One Acre Fund Software Developer Jobs in Uganda

Job Description

One Acre Fund relies on a home-grown Client Management Information System to help us manage our field program information.

As we grow our organization, we need to continually improve this system and facilitate its integration with third party tools.

Currently, our Client Management Information System handles the enrollment of 180,000-300,000 smallholder farmers spread over multiple countries, records farm supply orders, manages the delivery of seed, fertilizer, and solar lights to clients, tracks millions of payment transactions, and creates a wide variety of business intelligence reports.

Our database uses a distributed client/server model where field offices can perform data entry and run reports offline while syncing with a central server as needed (e.g., during times of poor internet connectivity).

On the backend, the technologies used are SQL server 2014 with merge replication to field offices, while on the front end we use MVC.Net, Breeze.js, and Angular.js.

S/he will be responsible for the following:

  • Producing a field-facing, mission-critical Program Management System.
  • Participating in the continued development of our mission-critical custom database, which impacts every aspect of the organization’s operations.
  • Developing features allowing for flexibility in the way individual countries run their operations, while still focusing on reusability across countries.
  • Maintaining a long-term perspective when faced with urgent operational demands.
  • Working together with our small team of developers.
  • Maintaining coding standards and participating in peer code reviews.
  • Technology experimentation: Experimenting with a variety of technologies to
    improve operations.
  • Investigating appropriate solutions for deploying upgrades, database scaling, and interacting with 3rd party software providers.
    Operational insight

  • Candidates fitting the following profile are strongly encouraged to apply:

  • Accordingly, we need someone who is very well-organized and can manage their work independently.
  • Willingness to commit to the position for at least two years.
  • Experience living in a developing country is desired, but not a requirement.
