Python Back-End Developer.
  • Code optimization for better scalability: benchmarking the current solution and finding ways to reduce the time spent in handling HTTP requests.

  • Code refactoring and server migration from Heroku to Amazon virtual machines: redesign of the entire back-end architecture.
  • Development of solutions to handle statistics and TCP messages, and replacement of the external solutions to reduce costs: PubHub was used to handle communication over TCP between server and clients, while New Relic was used to handle statistics.
