Build a Cross platform (iOS & Android) mobile app utilizing Geolocation and Push Notifications -- 3

Share examples of geolocation-related apps you've worked on.

We are looking for an experienced mobile app and Google maps API developer to continue working on an existing app. The I Love Black People Safe Places app is a cross-platform mobile application deployed on the iOS and Android stores. We need the app's engagement and performance/responsiveness to be improved with the goal of seeing organic growth and user retention. The app should encourage people to share safe places/businesses for Black people and invite their friends to use it (organic growth). We are at the crowdsourcing stage, so the main focus of the app is to get recommendations/shares of Black-friendly places for now.

The app is meant to rapidly scale the number of people signing up to become I Love Black People Members as well as provide and receive Black-friendly/Black-owned business recommendations based on their current and recent geolocations.

The app should send frequent notifications of businesses close by enquiring if they are Black-friendly. The notifications are also a key requirement for this app


The major issues to be fixed:

- Performance issues. Too many renders happening when loading businesses on the map. More investigation on this and beyond need to be made to optimize the app

- load businesses in order of proximity as opposed to categories. Logic on code used to load businesses on the map needs update to reflect this

- ensure all relevant business in relation to business categories get loaded on the map

- User Experience contribution. Developer should have the capacity to sugggest and implement industry standard UX practices as opposed to expecting to be instructed on user experience by us

- Session control needs to be reviewed and improved to ensure users data can be retrieved when they login to different devices


Current tech stack:

- React Native (I'm open to advice on whether this is good moving forward)

- Connects to external FastAPI

- Google Maps API

- React Native Background Geolocation SDK for iOS & Android ([login to view URL])

- Firebase

Download and review the app on iOS and Android to give feedback: [login to view URL]

Communication is super important, I need someone who's fluent in English and able to effectively communicate their work on daily standup

Skills: Mobile App Development, iPhone, Android, Google Maps API, React Native
