Pharmaceutical Drug Launch Platform

Aquil.io โ€“ 2020

Responsible for architecting and developing a platform to track the multi-year process of taking a pharmaceutical drug to market.

Hybrid PWA for booking Movers

Aquil.io โ€“ 2019

Developed a PWA using GatsbyJS and Apollo that allowed users to arrange local and cross-country moves between houses.

โ€ฃ
Details

Half of the site was a static marketing site that pulled its content from a CMS. The other half was a dynamic application that walked the user through a series of steps to determine a price and date for the move.

The multi-step wizard allowed deep linking to any step, saved progress in localStorage, and involved complex async validations that changed the step a user was taken to next.

Responsible for architecting and developing a secure document collaboration platform for a pharmaceutical company.

โ€ฃ
Details

The frontend was built in React with deep integration with Box UI Elements. We were one of the first projects to use Box's OpenWith feature and routinely helped the Box team debug issues.

The API was built in FeathersJS and used Auth0 for authentication. The API had to communicate with Box to store and update files. RabbitMQ was used to offload batch processing.
