As the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) on the project, I was responsible for a range of tasks that helped ensure the success of the project. My responsibilities included creating and scoping tickets to ensure that all aspects of the project were covered and that we stayed on track with our goals. Additionally, I was tasked with leading a small team, which included delegating tasks, providing guidance and support, and overseeing the team's progress to ensure that we met our milestones on time.
In addition to these leadership duties, I also performed some minor UI/UX design work, which involved collaborating with our designers to develop and refine the user interface and experience. However, my primary responsibility was handling frontend development, which involved writing, testing, and debugging code to create a seamless and functional frontend for the platform.
