    The Nigeria Systems Associate supports the expansion of the OAF model in Nigeria. More specifically, this role supports all systems related aspects of the our field operations including procurement, warehouse management, inventory tracking, quality control, supply chain management, input delivery, client data management, and processing farmer payments. If successful, the program is scaled to thousands of households and the Systems Associate plays a key role in the scale-up process.

You would implement standardized processes, execute sustained quality improvements, build a database of strong long-term suppliers, negotiate fair pricing terms and maintain procurement process transparency.
    • Logistics: The primary responsibility here is to ensure that we deliver life-changing inputs and materials to farmers on time and at high quality. You would lead the process of storing, then delivering hundreds of tons of seed and fertilizer to thousands of farmers. This would require planning, troubleshooting, warehouse management, procurement of trucks, route mapping etc.

This would likely include processing payments from thousands of clients, ensuring high client satisfaction and customer service, as well as building systems for scale.
