Solution

One of the challenges was to develop a Tinder-like user interface. Our team had to integrate LinkedIn into the application and to develop user onboarding in accordance with the following roles: business founder, investor, corporation. While registering a user should choose a particular role and fill in a suggested form.

 

 

Access to the server API is password protected – a user needs to be authorized to access it. Only authorized users can use the application.

 

 

At all stages of interaction with the program, HTTPS protocol is used, which encrypts communication between the application and the backend.

 

 

Within 3 months IntexSoft specialists developed the backend of the app, the support of Android and iOS platforms, as well as the frontend part.

 

Methodology

The IntexSoft team operated using Scrum methodology with two-week sprints.
