Friends of mine in Switzerland wanted to create an online marketplace for handmade stuff.
At first, an MVP based on Magento 2, with a custom-made React.js frontend was built, using Node.js as middleware.
Later on, as maintenance costs were too high for the startup, we built a WooCommerce version of the store, which is still up and running.
The project is ongoing, and based on Lean Startup Principles.
Project Management was initially based on SCRUM, now Kanban.
The client asked us to port their current website to Magento and improve the revenue of their existing online store.
As the tech lead, I led the development of the client's new website, writing custom modules and assigning work to other developers. We managed to deliver the work in record time: within only a month we delivered the first release which went live soon after.
After the site went live, I used New Relic, Google Analytics, NPS and latest market research from Baymand Institute to create a 12 month roadmap of improvements that will boost conversion rate, average cart value, customer loyalty, and generally, online user experience with the brand.
I then created user stories and milestones, and organized work in 3-week sprints. I led daily standups, retrospectives and backlog grooming, decided priorities between bug fixes, improvements and new features and kept the client up to date with results by delivering monthly reports.
As an example, one of the major milestones was redesigning the checkout experience. Our work increased the checkout conversion rate by 12%. After the implementation of the first roadmap, the client saw significant quarterly revenue growth compared to the same quarter last year.
WellMadeClothes needed a modern Magento website with a powerful API that will allow their many suppliers to update stock levels and manage fulfillment.
I had analyzed the client's business requirements and created a technical specification of about 60 user stories, which I organized into 6 sprints that were delivered within three months. As a tech lead and project manager, I wrote custom PHP and JS code and kept our team focused and the client informed about our progress.
The website now successfully facilitates WMC online retail activities.
I was tasked with finding ways to improve the overall user experience with the brand's online store, with special focus on mobile. I streamlined user experience by making improvements to product page, category page and checkout. I performed A/B tests and analysed Google Analytics data to drive my decisions. I managed the work through 3-week sprints performed by a cross-functional team of backend and frontend developers and designers.
