During 2010 I worked mostly on this project. J.M.E., the web designer, and I worked with Iker Marcaide to develop the first version of the international money transfer web application, which was launched around June, just in time to win the "HiT Barcelona global technological innovation summit".
As clients started requesting transfers we refined the user interface until October, moment at which the result was compelling enough for investors to pour into the project its first million dollar funding.
Until this point the service was a generic person-to-person money transfer service. With the new investment and subsequent hiring of the first group of employees, the business focus specialized on tuition payments, and a new application was started with a very different workflow.
This initial web application was developed using the Zend Framework.
It was very exciting to participate in this project and contribute to its early success!
