Role Title: Monitoring, Evaluation, Research & Learning (MERL) Manager
Are you driven to make a positive impact on millions of lives and leave a lasting legacy? Do you want to utilize your talents and skills to make a difference, rather than simply earning a living? Are you passionate about contributing to feeding the world, both now and in the future? Farmerline is dedicated to reimagining how the world thinks about and invests in the livelihoods of small-scale farmers. Our mission is to create lasting profits for farmers everywhere. We approach challenges with bold and systemic thinking while maintaining a lean and nimble operation.
Farmerline, an agritech, was founded in 2013 serving 800 farmers in the Ashanti Region of Ghana through mobile information services. Over the past 10 years, we have expanded our impact significantly, having profiled and served over 1.7 million farmers and digitized more than 4 million acres of land through collaboration with over 3,000 strategic partners across 48 countries. Farmerline also works with other stakeholders in the agricultural sector to provide access to financing, inputs, and markets for smallholder farmers. Farmerline’s Mergdata, a web and mobile application, offers real-time traceability, certification audit, farm mapping, farmer education, and analytics solutions to help organizations that work with farmers achieve their sustainability and food security goals efficiently. Mergdata uses big data and AI to give organizations insight into the work of farmers and to give farmers increased access to resources and services; including financial services. Farmerline is currently one of the fastest growing Agtech companies in Africa, having recently secured a pre-Series A funding of $14 million, led by Acumen Resilient Agriculture Fund (ARAF), Oikocredit, FMO (the Dutch entrepreneurial development bank), and nine other global investors. We recently expanded into francophone Africa with an official launch of operations in Cote d’Ivoire; deepening our partnerships across West Africa and accelerating our commitment to support small scale farmers everywhere.
We foster a learning organization where you will have the opportunity to apply your ideas and creativity to solve problems on a daily basis. If you are drawn to a dynamic, collaborative culture, set high standards, and tackle challenges with determination and a sense of humor, Farmerline is the perfect environment for you to thrive. We are proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer, valuing diversity and encouraging applications from all candidates. We firmly believe that diverse perspectives empower our teams to create innovative solutions and better understand the needs of our global clients. Aligned with our values, we are committed to recruiting and retaining a diverse global workforce without any form of discrimination.
