Freelance Job Portal

Freelance Job Platform

I successfully led the development and deployment of a Django-based Job Portal for Freelancers, utilizing Docker for containerization, AWS for cloud services, Open AI for AI features, Gitlab for CI/CD and incorporating best practices in software development.

I successfully executed a comprehensive project for a job portal, enhancing its functionality and ensuring a seamless user experience. My tasks included deploying a Django Python container online with HTTPS access, integrating a PostgreSQL RDS database for data storage, and configuring AWS EC2 with Docker for Dev environment.

Additionally, I tackled domain management challenges, addressing issues with domain by implementing AWS Route53. The technical implementation extended to establishing a secure connection for the domain.

For the pre-registration portal, I orchestrated the creation of two operational environments—Qualif/Test and Production—implementing a robust GitLab CI/CD pipeline for automatic deployment. The solution included a streamlined process for publication and rollback in the Production environment.

To optimize operating costs, I carefully evaluated and selected the most suitable hosting solution from options like Elastic Beanstalk, Elastic Container Service (ECS), or Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). The successful completion of these objectives paved the way for the commencement of the contract.

I have dockerized the django application and deployed it on AWS EC2 for dev and AWS Fargate for production.

I am proud to have met the client's expectations within the stipulated timeline.

AdTech Platform

Ad Tech Platform

I worked as a Senior Back-End Engineer at PushGroup UK, a leading advertising agency, where I played a pivotal role in the development and maintenance of their in-house Ad-tech product. This robust platform leveraged cutting-edge technologies, including Python Django with DRF for back-end development and Angular for the front-end. The software harnessed the power of Google BigQuery for processing big data and incorporated machine learning models to autonomously manage ad budgeting.

One of the standout features I contributed to was the creation of an AI-powered campaign generation system in collaboration with OpenAI. Users could input their best-performing campaigns, and the platform would generate various ad campaign variations tailored to character limits for Facebook and Google Ads, all while preserving the desired tone of the ad. This innovative approach streamlined campaign management and improved advertising efficiency.

The software unified the management of social media ad campaigns under a single, user-friendly platform, enabling users to create, manage campaigns, and efficiently allocate budgets. The platform also included alerting capabilities to ensure timely campaign adjustments.

To facilitate seamless third-party integrations for managing ad campaigns and social media ads, I extensively worked on API integrations.

The server architecture was hosted on AWS for robust performance and scalability, and for CI/CD, we implemented Circle CI, ensuring the reliability and efficiency of software updates and releases.

My contributions at PushGroup UK in enhancing the Ad-tech platform's capabilities and its overall performance were integral in providing users with an effective and comprehensive solution for their advertising needs.
