Managed team for Niluk

The Client: Niluk

Niluk is a startup company from the Netherlands. It has built an app to address the issue of loneliness and social isolation. The motto: “It’s not what you have in life, but who“.

The app is engineered to keep you in this alternate universe as short as possible. This is in contrast to other networks which are designed to keep us addicted and on our phones. This unique platform’s key features include no algorithms. But it gives you the option to pre-filter connections based on your own common interests and proximity.

Niluk made a lightweight UX to connect users to new members of their local community. And it works whether they are at home or in a new country. So everyone can reclaim their right to experience a feeling of belonging no matter where they are in the world.

The Challenge for Niluk

Niluk founder Elena Köstler was in the middle of a project when her lead developer left the company. So she turned to Tunga to take over the project. And to bring it to a good end within scope and deadline.

The Solution

Tunga mobilized a truly pan-African managed services team for Niluk. The team consisted of a Ugandan project manager in the person of Ronald Nyakahuma, and 3 developers from Nigeria and Egypt. The app works for both iOS and Android, using React Native. Ronald coordinated the work and managed the developer team on behalf of the client.

Tunga has been working on the development of the Niluk app since the beginning of this year. Niluk is a mobile app to combat loneliness. Elena Köstler, the founder of Niluk, explains.
