Simply Wall St

Based on a web application built with React and TypeScript, delivered a mobile application by wrapping the application in a web view and exposing native SDKs to the JavaScript runtime.

While doing so, also enabled the web application to be used as a Progressive Web App (PWA), thus strengthening the mobile presence of the company while helping users access the product more easily.

We were quite impressed by Sung’s diligence and attention to detail throughout the project. He gave us very accurate and honest timelines throughout and completed them all on time, if not before they were due. Even when faced with teething problems, Sung was incredibly resourceful in troubleshooting and working around any technical blocking issues.

We will definitely keep Sung in mind for any future projects where we need fast, consistent and high quality outside help.
