Brand Strategist

One Acre Fund

About the organization

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.


The Brand Strategist will lead One Acre Fund’s efforts to build our brand and maintain a positive reputation that allows us to achieve our goals for farmers. This is not a traditional marketing role, focused on selling a product. This is a unique opportunity to position a fast-growing organization in six diverse markets across Africa. You’ll define what makes us unique and communicate it to the world.

It’s an ideal role for someone who loves drawing insights from data and using them to direct world-class creative. You’ll work closely with our in-house teams (digital, media, creative, and culture) to develop audience insights, craft key messages, and design integrated marketing campaigns. You’ll advise senior leaders and deliver data showing that our brand reputation supports our core business objectives.

Responsibilities include:

Employer Branding
Corporate Reputation
Digital Distribution and Analytics
