Hi, I'm Clayton Siby a professional Full-Stack Software Developer focussing mostly on web application development, maintenance, and implementation of the high-quality resolution to disparate systems. Worked remotely on a variety of open-source collaborative projects with professional Software Engineers around the world. Developed professional experience in developing user-friendly web applications using modern technologies that include Javascript, React, Ruby and Ruby-on-Rails just to mention a few. Having gone through a diverse community of Software Engineers provided at Microverse, an online program training developers around the world in an interactive pair-programming setting, I have completely immersed myself in remote development, building everything from landing pages to Rails APIs.

Rosebank, South Africa
Software Engineer
I integrated the ChatGPT API to develop live chatbots for banks and private entities in South Africa and the United States, including Absa, Makro, Game, and Dr. Oetker. I implemented features to generate real-time usage metrics for clients, products, and audiences. Additionally, I developed, tested, and deployed a scheduling system that allows clients to easily send bulk Highly Structured WhatsApp Messages.
Using a custom-built workflow builder and Figma, I designed and implemented the chatbot user experience, integrating it with ChatGPT to enable more intelligent customer interactions and significantly increase monthly active users (MAUs). I provided comprehensive support for a ChatGPT-based chatbot system, enhancing human-like interactions and boosting subscriber engagement.
As a lead engineer on projects for Absa, Game, Makro, and Coach Vici, I ensured that all product requirements were clear to the engineering team, Head of Engineering, and our Product Owner. I designed and configured our Docker services with an optimal architecture for several internal products, improved our CI/CD pipelines, and implemented Sentry auto-builds and testing.
I also implemented migration scripts to cater to existing client records whenever we rolled out a new API version release. I developed RESTful APIs, documented every endpoint within Swagger YAML files, and performed extensive testing with Postman. I deployed well-architected, thoroughly tested systems for internal applications, enhancing user experience. For example, I integrated manual and automated archiving for Highly Structured WhatsApp Messages with BigQuery for efficient backups and space optimisation on our central database.
Throughout my work, I followed agile methodologies, including two-week sprints and complexity-based ticket pointer allocation.

I developed and maintained features for an existing product to meet client requirements and ensure customer satisfaction. I managed background processes that supported a large customer base utilizing live stream data for an event hosting and ticketing platform. Additionally, I developed email services and integrated them with Sendgrid for an e-commerce web application, streamlining the notification process for sales, product updates, and campaign dispatches.
I designed and developed a sleek, intuitive interface for an e-commerce application, which reduced customer support requests for our client. I integrated email services and ticket sales using Redis and Sidekiq to enhance the user experience on the front end, employing threads to handle background processes for seamless and optimal performance.
I transformed customer feature and business requirements from ideas and designs into high-quality, well-tested software products. I also integrated real-time data analysis systems with an automation tool, improving efficiency in customer support and real-time data analytics.
Throughout my work, I operated in an agile environment, utilizing both Scrum and Kanban methodologies, and participated in related ceremonies such as stand-ups, sprint planning, and grooming sessions.
