🏘️ About the Organization and Job Details

The Organization 

Founded in 2006, One Acre Fund supplies 1 million smallholder farmers with the agricultural services they need to make their farms vastly more productive. Our 8,000+ team is drawn from diverse backgrounds and professions. With operations across six core countries in Africa, we make farmers more prosperous by providing quality farm supplies on credit, delivered within walking distance of farmers’ homes, and agricultural training to improve harvests. On average, the farmers we serve harvest 50 percent more food after working with One Acre Fund.
To learn more about our work, take a look at our Why Work Here blog for more information.
The biggest responsibility of the Systems Division (or operations team) is to ensure that everything is in place to deliver inputs (seed, fertilizer, solar, phones) to farmers 2 times per year. This includes (1) ordering inputs ahead of the season, (2) receiving and ensuring they meet requirements, (3) setting up our data and documentation for the season, (4) getting these inputs to farmers and back to our warehouses, (5) responding to client concerns through our hotline, and (6) conducting reconciliation and fraud investigations after each season. As the Rwanda program grows, the Systems Division is also increasing our support to new programs in Rwanda that operate differently.

  • You will be reporting to the Head of Operations for Rwanda (we refer to this as “Systems Lead”). You will work closely with her on a range of projects to further the goals of the team. These exact responsibilities will change over time depending on the needs.
  • You will initially begin with no management responsibilities. However, you will take on at least 1 and up to 4 direct reports over time, based on the department needs and your interests.
