About the role

We are currently looking for someone with experience in Java for Android and Swift for IOS mobile application development who can help us improve our MVP already available in the App and Google stores.

Our goal is to provide a better user experience with our current mobile app which helps people get informed and supported through living kidney donation.

Ideally, we would like someone who can commit at least 4 hours per week and help us learn skills in managing/maintaining the App. We want to be empowered in understanding this technology, not just outsource the work.


  • 3 years proven experience developing Java for Android and Swift for IOS
  • Experience in training non-developers in the basic art of Java and Swift for maintaining the App
  • Experience in deploying with Google Store and Apple for updating App
  • 5 hours per week working to an agreed timeline.

Ideally, you will also possess one or more of the following:

  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team with regular meetings.
  • Understanding of mobile technologies and platform differences.
  • Working knowledge of Photoshop or other relevant design tools as well as a keen eye for design.

This is an unpaid voluntary role and the work is to be completed remotely. You will be joining us in working towards refreshing the app for a better user experience for people thinking about living kidney donation. This is a global App, currently only produced in English.  

We are not a for profit or not for profit organisation as we have no intent to create this as a business as the App is available for free – donors already give so much to save a life, they should not pay for an App that helps them educate themselves or connect with the donor community

DonorPlus is a no-fee service built around our personal experience in living kidney donation. It provides anyone thinking about donating one of their kidneys to save another person’s life. Often these decisions are made due to someone they know who needs a kidney to live. The emotional stress and uncertainty can be eased by accessing this App and understanding what is involved and has the potential for people to connect to other living donors.

We aim to be the #1 go to, reliable, secure place for donor to donor connections and support. Educating people around the world to realise that living with one kidney is without risk and that people’s lives can be saved by donating your spare kidney. One in 34 people die each day waiting for a kidney – we believe we can change this on global stage through education and this App.

We have a technical document, requirements document and all graphics pre-designed. I have over 20 years IT project management experience which I will be happy to share my foundation skills with you through this journey. The other co-founder has media and communication skills also that may be of value to you from a share/learning perspective.
