Since starting in Rwanda in 2007, our operations have grown rapidly to now serving close to 300,000 clients.
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.
The Product Manager will lead the research and development of technology solutions to improve our impact and operating efficiency. As an example, we are increasingly interested in harnessing the power of mobile technology to better and more efficiently serve our farm families. With a distributed team of several thousand staff, and more than 800,000 clients, mobile technology not only has the potential to help drive more impact to huge numbers of rural farm families, but to make our operations more efficient and data-driven. In order to innovate on how technology can improve service delivery, we need an exceptional individual to lead on this work stream and build a strong support team. Example technology applications might include:
