Improve our program quality and help quadruple our farmer impact in the next five years.

 

Experience Requirements

Job Responsibilities

One Acre Fund is growing quickly, and we plan to at least triple our farmer impact in the next five years. This offers Program Associates a powerful career opportunity: learn from a successful field operation, contribute to aggressive growth, and make improvements to our program.

We are looking for Program Associates for a variety of teams within One Acre Fund, including:

Operations:

Our country operation teams face the classic management challenge: how to keep a large country operation growing at 30-60% per year while also making improvements to our operating model. Program Associates learn from our organization’s deep knowledge on scaling rural field programs; then, they are challenged to find new ways to stretch, grow faster, and increase our quality of service.

Field operations staff focus on farmer-facing services. Staff help to develop and manage performance of 500-3,000 field staff. Some roles are more general; others specialize in important moments like new site expansion, enrollment, and repayment.
Support operations staff create the infrastructure for growth. These teams might operate and improve our deliveries to thousands of drop sites; enable mobile money integration in a country; or improve the flow of tens of millions of SMS and phone calls with farmers.

Skills

Language: English required in all locations. French required for Burundi placement. Other notable and useful languages are Swahili, Kinyarwanda, Kirundi, Chichewa, Amharic.
