Powered by People     PBP Produce     Software Engineer     Contract
Nov 2019 - Present

  • We built the front-end application using React js. Leveraging on Material UI, the front end is built to simulate a beautiful and seamless user experience.
  • Our team built the back-end services using Python Django and Python Flask frameworks.
  • All applications are deployed to AWS. I containerized the services using Docker and used Kubernetes to help in deployment and scalability of the services.
  • In the front-end, I leveraged the react-google-charts library to build data visualization tools (dashboards), engineered the production management tool and login and sign up wizards.
  • In the back-end, I wrote the algorithms necessary for actualizing the production management tool. The tool leverages on an open source product (ERPNext).

Skills used: React, AWS, Kubernetes, Python
