About One Acre Fund

Founded in 2006, One Acre Fund supplies 1 million smallholder farmers with the agricultural services they need to make their farms vastly more productive. Our 8,000+ team is drawn from diverse backgrounds and professions. With operations across six core countries in Africa, we make farmers more prosperous by providing quality farm supplies on credit, delivered within walking distance of farmers’ homes, and agricultural training to improve harvests. On average, the farmers we serve harvest 50 percent more food after working with One Acre Fund.

About the Role

We believe that new technology is critical to building the most effective rural distribution network on the African continent. Today, we reach over 1.6 million farm families and we aspire to serve more than 10 million households in the coming decade. Reporting to the Global Director of Operations, you will lead our future tech strategy, focusing on a mobile tech transformation: provide our field staff with the mobile-based tools to reach more farmers; develop scalable, direct communication channels with farmers to improve customer service; and digitize and decentralize data collection tools to speed up data flows and improve efficiency.

We are looking for someone with the technical experience to bring this vision to life; the CTO will transform our technology into a core organizational strength, working through several technology departments: software development, architecture, IT operations, product management, information security, and data analytics.

  • Lead Top Tech Priorities: Provide detailed, hands-on guidance for tech projects based on an intimate understanding of our clients and internal users.
  • Develop Leaders and Build Team: Manage a leadership team of ~5 senior-level direct reports, and increase career growth and performance across the division.Grow the careers of leaders across the tech division through weekly check-ins and workshops, ongoing development feedback, and regular career reviews.
  • Provide technical mentorship to the team.
  • Lead recruitment efforts to ensure we are building our team with top talent.
  • Set clear performance expectations and support the team to build itself as a center of excellence.

Career Growth and Development

We have a strong culture of constant learning and we invest in developing our people. You’ll have weekly check-ins with your manager, access to mentorship and training programs, and regular feedback on your performance. We hold career reviews every six months, and set aside time to discuss your aspirations and career goals. You’ll have the opportunity to shape a growing organization and build a rewarding long-term career.

Across all roles, these are the general qualifications we look for. For this role specifically, you will have:

  • 10+ years of industry experience with 5+ years leading and managing technology teams.
  • Experience working with mobile technology solutions.
  • Passion for providing hands-on execution guidance for large teams.
  • Experience managing Agile software engineering teams successfully deploying solutions to support complex processes.
  • Experience translating complex customer needs into high-quality tech solutions that deliver impact.
  • Experience with our tech (C# .Net Core, CouchBase, React Native and Kubernetes) and our tooling landscape (GitHub, JIRA, and Azure DevOps).
  • Humility. We are looking for a passionate professional who combines a focus on excellent performance with good humor, patience and a service mindset interested in joining our family of leaders.
