I'm a logical problem solver, advocate for simple solutions. Overall a generalist and quick thinker, I provide ideas taking into consideration the bigger picture, and I pride myself on being able to develop and implement business systems quickly and efficiently.
Worked as the technical owner of the Motour app: a rebrand of the Bikenav application which services it's users with algorithmically driven routes provided by Mapbox integration. Responsible for API development with Flask, DB management with Firestore and infrastructure on Heroku amongst a team of 5. Occasionally assisted on frontend development with Angular.
Working in the Product team as a fullstack engineer, expanding the exisiting service oriented codebase with new features and mantaining the Heroku/AWS Hybrid architecture. I migrated the existing claim backend from using Django forms to a REST API architecure to be used by thousands of users every day. Led the development of integrations with external financial and insurance partners (TDS, Munich Re, Reapit, Openbanking) and planned technical roadmaps and tasks for fellow engineers. Assisted in hiring and onboarding and mentoring junior and senior engineers.
As part of the Client Success team, I built features for the Enterprise side of the business, The tech stack was primarily custom PHP with frequent use of Angular, SQL, and Bash. Successfully led A/B tests which resulted in raising user retention by 10%. Our team was also part of the migration of the website from Jquery and AngularJS to Angular 2+. Occasionally assisted the API team to fix bugs in Python. Assisted in hiring and onboarding and mentoring junior engineers.
Led the backend development of the initial MVP of the product: a platform for health assestement and B2B improvement programs. I introduced logging, documentation, unit testing, and 2fa to the existing codebase. I also upgraded the legacy Django version to a supported one. Setup infrastructure for health data retrieval to be used on future machine learning scenarios using Scikit-learn to enable predictability on possible user conditions.
I was brought in for a full stack development and maintenance of a complex booking application for venues and construction sites built on a Django, AngularJS, AWS stack. Apache Solr was used to index booking-related data, speeding up retrieval time for the frontend and mobile app, with MySQL used as a relational store. I was also responsible for migrating the existing APIs to use Django Rest Framework.
Initially assigned with the development of the infrastructure of the main Django app which communicated without remote devices. I used MQTT as a pub/sub broker, sending a Protobuf-encoded message every 5 seconds for real-time client interaction and visualization of their electrical consumption. Test Driven Development was used throughout the project. Towards the end of the role, I implemented continuous integration with Jenkins for our backend and maintained the embedded Linux distro (Yocto) of the remote devices.
