    One Acre Fund Program Manager Jobs in Tanzania

    Job Description

    Rapid organization growth translates into great career opportunities for our staff. We invest heavily in careers – we want to develop our next group of country directors, R&D directors, and partnership leaders. Example projects include:

  • Program associate management: Program managers directly manage 1-3 program associates and 10-100 local staff. Managers invest in the growth of their direct reports through frequent project feedback, skills-building, and mentorship.
    Government partnerships development: One Acre Fund receives frequent requests from African governments to jointly implement nationwide agricultural training, fertilizer distribution programs, and credit programs. A program manager took the lead in setting up our newest government partnership operation, initially to pilot one project. Within a year, this operation had fifty staff and is likely to at least quadruple in the coming two years, to hopefully 2-3 nationwide partnerships.
  • Sweet potato vine production: One Acre Fund farmers needed high-quality sweet potato vines in the 2013 season to avoid crop loss due to a maize disease. When these vines were unavailable in the quantity necessary, a program manager started a sweet potato multiplication farm to ensure all farmers received quality inputs on time. This included designing farm operations, hiring staff, negotiating contracts, coordinating logistics and managing more than 600 seasonal employees.
  • Department leadership opportunities: In their second year of service, top performing program staffers are often given the responsibility of running an internal One Acre Fund department like “Scale Innovations.” This department runs dozens of test-and-control trials with 10,000+ farmers that radically tweak our program model, with the
    goal of significantly increasing our scalability.
  • New markets: One Acre Fund has ambitious plans to launch one new country per year. In 2011, a program manager moved to Burundi to direct field operations for an initial 400-farmer pilot. Three years later, One Acre Fund’s Burundi operation serves 21,000 farmers with 110 staff.

    Qualifications

  • Demonstrated interest and experience in international development, requiring at least one year of living in a developing nation.
  • A willingness to live outside of a capital city, close to our customers for at least two years, minimum.
  • Top-performing undergraduate background (include GPA and test scores on your resume).
  • Strong work experiences. Examples include professional work experience, or some kind of successful entrepreneurial experience (e.g. starting a field program in a developing country, leading a conference, starting a business, Peace Corps).
  • Leadership experience at work, or outside of work.
  • 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.
  • Language: English required in Kenya, Tanzania, and Rwanda. French required in Burundi.

    One Acre Fund Program Director Jobs in Tanzania

    Responsibilities

  • Create a strategic vision: This position does not involve managing an existing operation – we are seeking an entrepreneur who can create an operation, growing it from roughly 5 existing staff to hundreds. This involves a lot of strategic flexibility and independence. We are also seeking someone who is based in the field (in rural areas) at first, in order to craft a vision that results in the best possible customer service to farmers.
  • Hire and develop staff: Our program directors will have to hire a lot of people, and more importantly, invest the majority of their energy in developing managers and leaders underneath them.
  • Engage staff and lead: Our program model requires high tailoring to specific contexts. The program director will have to make decisions together with their leadership team by engaging them and then lead them to execute a common vision.
  • External and internal relations: We are seeking someone who will be a strong communicator both externally and also internally, together with fellow leaders in the organization.

    Qualifications

  • Strong work experiences. We are seeking an entrepreneur who has previously grown an operation from scratch to hundreds of staff, or tens of thousands of customers, etc, in a developing nation. And we want someone who wants to go back to scratch and do it again, instead of managing a large existing operation.
  • Likeability and humility. All of our country directors to date have grown up within our operation, learning directly from farmers in a start-up environment. We value humility and likeability and wish to be joined by leaders that value the same.
  • Top-performing undergraduate background (please include GPA and test scores on your resume).
  • A willingness to live outside of a capital city, close to our customers in East Africa for at least three years – this is a long-term, career-track role. The candidate should have at least one year demonstrated experience working in the developing world.
  • Language: English required in Kenya, Tanzania, and Rwanda. French required in Burundi.
