Build iOS app from scratch. Fix stability problems of the project. Migrate website to React.js. And later - to build admin app and integrate it with CRM
The team was very honest and transparent throughout the entire process and even invited me to Ukraine to meet the team and work with them in their office. Every member - Oleg, Oleksii, Vadim, Anatolii, and Alex were superstars. They are extremely hard working and great people.

Website crashing with poor performance. The architecture was poorly designed and it caused a slow loading speed, even when there were only a small number of users.
The new backend handles three times more requests per second and cuts the response time from 1+ seconds to 100ms. It can also handle requests from the new mobile app.
Implementation of a photo collage feature for the iOS app using React Native
We used OpenCV to enable pasting 2 photos together. For adding fast-responding zoom and crop features we also engaged native libraries.
Uploading photos is one of the most popular user operations. Users and experts need to be able to show before and after images to demonstrate the results of their beauty techniques. That’s why we implemented a photo collage feature. The usage of React Native in combination with native processing libraries enabled us to integrate this feature without affecting app performance. We also added layout selection with 6 different choices of layout.
