Job Ad & Profile Description

Position : Rwanda Strategy & Operations Analyst

We are looking for a motivated project analyst to join our Rwanda Finance & Strategy team. You will work on short-medium term projects across multiple functions to solve complex operational, strategic and financial problems to support long term strategy.


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, our farmers harvest 50 percent more food after working with One Acre Fund. 


We are looking for a motivated project analyst to join our our Strategic Projects team sitting in the Rwanda Strategy & Finance department. You will work on short-medium term projects across multiple functions to solve complex operational, strategic and financial problems to increase farmer impact, improve operations and achieve higher sustainability. You will be creating structure out of ambiguity. With so many varied projects, no day is ever the same, and the role includes exposure to high-level strategy, working within different departments, and getting into the field.

You will report to the Strategic Projects Manager and take on full ownership of projects, from planning, through to execution and follow-up, often working directly with project partners, including sometimes the Country/Deputy-Country Directors. The projects will vary depending on program priorities and project complexities, but you will manage anywhere from 2-5 projects at any given time, and are expected to handle any type of project – from quantitative modelling to primary research – with a focus of analyzing and solving the problem at hand.

You may be asked to take on direct management responsibilities within our growing team of analysts. Longer-term, there will also be opportunities to lead increasingly large projects or join/lead a department you are supporting.


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.
