Worked for two years with a client—from the online advertising industry—on a big application with large pieces of business logic on the front-end. Dived deeper into Angular.js and wrote many components with unit tests. I wrote some E2E tests with the QA team. Established a scalable and modular architecture for CSS, refactored the styles, developed a Style Guide with visual patterns and researched about visual style testing. Learned more about Scrum and distributed teamwork. Also, worked with another client—from the security industry—building a UI in React for managing security policies.
