Project Aim

YSpot Jobs PageYSpot Jobs Page

The YSpot project, developed for YH&H, aims to empower youth by creating a LinkedIn-like platform tailored specifically for young people. The platform simplifies the process for youth to find suitable job opportunities, apply for positions, and take assessments. Companies can post jobs and engage with potential candidates, facilitating a streamlined hiring process. The platform also integrates several AI tools to assist both youth and companies.

My Role

As the Backend Developer and Team Lead for YH&H, I was responsible for designing and implementing the backend infrastructure using Node.js and PostgreSQL. I led the project, ensuring the successful integration of various features, including job posting, assessments, AI tools, and moderation tools. I coordinated with the frontend team to optimize the user experience and ensure seamless functionality. Additionally, I had the pleasure of presenting the platform at Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center (Sheraa) Hub, American University of Sharjah, where I showcased the platform's capabilities and the positive impact it has on connecting youth with job opportunities.
