Product Engineer

Collegedunia

I was associated with Collegedunia since day one and have had an awesome time building the product from scratch. The site had over 100k visitors everyday and ranked 2000 in India by Alexa.com.  

Among others features I contributed a lot in implementing Solr Search and Redis on the site. Solr and Redis powered the website global search and the Listing and product page. By moving the entire Listing Module from Mysql to Solr, load on server reduced by 30 times and 300% faster results.

I had handled the end to end development of the web services and notification system for the  Collegedunia app (v1.0). I was involved in the development of two custom CMS for the product. One of these was written in Core Php and the other in Laravel. I worked on these two CMS working in a team of two. 

The tech stack was mainly PHP(Laravel and in-house custom framework), Mysql, Redis, Solr Search.
