Luka is an expert Backend Developer with 4+ years of top-level expertise in the provision of Python-based solutions on projects for clients; developing and delivering several large scale backend services for high profile clients efficiently and promptly. He has hands-on mastery in DevOps and the use of cloud-based technologies on projects.
Worked on a customer monitoring application for a live replay system in the broadcasting industry that aggregates custom system metrics with a modular design from the get-go. It is engineered for future expansion to meet industry-specific metrics that need to be monitored and provides an easy access point for the whole system with worldwide distribution from one access point - showing very granular system data and sends notifications/alerts based on customer configurations. Led the development of the backend application and developed the service architecture for the system. The project was tested extensively throughout the development process using the customer's requirements and actual needs as priorities and was deployed with no issues. The Monitoring system was deployed to many high profile clients(10+) with large clusters(some with over 1000+ nodes).
Developed a suite of cloud-based applications intended to provide encrypted tunnels as a pathway of communication between large systems and allow for the secure transmission of sensitive data. This includes a routing service for directing streams from one geographical site over the web to another site, monitoring all cloud traffic and stability, and connecting new clusters to existing ones with easily deployable Debian files for ease of customer use. Co-Led the development of the suite of backend applications and service architecture. Optimized the solution to allow large distributed systems to act more as one shared system flawlessly. The project is in Beta testing with high profile clients.
IntelliApp provides remote access to data analytics, control mechanisms, scheduling of changes of state, and monitoring thresholds of IntelliPlatform integrated hardware systems. Using the IntelliApp, users can sign into their typo accounts and gain access to all the features developed to grant users accessibility and control over their hardware systems. The app grants users access to change metrics and rules that govern decisions made by some of the automated algorithms on the IntelliPlatform system for the signed-in account. Users receive notifications for critical, important, scheduled, as well as low priority events. It removes the need for users to travel to on-site locations to manually monitor or control hardware systems. Led the development of the backend application and service architecture in record time and channelled sensitive information through encrypted tunnels over the cloud to the mobile iOS application. The app was deployed to a few developmental customers for use with their current infrastructure.
