PROPERTY CONNECT - LIVE OFFER PLATFORM

Members of our team helped the founder of Property Connect take his original concept and wireframes and launch an MVP for the US market in under 3 months. The product was a market place platform designed to provide transparency in the rental application process, such that property managers and prospective tenants could agree the preferred terms with the landlord.

Subsequently, the business expanded into additional international markets, including Australia and the UAE and broadened the product offering to include online property auctions.

The platform was built upon Scala and React with a microservices architecture and hosted on AWS. Various 3rd party API integrations, including - domain.com.au, equifax.com.au, google.com, propertymonitor.ae, Stripe, Docusign and Mandrill to name a few.

The team were responsible for product design, architecture, growth hacking, social media integrations, database design as well as the UI / UX.

REPUBLIC WEALTH MANAGEMENT - A ROBO ADVICE PLATFORM

The Founder of the business had recently lost his CTO, and with him his entire engineering capability. Members of the team were called in as part of a capital raise to help architect, build and launch the MVP, ready to accept the first customers.

The platform was a ROBO advice platform, but designed to be offered direct to consumers and to channel partners or as a complete white label service. The platform had to handle AML/KYC requirements, risk profiling engines as well as integrate into a custom designed dashboard, which brought together several back end banking and custodial systems to provide online reporting and account management.

The architecture was microservices based, built in Scala and Node.js and hosted on AWS. Integrations included finametrica, temenos, bloomberg, class, macquarie bank, iress and openmarkets.
