Senior Java Software Engineer
The startup intended to build a platform for managing freelance-related projects, aiming to streamline project management, communication, and collaboration between freelancers and clients. This system had to be highly scalable, secure, and user-friendly, catering to a diverse range of freelancers and clients across various industries. It had to support project bidding and candidate discovery features.
  • Engineered robust APIs and meticulously maintained elevated test coverage by diligently conducting comprehensive unit and integration testing
  • Drastically reduced platform costs by leveraging Google CloudRun capabilities, using a serverless frontend component in order to avoid keeping the service up all the time

migration of its old platform to a new microservice architecture.

Senior Java Software Engineer
A telecommunications company struggled with the migration of its old platform to a new microservice architecture. In order to achieve that, a new platform had to be built, including the frontend, backend, and data layer. The next step would be to move the data into the new one, using scripts for fetching, mapping, and inserting the parsed data.
  • Ensured a highly responsive back-end component by designing a microservice environment powered by Spring Boot and Kotlin
  • Achieved a 10x faster communication time between microservices, by using gRPC Remote Procedure Calls instead of REST calls
  • Bumped customer satisfaction by building a new user-friendly interface using React and TypeScript
  • Provided a flexible data layer using MongoDB for the suitable services.

During the transition phase from an old platform to a new one, the client from the telecommunications industry needed a backup solution in case of failure. If something goes wrong, the client should be able to use the old service until a fix is in place. In order to do that, the old data should always be in sync with the newly created one.

  • Ensured 100% synchronization between the old datastore and the new one by having a Kafka queue communicating with a provisioning service, which inserted it into the old data storage
  • Maintained the new platform aware of any failure in the old one, by notifying the operation status through another queue

The client needed an online banking application for legal entities, in order to compete in the banking industry. The app had to accommodate modern features with a user- riendly interface, that would minimize the customer support involvement, while accommodating millions of users.

  • Ensured close to 100% customer satisfaction by adopting an asynchronous approach for long processes, enabling the client to do multiple actions at the same time
  • Drastically reduced application response time, by using Redis distributed cache which minimized interaction with the database layer
  • Reduced audit persistence time to 1/3, by redesigning the application to use a non-relational database solution, like Cassandra.

This banking client required a fast solution for transaction history management. Due to bank politics, each time a transaction takes place, it needs to be stored for an extended period. A slow mechanism for saving transaction history could slow down the entire payment flow and impact customer satisfaction.

  • Improved transaction flow time by 50%, by using a non-relational database solution, in this case Cassandra
  • Dropped read time 10X, by using the database together with a search engine like Solr, capabale of full-text search and real-time indexing.

The bank needed a solution for processing bulk salary payment requests placed by its business clients. It needed to be as user-friendly as possible, enabling the client to load its salary files directly into the platform, minimizing time and human interaction.

  • Achieved a massive increase in customer satisfaction, by building a mechanism for parsing salary excel files uploaded by the clients
  • Enabled the customer to do multiple actions in the app while waiting for the process to finish, by choosing an asynchronous approach for request processing, using message queues
  • Ensured 100% transparency for customers by constantly updating the processing status and by generating an excel result file at the end of the process

Java Software Engineer
The banking client wanted to migrate a graphical tool used for managing loan rules to an upgraded mantainable and scalable web application. They concluded that having a license and professionals dedicated to a legacy graphical tool was not financially sustainable. The feasible solution was building an internal service that would accommodate the business needs.
  • Increased scalability 10X, by designing a higly scalable solution using the reactive programming paradigm
  • Drastically reduced development time by 90% for new business flows , due to the flexibility of a high-level programming language instead of a limited graphical one
  • Saved 80% of infrastructure maintenance cost, by discarding an expensive license and its associated consulting costs

Java Software Engineer
The e-commerce platform needed a service for assignment management. These notifications were sent when user assistance was needed and were listed in multiple places in the app. The business team identified the need to centralize them, so a new solution was needed to accommodate a unified assignment logic.
  • Simplified the business logic by creating a common assignment data model
  • Improved the architecture and, as a result, the future development time by 50%, by migrating the old logic from legacy projects to a dedicated microservice
  • Ensured up to 100% application stability, by introducing unit and integration tests to all the business cases
