Projects

Participated in a series of projects both personal and work-related using various tools like Python, Flask, Google Cloud Platform, AWS, Terraform, etc.

CSV Bulk Email - PHP application, that loops through a CSV file and reads name, salutation and email address of recipients and uses the PHP Mailer library to send emails, based on a template taken from either a txt or an HTML file.
Spend&Savings - An application developed in VBA that takes multiple files as input and generates the monthly spend and savings report for use in the procurement department. By automating tasks it managed to drastically reduce the time for the realization of the report from days to hours. Developed for a large pharmaceutical company.
Procurement BidForm - An interactive form used in the supplier acquisition process that is used to motivate the choice. It takes in data from multiple sources in order to generate the form and it also makes computations to generate the qualitative and quantitative indicators taken into consideration when choosing to award the tender to a certain supplier. The document is then exported to .pdf to be archived. It was developed in VBA for a large pharmaceutical company.
Report Centralizer - Application realized in VBA that centralizes, inside a table, the result of all the reports submitted by the field reps (the reports are not in tabular form). It asks the user to choose a folder on the local disk and then it extracts all the requested data from the reports inside it, storing them in the table template, for further analysis. Developed for an automotive company.
GDPR Data Entry - Managed a team of 8 persons that recorded information from scanned pdf documents to tabular form, for the purpose of analysis. In the process, I developed various VBA based programs that help identify and remove duplicates and also identify some errors in the submitted information. Project realized for a large pharmaceutical company.
Regional Business Plan Refactoring - Implemented various changes requested by the client in a VBA application used for administration and monitoring of the regional sales business plan. Project realized for a large pharmaceutical company.
Duplicate Remover - An app realized in Python with Pandas and difflib, ran in Jupyter Notebook. After the rules on considering two records as duplicates are established it takes a CSV file as input and checks the content. Using a string matching technique implemented with SequenceMatcher it evaluates the records and marks those found as duplicates. Project realized for a large pharmaceutical company.
Spend&Savings ML - Refactoring in Python with Pandas and Sci-Kit Learn, of the Spend&Savings reporting tool, previously realized in VBA. The most laborious part of the process was reimplemented using the KNN machine learning technique for classification, based on categorical variables. Project realized for a large pharmaceutical company.
Jira Ticket Report Updater - An application developed in VBA that scans the rows of the report generated the previous day, it isolates the link to the Jira ticket present in one of the columns and then accesses it in Internet Explorer (using a web crawling library for VBA) in order to extract information relative to the actual status of that particular ticket. It records all extracted data to a new column in the initial table. Developed for a company that provides services to the pharma industry.
Enrollment Validator - Project with Python using the libraries Pandas, simple_salesforce, fuzzywuzzy, selenium, sqlite3, and yagmail. It accesses a proprietary website of the client and downloads an updated report of the new user sign up requests. It then accesses, via REST, the client's Veeva (SalesForce) account and, using the information in the previously downloaded file and applying a series of string matching techniques (trying to also avoid eventual typos of the users) it tries to determine if the new users are already registered. For the users found to already be registered in the Veeva system, a series of validation procedures are run, in accordance with rules provided by the client. The resulted records are divided by provenience system and saved to files that are then sent by email. The final result is also recorded to an SQLite database. The precision of the matching procedure is around 70-80% which in this case is very good. The software is installed and runs on a VM instance, on GCP, on Windows 2019 Server. Developed for a large pharmaceutical company
Notary Fee Calculator - Excel + VBA app that helps notary offices to quickly compute the fees for their services, in accordance to guidelines by The National Union of Notaries Public of Romania, and also have a detailed view of the various components of those fees.
Web Scraping - Created web crawlers that extract hotel information from various aggregators/hotel operators webistes.
Business Services Platform - Built a platform, on top of a Google Compute Engine instance, that hosts various tools for providing data related services to clients in the pharma industry. Developed for an IT consulting company.
Room Prices App - Cloud-native, multi-instance web application that collects hotel room prices that meet certain criteria and displays them, in an aggregated form, on the main page of the app. It was realized in Python with Flask, PostgreSQL and it uses two AWS EC2 instances for the collector apps, an AWS S3 bucket for storage, and two Google Compute Engine instances for the front-end and database.
Territory Assignment Tool - In the world of pharmaceutical sales, the representatives of the company are assigned each to a territory inside which they carry out their activity. Given that the variables in this world are ever changing (medics move away, reps resign, etc.) the company finds it hard to keep track and always have a clear image of what is going on with their sales force. I helped develop and implement an application that extracts information from the client's information systems (via REST API) and updates the assignment of the reps to their respective territories. It is developed in Python with Flask, Pandas and simple_salesforce, HTML, CSS, JS, Bootstrap, can run both locally or on a server and it comes with a GUI with control panel. This application is strongly integrated with Windows OS, making use of its API to interact with various processes. Developed for a pharmaceutical company. Developed for a large pharmaceutical company
Event Tool - An application that helps to create a report of medics that represent further commercial interest, and enriching it with extra information, looking at all the participants at the events organized by the client. It does so by connecting via REST to Salesforce via, and other systems for the extraction of information and processing everything in Python. This software is strongly integrated with the Windows OS, making use of ita API to generate PDF files from the output files. Developed for a pharmaceutical company. Developed for a large pharmaceutical company
Scalable App Infrastructure - Terrafrom project that deploys e-commerce applications, such as Wordpress or Prestashop, inside a scalable architecture on Digitalocean, using an auto-scalable Kubernetes cluster with a load balancer and volumes for the persistance of the application and database files, all inside a VPC created purposefully for the deployment.
