I specialize in building PHP apps (Laravel & Symfony)

Hey, I’m Alexander Makhaev. I’ve been a freelance software developer for 15+ years.

I worked with some of the biggest names in their niches including:

  • Xoopit, e-mail startup (acquired by Yahoo for $20 million)
  • RunwaySale, biggest South African online fashion retailer (500+ high-end brands)
  • Summer Cart, best platform for e-commerce in Bulgaria (won the first prize for Software Development of Forbes Magazine, 3000+ online stores are using it)

I specialise in building PHP applications (Laravel & Symfony):

  • 2016: I made the Summer Cart platform easy to extend by external plugins such as the Retargeting.biz plugin (it increases online shop revenue up to 100% helping the customers get the products they really want to buy) by building REST API with documentation and Open Source PHP client
  • 2017: I pushed PungoCash cryptocurrencies exchange service’s stability to the next level by creating an automated testing environment with 100+ tests that runs automatically for every staging deployment and reports any errors
  • 2018: I automated the process of adding new brands and stocks for RunwaySale by making a system that recognizes 30+ file formats for different buyers with a drag & drop interface to match the input data with the internal warehouse management system's data structures
