About the Team

Field Operations is the heart-center of operations at Komaza. We are deeply systems-oriented and enjoy the challenge of training and managing hundreds of new teammates each season. In order to plant tree farms with thousands of new farmers every year, we are laser-focused on hitting our key performance indicators. We thrive on data, and technology is playing an ever-increasing role in our day-to-day work life. 

Field Operations is ultimately responsible for the planning, coordination and timely implementation of our innovative micro-forestry model, which creates life-changing income for our farmers by growing trees more cost-efficiently than large-scale plantations. We enroll farmers; support them through land preparation; distribute inputs and seedlings; plant trees; ensure post-planting care and long-term maintenance.

About the Role

The Planting Field Officer role is appropriate for hard-working professionals who are good at managing teams to implement projects in the field, and who have a sincere commitment to serving farmers with integrity and positivity. Planting Field Officers are based in the field to manage small rural field teams, and spend most of their time collaborating with the local administration officials, managing Field Facilitators in their field activities by providing training, coaching and mentoring teammates, leading brainstorming of challenges and solutions, answering questions, reporting on progress, and ensuring work is being carried out to a high quality.
