I led the development team of mobile and web applications for corporate clients of the bank.

Lead Web Frontend Developer
I developed from scratch the Frontend part of an international food wholesale platform. The platform made possible to find partners and conclude deals with them. The project was very promising and was even presented at the state level by the first persons of the country during the Expert Dialogue of the BRICS countries on e-commerce and the Global GS1 International Forum and others, in which I participated as an industry expert. But, unfortunately, the project did not reach traction and eventually closed.

Full Stack Web Developer
Intermediary service for the delivery of goods from online stores and auctions around the world with transit warehouses in five different countries. This project was interesting because it was a start-up of three students, which suddenly turned out to be very popular and expanded on the run following the growth in demand for its services. It was very interesting to participate in the development and observe from the inside how a young company solves the issues of startup growth.
