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.
Business Transformation Associate/Manager will work across countries to map and align key operational processes in order to make software development efforts more efficient and scalable, and to support the building of a set of requirements to guide our long term system development strategy.
The Business Transformation Manager will work alongside the Product Managers within the Technology Division to consolidate best practice processes across our countries of operation and identify misaligned or divergent processes which may be leading to conflicting technical requirements and solution design and limiting the opportunity for maximizing global standardized processes. The role will have 3 main focuses:
Process Mapping and alignment to make active software development more efficient.
Improving processes and reducing manual effort for items that are not currently active development projects.
Mapping global standardized processes for our future technology solution.
We have a strong culture of constant learning and we invest in developing our people. Youll have weekly check-ins with your manager, access to mentorship and training programs, and regular feedback on your performance.

Youll have the opportunity to shape a growing organization and build a rewarding long-term career.
