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.
We are seeking a smart, dedicated and analytical M&E or field research professional to be an M&E Associate located in Zomba, Malawi. Overall, the M&E Associate will be responsible for using data to continually improve our operations, and impact on our customers.

The Malawi program also runs a hybrid seed promotion project which serves a large swath of the country. The primary duties for the M&E Associate in Malawi are to ensure that data collection systems are running properly, data analysis is completed with action-oriented recommendations, and M&E staff are continuing to grow professionally.
