Needed: Application Developer (volunteer)
Organization: GroceryGuru
Location: Work is remote/virtual with preference that the person lives in Nova Scotia, ideally in or close to HRM/Halifax, Nova Scotia

GroceryGuru believes in supporting the individuals in our community. We believe that we can leverage available technology to help people, make their lives a bit easier to manage and reduce their burden. Our current project involves the creation of an app to help people save money on groceries. Users will use the app to optimize how much money they spend on groceries, the time they spend, and their store choice. The goal is to relieve some of the pressure that our community members are feeling when it comes to managing the many pressures of our time.

The app will also support our small local businesses that sell grocery items, "putting them on the map", so to speak.

GroceryGuru is seeking a volunteer application developer to create this app. Experience in data collection, knowing how to integrate with store databases or APIs, web scraping, etc. is required.

Goals for Individuals:

  • Save money. Let the app figure out where to buy your groceries for the lowest cost.
  • Reduce or eliminate the time you spend searching through fliers for coupons, sales, deals.
  • Easily see your options that are optimized based on cost and time, avoiding overspending or spending unecessary time on grocery shopping.
  • Find new stores in your area that sell the items you need.

Goals for Small Business Owners:

  • Increase your visibility and clientele.
  • Showcase your products and prices.
  • Participate in the competitive market.

Goal for the Grocery Industry:

  • Create competition to keep grocery prices lower.
  • Increase awareness and visibility of small businesses that sell grocery items.

How to apply:

Email with your name, contact information, general location, level of interest and availability.

Include your related app development experience and your specific role in developing them.

Include your thoughts on volunteering, helping individuals in your community, and your volunteer involvement or experience.
