Ruby on Rails Developer for SB-sponsored App Givdo

Cause Areas


Thu Dec 01, 2016 - Sat Apr 01, 2017


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


An app that Simply the Basics sponsors is looking for a developer (students welcome) to hop onto the team for a few weeks to help finish an (almost complete!) app and get launch it to beta. The app being built is a gaming app that allows users to select a nonprofits from a list of nonprofits and play trivia in different categories against friends to win points that turn into monetary donations for the chosen nonprofit.

Skills preferred:

-Ruby on Rails (backend logic for selecting trivia categories, selecting opponents to play against, notifications from opponents, re: new friends on the app, & added categories).

-Ionic, frontend (finishing notifications page, help build categories page)

-Heroku/database management/backend production (keeps track of points won for each nonprofit, users, categories, and questions).

-TestFlight, beta app management

-Facebook API, OAuth and pulling information from user and nonprofit pages.
