Social Analytics Platform. The main goal of the Social Analytics Platform is to provide relevant information to telecom companies about their customers (including predicted age group, gender etc.) as well as analytical tools for marketing personnel to conduct marketing campaigns.
This was a new product in the company and my task was to act as a lead developer and shape processes and development culture of a team of 6 data engineers in collaboration with 3 data scientists.
The scope of the project included development of data pipelines and implementation of predictive models on Hadoop stack (Cloudera, HDFS, Map Reduce, Apache Pig, Oozie, Sqoop, Flume, Hive), back end and UI applications as well (Java 8, Spring, Hibernate, PostrgreSQL).
The project had high quality standards via consistent application of best practices - modularity, continuous integration,unit/integration/functional/end-to-end testing.
We implemented several pilot integrations for various customers. As a result we got a first commercial purchase of the product from a major telecom company (over 10M customers).

Among my contributions was migrating to a more modern tech stack (SVN to Mercurial, Ant to Maven, introduced Spring).
In 2013 I started a new project as a team lead of 3 developers. The project's goal was to predict optimal schedules for ATMs encashment to cut down significantly banks' maintenance costs. In a year we turned a complex mathematical model in a working software system and proved the economical value for the first customer.
