to scan receipt data. Integrated with the Russian Federal Tax Service API to get receipt details and check marketing action conditions for participants. Integrated with a payment service to automatically transfer cash-back money.
