    Country: Kenya
    Closing date: 25 Mar 2016

    Function: Internal Consulting Team
    Employer: One Acre Fund
    Job Title: Strategy & Research Specialist

    Job Location: Nairobi, Kenya

    Duration: Minimum 2 years commitment, full-time job

    Organization Description

    Most of the world's poor are farmers, representing the largest and most uniform group of poor people in the world. One Acre Fund is a growing social enterprise in Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi, and Tanzania that is innovating a new way of helping farm families to achieve their full potential. Instead of giving handouts, One Acre Fund invests in farmers to generate a permanent gain in farm income. We provide farmers with a "market bundle" that includes education, finance, seed and fertilizer, and market access. Our program is proven impactful – every year, we weigh thousands of harvests and measure 50-100% average gain in farm income per acre.

    We are growing quickly. In eight years, we have grown to serve 200,000 farm families with more than 2,500 full-time staff, and we will triple again in the coming three years. Our approach has won widespread validation, including grants from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and USAID. Website: www.oneacrefund.org.

    Job Description

Strategy & Research Specialists in the Internal Consulting Team will support managing projects to pursue these growth opportunities and operational improvements.

This role is part of a long-term career-track at One Acre Fund, and with strong performance, the Strategy & Research Specialist will have the opportunity to grow into the Strategy & Research Analyst position.

    Examples of the types of projects that the Strategy & Research Specialist could work on include:

    • Operational Improvement projects designed to make us more efficient and effective. For instance, analyzing farmer repayment data then devising novel strategies to increase repayment. Such work involves quantitate analysis in software like MS Excel.
    • Strategic Growth projects to evaluate and refine One Acre Fund's growth strategy. For instance, determining which districts or new countries make sense for future expansion. Strategy & Research Specialists will conduct secondary research, expert interviews, and data analysis with guidance from their manager.
    • Short-Term Assignments that address immediate organizational needs through research and analytical support. For instance, consulting academic and scientific organizations to improve the design of a new crop trial. These projects require quick thinking, organization and planning skills, and strong analytical and interpersonal skills.

    Job Description

    One Acre Fund Kenya’s long-term vision is to end hunger in Kenya and provide an accessible pathway to prosperity for every farm family in the nation. Our Kenya program is currently transitioning from a start-up environment to a mature operation – and we are seeking a mid-career professional with demonstrated operations management ability to help us build the team and operational systems we need to sustain our rapid rate of growth. Working with our Kenya team presents the opportunity to build upon strong operational foundations in One Acre Fund’s original country of operation and lead our largest field team in delivering impact to a network of hundreds of thousands of farm families.

Though the direct management of 3-4 associate and manager-level individuals and close coordination with leaders from our Innovations, Operations, and Program Design teams, you will play a critical role in ensuring that we build the capacity of our staff team and our back-end systems to provide financially sustainable impact to half a million farmers in Kenya by 2020.

    Key responsibilities and skills will include:

    • Program execution and monitoring: You’ll lead the team that is ultimately responsible for the timely implementation of our unique program that fights poverty and hunger on a daily basis. You exemplify our belief in putting Farmers First by determining methods to keep One Acre Fund a customer-centric organization growing in scale and impact from season to season.

    • Staff development: You’ll establish and cultivate strong relationships to ensure that all staff on the Field Operations team can maximize their career performance and job satisfaction as part of the One Acre Fund family. You’ll epitomize One Acre Fund’s value of being a family of leaders by developing and maintaining processes ensuring that everyone—from the Program Managers directly reporting to you to the newest Field Officer in our program—is continually mentored, challenged, and supported by the organization.
    • Knowledge management: You're detail-oriented and will continuously find new ways to streamline documentation processing and knowledge management for an operation that is rapidly growing in both size and complexity.
    • Budget management: You’re a strategic thinker with the ability to oversee a large operating budget. You’ll efficiently oversee the creation and compilation of annual and monthly budgets. Additionally, your history of leading and building successful initiatives with measurable results will support program improvements that will increase our operational efficiency and reduce operating costs.
    • Support innovation: You dream big – you’ll be creating and supporting ideas that will help One Acre Fund reach its goal of serving 1 million farmers by 2020. Among other things, this will entail providing regular feedback on trial ideas and practical support to our innovations teams as they work to integrate new products and new program design ideas into our core operations.

    Career Growth and Development

    One Acre Fund invests in building management and leadership skills for all staff. In this role, you can expect that your manager will invest significant time in your career development by providing regular, actionable feedback and mentorship during weekly 1:1 meetings and bi-annual career reviews.

The Kenya Country Director and other leadership staff at One Acre Fund will continue to invest significant time in your career development throughout your tenure in this role.

    We are a team that is devoted to rapid career growth for top performing staff. Therefore, you can expect that your manager and other leaders in the organization will be ready and willing to discuss your long-term career goals and work collaboratively with you to craft a role that you can be passionate about.

  • 04/11/16--13:35: Burundi: Program Associate
  • Organization: One Acre Fund
    Country: Burundi, Kenya, Myanmar, Rwanda, United Republic of Tanzania
    Closing date: 31 Jul 2016

    Wanted

    Exceptional professional with 2-5 years of work experience to serve in a position that combines both field and management experience.

    Job Location

    Rural Rwanda, Tanzania, Burundi, Kenya, Uganda, or Nigeria.

    Duration

    Minimum 2 years commitment, full-time job.

    Job Description

    One Acre Fund is growing quickly, and we plan to at least quadruple our farmer impact in the next five years. Program Associates play a major role in driving that growth and ensuring that this growth is stable and systematic – while also adding major innovations and improvements to our program quality. This offers Program Associates a strong career opportunity: the ability to learn from a successful field operation, contribute to aggressive growth, and also make improvements to our program.

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

    Operations: Our country operation teams face a classic leadership and management challenge: how to keep a large country operation growing at 40-75% per year while also making significant improvements to our operating model. Program Associates first 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. They start as generalists, with overall responsibility for executing our program in a region. Over time, they can continue to rise as a general leader, possibly growing to manage an entire country’s field operation. Or they may specialize, for example, in the creation and roll-out of staff development training for hundreds or even 1,000+ team members.

    • Support operations staff build the infrastructure required for growth. These teams proactively eliminate barriers to scale in a diverse range of areas – processing millions of farmer payments, communicating to farmers via tens of millions of SMS, hiring hundreds of new staff per year, and physically moving 20,000+ tons of farm inputs to thousands of drop sites. Program Associates also make steady improvements to accelerate growth – for example, setting up mobile money integration for a country.

    Innovations: Our Innovations teams discover new ideas for our programs and conduct dozens of trials to test these ideas. As an organization, we constantly seek to learn and improve, and our Innovations teams lead the way.

    • Product Innovations staff improve our core agricultural products or run new experiments in energy and health products. The ideas they discover may eventually scale to hundreds of thousands of households. Product Innovations staff design trials, execute trials together with thousands of farmers, synthesize trial data, and make constant revisions to the product offering. For example, our Product Innovations team is currently testing delivery of live chickens and preparing the product for full-scale rollout. One Acre Fund is also increasingly delving into energy and health, and we are currently one of the largest sellers of solar lights in Sub-Saharan Africa.

    • Scale Innovations staff seek to improve our core operating model. By running trials with tens of thousands of farmers, they analyze targeted questions such as: does moving from a group liability loan to an individual liability loan improve repayment and customer satisfaction? Or they might investigate more radical ideas, such as setting up physical One Acre Fund shops to see if there are more efficient ways to deliver high-quality service to farmers. They try variations on our program with the goal of improving our scalability, impact, and financial sustainability.

    On a day-to-day basis, nearly all roles involve a mix of activities:

    • Understanding and solving problems: observing field operations, meeting with leaders of our field staff , running surveys, conducting desk research, analyzing KPIs, etc. Then creating simple and lasting solutions to complex problems.
    • Planning and executing large projects: identifying clear goals, creating project calendars, designing workflows, creating field tools and talking points, designing incentive systems and understanding stakeholders, following up and monitoring project execution in the field, etc.
    • Building teams: hiring staff using One Acre Fund’s unique “experiential hiring” system, mentoring key deputies, and steadily handing off responsibility to your team as you build it.
    • Communicating with other teams: working in coordination with One Acre Fund’s other teams on the ground to execute a smooth customer experience in the simplest way possible.

    One Acre Fund has deep operational experience running rural field programs at a scale of 1,000+ full-time staff per country. Program Associates benefit from this past experience, quickly building their skill-set through immersion in our operating environment. At the same time, the main role of Program Associates 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.

    Qualifications

    We are seeking exceptional professionals with 2 to 5+ years of work experience, and a demonstrated long-term passion for international development. Candidates who fit the following criteria are strongly encouraged to apply:

    • Strong work experiences. Examples include a demanding professional work experience, or successful entrepreneurial experience, e.g. starting a field program in a developing country, leading a conference, starting a business, solid Volunteer Service Organization accomplishments (VSO, Peace Corps, JICA, etc).
    • Leadership experience at work, or outside of work.
    • Top-performing undergraduate background (include final grade/marks/GPA).
    • Humility. We are looking for passionate professionals who combine strong leadership skills with good humor, patience, and a humble approach to service to join our growing family of leaders.
    • A willingness to commit to living in rural areas of East Africa for at least two years – this is a long-term, career-track role. The ideal candidate will have at least one year demonstrated experience working in the developing world, although this is not a strict requirement.
    • Language: English required in all locations. French required for Burundi placement. Other notable and useful languages are Swahili, Kinyarwanda, Kirundi, Chichewa, Amharic.
    • Ability to cook/laugh – desirable.

    Preferred Start Date

    Flexible

    Compensation

    Starts modest. However, this is a career-track role with fast raises for performance, paying a meaningful salary for long-term placement in developing nations.

    Benefits

    Health insurance, immunizations, flight, room and board.

    Organization: One Acre Fund
    Closing date: 30 Sep 2017

    Job Location

    East Africa – primarily rural, with some time in urban cities (exact location being finalized)

    Job Description

    One Acre Fund is looking for an exceptional professional with prior field experience to run a randomized control trial (RCT) of a direct-giving program model, with roughly 1,000 families. The purpose of this RCT is to inform an experimental direct-giving model with real potential for significant scale.

    The RCT will test the transfer of productive products and service bundles to poor households. Example products include pico solar lamps, improved cook stoves, and malaria nets. Example services include pregnancy support, family savings account, and inpatient hospital cover. The RCT will likely also test consumer preference for these products and services, vs. simply receiving cash.

    Why direct giving and why transfer products and services instead of cash?

    • One Acre Fund believes that a significantly more philanthropic world is possible. If in the future there was a massive expansion in philanthropy, we want to be ready with new models that could cost-effectively deploy billions of dollars. Direct giving presents one such opportunity, and we strongly support research in this area.
    • Our core focus remains on revenue-generating programs. However, we regularly experiment with new programs.
    • Why not transfer cash? There is already strong existing research around unconditional and conditional cash transfer. We believe our comparative advantage as a field operator is to provide products and services, as opposed to cash, and hence we wish to test this.
    • We remain open to a cash transfer option, and part of this study would likely test consumer preferences for goods vs. cash.
    • We do believe that products and services do have potential advantages – our current experience with these products indicate they could be income-generating or expenditure-saving; they are currently not available which is why they are not purchased currently; and some products such as malaria nets have positive externalities.

    The direct-giving trial coordinator role will oversee the entire RCT:

    • The trial leader will work with external academic(s) to design the trial arms. Part of this work will be completed by the time of hire.
      • Establish the trials’ key variables and measurement strategy with a critical eye for analytical / statistical rigor and power
      • Design trial arms’ product / service offerings
      • Create operational strategy – including staffing plan, calendar of operations, supply chain, etc.
    • This role must effectively translate theoretical trial designs into actual product and service offerings.
      • Example: Figure out how to execute family savings accounts in the field for the trial. Possibly investigate the purchase of a biometric ATM, as this is a possible future scale-up option.
      • Example: Investigate and evaluate providers of family planning services in the region. Then establish a simple process to give trial families access to the provider.
    • Excellent field execution is the cornerstone to success in this role. The role is not only responsible for strategic elements of the trial, but also their effective execution through precise planning and field staff leadership.
      • Hire and train field officers and M&E data collectors
      • Develop messaging strategy and marketing materials for client enrollment
      • Enroll and socialize 1,000 HHs on products and service offering
      • Measure 1,000 HHs on indicators with excellent data quality, likely via external measurement firm
      • Establish systems and controls for efficient office and field operations
    • There will be a lot of “etcetera” including IRB approval, stakeholder communication, etc.

    Career Growth and Development

    One Acre Fund invests in building management and leadership skills. Your manager and a global support team will commit significant time in your career development. We provide constant, actionable feedback delivered through mentorship and through regular management consulting-style career reviews. We also have regular one-on-one meetings, where we listen to and discuss career goals, and work collaboratively to craft roles that each person can be passionate about. Because of our rapid growth, we frequently have new high-level roles opening up and opportunities across many functions.

    Qualifications

    We are seeking exceptional professionals with 2-5+ years of work experience and a demonstrated passion for international development and experimental trial design. Candidates who fit the following criteria are strongly encouraged to apply:

    • Experience implementing on-the-ground, impactful programs at scale. Examples include running a direct-giving RCT, a large-scale campaign in a developing country, or an exceptionally high-quality Volunteer Service program.
    • Strong work experiences. Unstructured work experiences are also helpful.
    • Analytical understanding required, but deep statistical skills are not required. The ideal candidate will know or be able to easily pick-up the meaning of power calculations, R-square, N, the difference between noise and bias, the value of an RCT design in reducing selection bias, balance checks, etc. However, deep statistical ability is not required, as this will be handled by both our analytical team and outside academics.
    • We are looking for passionate professionals who combine strong leadership skills with good humor, patience, and a humble approach to service to join our growing family of leaders.
    • Leadership experiences at work, or outside of work.
    • A willingness to commit to living in rural areas of East Africa for at least two years – this is a long-term, career-track role. The ideal candidate will have at least one year demonstrated experience working in the developing world.
    • Language: English required.

    Preferred Start Date

    Flexible

    Compensation

    We offer a modest starting salary that affords a high quality of life in our areas of operation. This is a career-track role with performance-based raises and the ability to expand responsibilities over time.

    Benefits

    Health insurance, immunizations, flights, housing.

    Organization: One Acre Fund
    Closing date: 30 Sep 2017

    Job Location

    East Africa – primarily rural, with some time in urban cities (exact location being finalized)

    Job Description

    One Acre Fund is looking for an exceptional professional with prior field experience to run a randomized control trial (RCT) of a direct-giving program model, with roughly 1,000 families. The purpose of this RCT is to inform an experimental direct-giving model with real potential for significant scale.

    The RCT will test the transfer of productive products and service bundles to poor households. Example products include pico solar lamps, improved cook stoves, and malaria nets. Example services include pregnancy support, family savings account, and inpatient hospital cover. The RCT will likely also test consumer preference for these products and services, vs. simply receiving cash.

    Why direct giving and why transfer products and services instead of cash?

    • One Acre Fund believes that a significantly more philanthropic world is possible. If in the future there was a massive expansion in philanthropy, we want to be ready with new models that could cost-effectively deploy billions of dollars. Direct giving presents one such opportunity, and we strongly support research in this area.
    • Our core focus remains on revenue-generating programs. However, we regularly experiment with new programs.
    • Why not transfer cash? There is already strong existing research around unconditional and conditional cash transfer. We believe our comparative advantage as a field operator is to provide products and services, as opposed to cash, and hence we wish to test this.
    • We remain open to a cash transfer option, and part of this study would likely test consumer preferences for goods vs. cash.
    • We do believe that products and services do have potential advantages – our current experience with these products indicate they could be income-generating or expenditure-saving; they are currently not available which is why they are not purchased currently; and some products such as malaria nets have positive externalities.

    The direct-giving trial coordinator role will oversee the entire RCT:

    • The trial leader will work with external academic(s) to design the trial arms. Part of this work will be completed by the time of hire.
      • Establish the trials’ key variables and measurement strategy with a critical eye for analytical / statistical rigor and power
      • Design trial arms’ product / service offerings
      • Create operational strategy – including staffing plan, calendar of operations, supply chain, etc.
    • This role must effectively translate theoretical trial designs into actual product and service offerings.
      • Example: Figure out how to execute family savings accounts in the field for the trial. Possibly investigate the purchase of a biometric ATM, as this is a possible future scale-up option.
      • Example: Investigate and evaluate providers of family planning services in the region. Then establish a simple process to give trial families access to the provider.
    • Excellent field execution is the cornerstone to success in this role. The role is not only responsible for strategic elements of the trial, but also their effective execution through precise planning and field staff leadership.
      • Hire and train field officers and M&E data collectors
      • Develop messaging strategy and marketing materials for client enrollment
      • Enroll and socialize 1,000 HHs on products and service offering
      • Measure 1,000 HHs on indicators with excellent data quality, likely via external measurement firm
      • Establish systems and controls for efficient office and field operations
    • There will be a lot of “etcetera” including IRB approval, stakeholder communication, etc.

    Career Growth and Development

    One Acre Fund invests in building management and leadership skills. Your manager and a global support team will commit significant time in your career development. We provide constant, actionable feedback delivered through mentorship and through regular management consulting-style career reviews. We also have regular one-on-one meetings, where we listen to and discuss career goals, and work collaboratively to craft roles that each person can be passionate about. Because of our rapid growth, we frequently have new high-level roles opening up and opportunities across many functions.

    Qualifications

    We are seeking exceptional professionals with 2-5+ years of work experience and a demonstrated passion for international development and experimental trial design. Candidates who fit the following criteria are strongly encouraged to apply:

    • Experience implementing on-the-ground, impactful programs at scale. Examples include running a direct-giving RCT, a large-scale campaign in a developing country, or an exceptionally high-quality Volunteer Service program.
    • Strong work experiences. Unstructured work experiences are also helpful.
    • Analytical understanding required, but deep statistical skills are not required. The ideal candidate will know or be able to easily pick-up the meaning of power calculations, R-square, N, the difference between noise and bias, the value of an RCT design in reducing selection bias, balance checks, etc. However, deep statistical ability is not required, as this will be handled by both our analytical team and outside academics.
    • We are looking for passionate professionals who combine strong leadership skills with good humor, patience, and a humble approach to service to join our growing family of leaders.
    • Leadership experiences at work, or outside of work.
    • A willingness to commit to living in rural areas of East Africa for at least two years – this is a long-term, career-track role. The ideal candidate will have at least one year demonstrated experience working in the developing world.
    • Language: English required.

    Preferred Start Date

    Flexible

    Compensation

    We offer a modest starting salary that affords a high quality of life in our areas of operation. This is a career-track role with performance-based raises and the ability to expand responsibilities over time.

    Benefits

    Health insurance, immunizations, flights, housing.

    Sponsor International Candidates

    Yes

    East Africans are strongly encouraged to apply.
