Job Opportunities

Join the REFUNITE Team

REFUNITE is a tech non-profit with the mission to reconnect separated families across the globe.

With 45 million displaced people in the world, there is a pressing need to reconnect the thousands of people that every day lose contact with their family and friends. Historically, many of these never find their missing loved ones, in part due to a lack of access to effective communication tools and databases. REFUNITE has developed an online and mobile platform that empowers people in every part of the world to start the search for missing family - whether they have access to a smart phone or computer or whether they only have a simple mobile phone with no internet access. 

REFUNITE consists of small team in Copenhagen (HQ) and a growing team in Nairobi, Kenya (primary hub for all East African activities). We’re a fast moving group of techies, designers, project managers and writers. We have a lot of fun, despite the serious nature of our work, and strive to end the problem of refugee families not being able to find each other within 5 years. As a non-profit organization the wages are not market leading, but will be negotiated based on individual skills and experiences.
