Who Should Apply?

We welcome candidates of all backgrounds, and we especially encourage non-traditional candidates to apply. The initial application only takes a few moments.

The Application Process
We have a deliberately rigorous (and sometimes lengthy) interview process. We take time to find the best people to join our team, because they will determine our entire future as an organization. We think it's important for our candidates to take advantage of this process as well—learning about the organization, their future coworkers, and the role itself.
Our process starts with traditional interviews to get a sense of high-level thinking, and as you progress we also layer in exercises that simulate the types of projects you would be working on as One Acre Fund employee.
The final step of the interview processes is always an in-person interview, at the office where the job would be located. This process includes a practical work exercise, which gives us a chance to try working together. More importantly, it gives you a chance to see the type of work you would be doing firsthand, to meet potential coworkers, and to understand what life and career at One Acre Fund looks like in a practical sense.
