Closing date: 18 Oct 2019
ABOUT ONE ACRE FUND
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.
As an organization, we constantly seek to impact more farmers, and the New Country Expansion team is currently preparing for the second year of our Bihar pilot in rural India. This role is part of a small start-up team based out of Motihari in East Champaran district, that strives to transform the lives of Indian farmers by offering end-to-end solutions that are both scalable, and deliver meaningful impact over the next few years.
The efficacy of these interventions is tested by running multiple trials in a year, rigorously measuring their impact, and finding ways to improve their scalability and efficiency over time.
The India Expansion Analyst (IEA) contributes to the design of these interventions and manages all aspects of their execution. Interventions can be stand-alone, like setting up a scalable supply chain for high-quality inputs, or pretty embedded in the work of other teams, like re-imagining the way we offer agricultural trainings to farmers. The IEA will own interventions from start to finish and often start with recruiting a team to get it off the ground. The Expansion Analyst plays a key role in scaling up impactful interventions and establishing a full-country program.
Specific responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
One Acre Fund has deep operational experience running rural field programs at a scale. Analysts benefit from this past experience, quickly building their skill-set through immersion in our operating environment. At the same time, the main role of Analysts is to accelerate growth and to constantly stretch and improve our operations. This presents an excellent career opportunity to both learn from One Acre Fund’s accumulated experience and constantly improve and enable 40%+ program growth per year.
