True behavior change lies at the heart of the Komaza model. Our tree farms serve as a unique long-term savings vehicle for our farmers, generating an additional return of 150% of their equivalent income over the life of a single farm. However, the journey from planting to harvest can be a stressful time. Across this decade our farmers experience the hope of a better tomorrow, but also uncertainty, fear, and conflict.

Duties for the Farmer Insights Manager Job

  • Develop and manage a Farmer Insights Request System to collect and organize farmer insights requests from other departments to create and prioritize Design Challenges based on importance/urgency, with input from Komaza leadership.
  • Create reports and PPTs to communicate new Farmer insights and recommendations.

Farmer Insights Manager Job Requirements

  • 5+ years of deep experience with ethnographic research, specifically Human Centered Design, but also other customer-centric product and service design processes.
  • Deep professional experience implementing and improving upon the latest behavior change research and frameworks as outlined in the works ofNudge, Switch, Predictably Irrational, Thinking Fast & Slow, etc.
  • Ability to use experience to envision Komaza’s customized approach to using Human Centered Design as a system for driving Farmer insights.
  • Experience managing teams of 4+ people, directly coaching on process and performance improvement, and managing for collective outcomes.
  • Ability to work collaboratively across diverse and fast moving teams and departments, and able to understand complex and undeveloped challenges to distill them down into approachable Design Challenges through collaboration with department leaders and Farmer Insights Associates.
  • Ability to see the forest for the trees – to not get overwhelmed by an endlessly growing list of questions, and to draw subtle connections between them in order to create integrated Design Challenges.
  • 2-5 years experience at startups, consulting or other professional services firms.
  • A behavioral economics geek who finds people endlessly fascinating and reads books and articles and listens to podcasts about behavior change in your free time.

  • Self-directed and intellectually curious – you know how and when to seek feedback in the pursuit of continuous improvement.
  • Growth-obsessed with a strong desire for personal and professional development.
  • A collaborative problem solver who thinks outside traditional constraints and seeks the opinions of other teammates and departments in the pursuit of ever-better solutions.
  • Experienced working with smallholder farmers, and familiar with rural economic development and commercial business models generally, in order to understand the complexities of Komaza’s model operating at the intersection of the two.
