Web Engineer: Jan 2017 to Oct 2017

Associate Web Engineer: Jul 2016 to Dec 2016

Being part of the web engineering team, I contributed to the web application front-end and server-side web development, built on a Javascript stack (NodeJS & React/Redux). The workflow at Saltside involves taking a feature from design, to development, through testing and then deployment, where it impacts millions of users across the four markets - Bikroy.com, ikman.lk and Tonaton.com

Some features and projects that I worked on here are:

  • Converting all listing pages to Google AMP pages
  • The Employer Dashboard. Employers using our sites had a tough time dealing with candidate applications. My team and I built a seamless experience for employers to view potential candidates, filter through the applications and also to shortlist candidates.
  • Automating the listing fees process for our sales teams
  • Improvements to the Buy Now feature that made using it a breeze both for end-users and for our internal sales teams.
