Back End Development for Online Platform Connecting Brands and Creators

The H Hub is a platform that allows Instagram influencers (people that have a big amount of followers) gather in one place. We provided the tools necessary to unite users in groups, chat, exchange advice, grow the number of their followers, check their statistics and communicate in different ways. The platform enables not only to create a strong network but also to initiate business ties.

Our goal

The goal was to build a platform enabling users to get seamless experience and improve their performance on Instagram. Our team was tasked with creating a platform with the vibrant and sleek interface.


The main challenge on this project was to create the procedure of fetching the photos to receive feedback from the audience. Our team came up with a statistical formula that automatically generated a list of photos to be evaluated on the basis of a number of parameters and, eventually, this logic was put into code.



We were engaged to help with building three modules for the platform. Our team of highly experienced Java engineers worked on Collaborate module, Crit corner and Internal currency.

Collaborate module is a tab that enables creators to post shoots and events and invite other likeminded people near them. This feature allows creators to connect with each other and build a useful network.

Crit corner is a section where creators can get a feedback on their work. There are two options, either receive criticism on own work or evaluate photos of other users. The evaluation is performed based on three criterion:
  • • Colour
  • • Composition
  • • Subject

Internal currency the "H Coin" is the internal money system that allows users to earn "coins" and buy branded items  - this module is currently under development.

Top three features are:

1. One of the most significant asset of the system is that it gives creators (Instagram influencers/photographers/models) tools to connect with other passionate creators. For example, if you are a photographer or videographer or a makeup artist you can find a model for your photoshoot or workshop in a matter of second. What is more, the search allows to filter candidates with desirable characteristics and according to their popularity on Instagram.

2. Also, members of the platform can create public/private events or photoshoots and invite other creators to attend them. The same works in opposite direction: members can search the events they would like to attend.

3. Another feature is the possibility to give and receive feedback from other influencers about the photos one posts.The feedback presupposes evaluation of colour, composition and subject of the photo. The platform also allows to exchange messages.
