Senior Backend Developer
Our client is a financial startup for educational organizations whose mission is to reduce transaction costs, track financial transactions in real-time, and eliminate bureaucracy from the financial education system.
The client's financial and customer billing system was developed using .Net technology, which caused multiple problems, including extremely slow transaction processing and the impossibility to support high system loads.
It became apparent to the customer that the product should undergo significant changes to enable system scalability.
The decision was made to switch from .Net technology to Node.js technology.
