18Techs

July 2017 - June 2018

Got to work with an extremely talented team of full-stack developers which included collaborators from Costa Rica, Iran, and U.S.A.

Researched and architected a cross-platform POS solution for Desktop, Web, and Mobile (iOS) which involved using Electron, React.js, and React Native.

I had to set coding standards, document development processes for easy induction of talent into team, as well as guiding collaborators through stakeholder meetings and planning sessions.

At 18Techs we developed both closed-source and open-source solutions using:

  • React.js
  • Electron
  • React Native
  • Lerna.js
  • CouchDB
  • PouchDB
  • GraphQL
  • Webpack
  • Node.js

Working with Jean, although in different countries, was a great experience. We could all lean on him for technical help with anything we needed, and he'd get it done every time. He has an impressive depth of technical knowledge, and if we were going down the wrong path, wasn't afraid to let us know, and would always provide alternative solutions that were better than what we asked for.

I hope to have a chance to work with him again someday soon!
