Proximity Designs provides income-boosting products and services to hundreds of thousands of smallholder farmers in Myanmar every year. As the organization continues to support rural families through the challenging post-coup environment, we are looking for someone who can work closely with the Head of Operations and other function leaders to guide strategic and operational decisions.

As the Head of Data Analytics you will play a key role in driving the growth of Yetagon Farm Services, our customer-facing brand. As Yetagon Farm Services evolves to deliver new high-impact services, expands into new crops and regions, and scales our offerings to hundreds of thousands of new farmers across the country, data analytics is increasingly important. The data you and the team collects, manages and analyzes will improve our operations and services, so we can better serve our customers and create even greater impact on their lives.

This is currently a remote role with the possibility of relocation to Myanmar once circumstances allow.

Once You’re Here, You Will:

  • Lead Proximity’s overall data strategy and initiatives that will help Proximity manage change and build needed capabilities.
  • Enable the data environment through effective collaboration with the IT/Digital function.
  • Manage and build the capacity of the data analytics and business intelligence team.
  • Oversee dashboard development work based on Proximity's strategic priorities and needs and promote dashboard usage for performance monitoring and decision-making across the organization.
  • Coach and mentor the team to provide regular performance analysis and recommendations to key functions
  • Run operational analyses and generate key performance insights to guide strategic discussions.
  • Foster data-driven culture across the organization by providing key data training, coaching and empowering team members, and building trust and rapport with key team leaders and staff.


  • You are a data whiz. Not only do you love exploring data, you can wrangle messy datasets, draw insights and tell compelling stories from the numbers that lead to practical business action.
  • You can think strategically and win the trust of key leaders to influence the direction of the organization
  • You have a successful track record of managing cross-cultural teams and building rigorous data systems and processes
  • You are a great listener, teacher and coach, who enjoys building team members’ capabilities in getting the most from data.
  • You are an Excel guru (advanced excel formulas; Pivots; Queries; macros) and have a foundation in statistical software or programming (Python, R) and are able to self-learn new skills.
  • You are a strong communicator and are able to break down complex numbers into graspable concepts.

In return…

You’ll earn a competitive salary, with medical benefits, and incredible opportunities to develop your career. You can expect an annual impact bonus, an amazing office with the forward-thinking people and world-class training opportunities through Proximity School.

You’ll get to see more of the world, with the potential for international travel to conferences and events to keep your skills sharp.

And, ultimately, you’ll have the opportunity to change lives in Myanmar for the better, while doing groundbreaking work.

About Proximity

Proximity Designs is an award-winning social business in Myanmar. We design and deliver affordable, income-boosting products that complement the entrepreneurial spirit of rural families.

Launched in 2004, we’ve created Myanmar’s largest agricultural services platform — farm technology, advising and finance — to help small family farms be profitable. Across our platform, we’re now engaging with over 100,000 new customers a year, on top of the 550,000 we’ve already served. These families see an average of $250 annual income increase as a result — a life-changing amount for those living on less than $3 a day.

By using human-centered design, we listen, observe and learn from our customers. From this deep knowledge, we design and bring to market products and services to meet their changing needs. Today the scope of our network reaches nearly 80 percent of the farming population. We have customers in the Ayeyarwady Delta, Lower Myanmar, the central Dry Zone and the Shan hills.
