Job Description
One Acre Fund is growing quickly, and we plan to at least quadruple our farmer impact in the next five years. Our staff play a major role in driving that growth while adding major innovations and improvements to our program quality. This offers staff members a strong career opportunity: the ability to learn from a successful field operation, contribute to aggressive growth, and also make improvements to our program.

We are currently seeking an Agronomist to join the Product Innovations team in Kenya. This team works to discover new ideas for our programs and conducts dozens of trials to test them. We have a broad research portfolio, but the majority of our trials focus on new ways to boost yields and agricultural productivity for smallholder farmers. We conduct a large number of experimental trials each season, including over one hundred trials at five research stations spread across Kenya. We are continually looking for new ways to bring cutting-edge agricultural technologies and improved methods to the more than 200,000 smallholder farmers we serve.
