Founded in 2006, One Acre Fund supplies smallholder farmers with the agricultural services they need to make their farms vastly more productive. We provide quality farm supplies on credit, delivered within walking distance of farmers’ homes, and agricultural trainings to improve harvests. We measure our success by our ability to make farmers more prosperous: On average, farmers harvest 50 percent more food after working with One Acre Fund.
We are growing quickly. We currently serve more than 800,000 farm families in Eastern and Southern Africa, with more than 7,500 full-time staff, and we aim to serve 1 million farm families by 2020.
One Acre Fund has several applications implemented in a SQL server merge replicated architecture using web synchronization to a hosted server. There are nearly 100 locations in 8 different countries, which communicate with our main production server through merge replication. In addition, we are using transactional replication to other hosted servers for various database loads.
As the number of locations and countries grows over time, we are seeking an exceptional professional to serve as SQL Server Developer/Administrator who can build and improve on our current database architecture, as well as plan ahead for future scaling. In addition, the SQL Server Administrator will assist with trainings when One Acre Fund expands to new countries.
