Responsible for product ideation and design, feature design, and technical development. Worked with the CEO on the business plan creation and seed fundraising. Designed and created all marketing and fundraising collateral — pitch decks, online ads, and material for tradeshows. Executed pre-sales demos for investors and practices.
The marketplace had a Ruby on Rails backend plus API. The provider dashboard was also on RoR and the mobile app was written in React Native resulting in both iOS and Android versions.
