Leading a team of two other Software Engineers(Frontend) in building Kobo's in-house payment platform, Partner facing app and also the Kobo's customer facing app). I was responsible for building the product from nothing, designing the architecture of the apps(frontend), provided simple and beautiful interfaces with great UX, build script and also dockerizing the app. The technology in use here is HTML5, CSS3, React(hooks, context, styled- components, react-testing-library etc) and Docker. The updated app which was extended to cater for Arabic customers will be launched in Egypt in May. Bootstrapped two Kobocare Dashboards(one for in-house control and the other for our partners) for one of our value-added services. The applications manage transactions, provided analytics and ensure smooth operations between our partners, truck drivers and the Kobo360 team. I was responsible for designing the architecture of the app, provide build scripts that helped dockerize the app and deploy to AWS. The tech stack used here was HTML5, CSS3, React/Redux and AWS. Both apps were launched just after two months of development. Worked with a team that rebuilt and rebranded the Kobo360 website. It contains the addition of new features like the price estimator which helps companies with logistics needs estimate price from moving goods from one location to another. This helped bring transparency in the business and increased partners trust on Kobo360. I handled the frontend part of the website. The stack here was plainly Reactjs with HTML5 and CSS3.
