Hello, I am Ivaylo Pashov
Full Stack Software Developer

I am a jack of all trades software developer. I have a mainly .NET and Ruby on Rails background but do also lots of JS. Currently i am contracting. I build ecommerce solutions on Salesforce commerce cloud (SFCC), previously Demandware. I also have interest in IoT (even built a commercial side project) and machine learning. Another topic that interests me is trading, finance and real estate. I manage my own stock and P2P lending portfolios. I also recently bought a piece of land in Sofia and plan to develop real estate if everything goes well. In my spare time i mainly do sports (check out my Strava), go hiking, visit meetups or read (check out my Goodreads profile).

  • Supplier recognition for Receipt Bank
    Worldwide

    Receipt Bank is a company that aims to make life easier for both bookkeepers and accountants. We automate manual inputting by receipt recognition and data extraction. We provide various methods of submition too. Some of them include taking a picture of the receipt with a mobile app or sending pdfs to an email. Then we also provide integrations with third party accounting software with Xero being the biggest. Truly amazing company, product and spirit. My role is mainly around supplier recognition. Won't go into detail but to put it shortly we try to automatically recognize who the company is on the receipt and i don't mean just name as string but what the real entity is. This is a very hard task and i don't believe anyone can solve it 100%, but we are progressing very well. I have leading role in that effort. The technological stack is mainly Ruby/Rails, RabbitMQ, ElasticSearch.

  • Mobile application for Solid 55
    Worldwide

    Solid 55 is a company that manufactures and sells entrance doors. They also invest heavily in technology so that you can communicate with your door. For example, you can remotely lock/unlock your door, receive notifications who entered etc. Basically, you can command the electronic locks on the door. This happens by calling or SMS. The door has a sim card in it and that's the interface to accept commands. But writing sms and remembering commands is as bad UX as it gets, so they decided to do a mobile app for that. It is a more user friendly wrapper for the underlying sms/call thing. I decided to go the cross platform way with IONIC framework as i have no experience in mobile and the app has to be available for iOS and Android. Also, the app is simple enough not to require some fine control over native features. The only native API that it uses are call and sms but plugins are available for that with simple enough interface. You can check it out, it is called Solid Mobile Key and is available on the App Store for now and soon on Google Play.

  • Raspberry Pi application for Solid 55
    Worldwide

    Solid 55 is a company that manufactures and sells entrance doors. They also invest heavily in technology so that you can communicate with your door. For example, you can remotely lock/unlock your door, receive notifications who entered etc. Basically, you can command the electronic locks on the door. In order to set your door up, you have to do some admin work at the beginning like who can unlock, who has access, turn the alarm on/off etc. This was a bit tedious as the interface is SMS (the door has a sim card in it and a microcontroller). So they came up with the great idea to built in a Raspberry Pi with a touch display on the inner side so that users have a nice UI to administrate the door. What is more, you can watch on the screen who is in front as the spy is a digital camera. So they hired me to build it. I coded the whole thing in Python and used a library for the UI called KivyPie. The whole app consists of a server that listens on the serial port for messages from the microcontroller and passes them to the client and a client that handles user interactions. They communicate with Twisted which is a networking event-driven engine for Python.

  • Web application for QCCU (Queensland Credit Union)
    Brisbaine, Australia

    QCCU is an Australian credit union and the project was in the domain of payments. The company wanted to offer a new service where they pay bills for you and the system was meant to utilize that. The project was quite big and complex. My role in the project was as a C# + front-end developer. We used technologies mainly in the MS stack - C#/.NET, Windows services, WCF services, Web API, OData, SQL server, MSMQ etc. on the backend and Angular 1.3 on the front-end. The project was challenging because of the complexity and communication (there is a 9 hour difference with Australia)

  • Admin + Customer portal for GGHT (Golden Gates Housing Trust)
    Warrington, UK

    GGHT had a working portal before which was quite outdated. So our task was to make a whole new portal from the ground up and add some functionality. The portal was aimed to help GGHT employees manage the existing properties and customers and also to help their customers file requests for repairs, manage their bills, provide feedback etc. I worked as a full-stack dev on that project. The portal was implemented using C#/.NET, WCF services, Web API on the back end + knockout, jQuery, Angular, Bootstrap on the front end. Interesting aspect of the portal was that we had to implement a Single Sign On solution used by 3 apps.

Tech Blog

This blog is dedicated to my tech interests. I share everything that exites me from the world of technology, that being administration, development or IoT.

Finance (Contrarian) Blog

This blog is dedicated to my interest in finance, but not finance as studied in books. If you don't like central banks and think that there is something wrong with wealth disparity in the world, if you like bitcoin and the like, if you think that individuals should be financially empowered, that's the place to go.
