Description

Our mission is to create human-centered services. We’re a coalition of digital gov alums who partner with governments and social impact organizations to design and build digital services that improve people’s lives. We help our partners build the capacity to transform how they deliver services now and in the future.


We’re deliberate about the projects we take on. We make sure that all members of the Bloom team work on projects that are collaborative, interesting, and impactful.

The Project

We are looking for an engineer to work on a cross-functional team — that includes our partners — to understand, document, and reform organ donation. We’re partnering with a nonprofit organization to help research and design how we might get more patients access to transplants through supply chain mapping, policy change, and technology improvements.

Despite overwhelming national support for organ donation, 33 Americans die every day waiting for an organ transplant, or are removed from the waiting list for becoming too sick to receive the transplant. As the New York Times Editorial Board wrote, an “astounding lack of accountability and oversight in the nation’s creaking, monopolistic organ transplant system is allowing hundreds of thousands of potential organ donations to fall through the cracks.”

We’re partnering with a nonprofit organization to run a discovery sprint to help research and design how we might dramatically improve outcomes through supply chain mapping, policy change, and technology improvements.
