Certn - Workday Integration
About the project
Certn is an app that wants to ease the process of background checks for criminal records, education, employment verification, credit reports, etc.
On Workday I had to work with their client, Loblaws, to integrate Certn with their Workday instance. I quickly realized that their Workday implementation was not standard, so I had to modify multiple open-source SOAP projects (including python-zeep) to work with their setup.
We had 6 months to finish the project and I was able to finish it in only 3 months, which allowed us to make changes, improve the security and work on client changes that came up almost at the end of the project.
This project led to Certn closing a multi-million dollars a year contract with Loblaws.
- Django REST Framework
- OpenSource development
What did I work on?
- Worked with Loblaws to integrate Certn with their Workday integration.
- Refactored an old implementation they had for Workday, which didn’t work for the latest Workday implementation.
- Developed multiple jobs to pull data from Workday, convert it to what Certn needs and then process it on their main application.
