A loan company

A loan company
February 2018 - January 2020

A loan company operating on the car insurance market. It grants loans through a partner network. The project is divided into three separate parts: seller panel for partners, admin panel for loan management and backend application for loan processing. Among the requirements were automated SMS/email notifications and the generation of personalized documents in PDF form. I was solely in charge of the design and implementation of all of these applications according to the customer’s requirements. I also configured a dedicated server environment and application deployment with Ansible. The project had to be designed and implemented from the ground up, as no similar solution is available.
