Healthcare Company

Description: 

I was working with this YC-funded startup as a senior software engineer where I had an opportunity to work with the company's global team consisting of 15+ developers where we were building a company product for healthcare staffing that was being used by thousands of healthcare professionals and dozens of facilities in the USA. My primary role was to work on product enhancement and new feature builds along with other developers.  

 

When the Covid pandemic was at its peak in the USA there were very high demands of the nurses and healthcare staff, so we have to make our company product capable to accomplish this challenge we were given a short deadline where we have to scale our product, redesign our user interface and make improvement and advancements in our application so we can attract more and more healthcare professional and get new staffing contracts from the healthcare facilities. I was involved in building different features including shifts management, healthcare professionals locating and assigning algorithms, and other time and payment-related modules. 

 

We as a team worked day and night to accomplish the task and, in the end, we were able to scale our product and redesign our UI as a result, we were able to attract thousands of healthcare professionals and dozens of healthcare facilities, and that company is now unicorn and is now one of the biggest companies in their domain in the USA.

Recruitment Platform Project
January 2018 - January 2020

Description: 

I started working with them as a software engineer but later I was promoted to Senior Software Engineer. Our team consists of 10+ people and my primary role is to work on different features and modules on the backend and front-end side and also on their mobile apps. 

 

We were building a complete recruitment platform where we can make the hiring, onboarding, and contract management process smooth and fast. We build different things like a resume analyzer that analyzes the person's resume with the market and gives him insight, improvements, and future career paths as well. We scraped data for different industries and have a very large data set of job postings and lookups needed for the portal. We built a web portal for the recruiter where they can find candidates using different filters and criteria. Candidates can create their profiles and let the recruiters find them. Once there is a matched recruiter can shortlist those and can send them an opportunity for the discussion. Candidates can accept or reject those opportunities. Once the opportunity is accepted, the recruiter can create a contract on negotiated terms. After this, there comes the onboarding process and we have the capabilities to manage those. Then there is time tracking and weekly reports submission. We built the system to manage these as well. We build the capability so any company can create a copy of the system and make it live with just a few clicks within 2 minutes, for example, kfc.prodoo.com, if that company wants to use a separate system for their resource hiring.  

 

This portal is now live in Denmark and Pakistan and is being used by thousands of job seekers and dozens of companies including some renowned companies. It solved the complex hiring and onboarding process and enabled the job seeker to find the right opportunity.
