People are at the heart of every connection we build. We design products and deliver services that provide food to families and improve food security — one crop at a time.
Okuafo Foundation was birth by Healthy Career Initiative, an NGO in Ghana that focuses on Digital Literacy, Agriculture and Health. Okuafo Foundation is focused on researching and developing solutions that aid farmers to increase crop yield, increase profit and promote food security across the African continent.
At Okuafo Foundation, you’ll do the best work of your career. Every day, you’ll have new problems to solve—and meet new people to learn from. And we’re committed to supporting the learning you need to grow. In everything we do, we’re guided by five core values; Be Open, Be Bold, Build Social Value, Focus on Impact and Move Fast.
So far we've improved the lives of over 200 farmers. We have 3 products and offer one crucial service. We have hundreds of thousands more to go.This is the right time to join us.
We strongly believe in impact. Our research doesn't end up in our labs only. Our processes involve design thinking, research, prototyping and product development.
Leveraging cutting edge technologies like Data Analytics, Big Data, Machine Learning and IoT, we research into how these technologies can have a direct or indirect impact on the average person. Our work has direct impact because we're part of the people. Having real experiences as farmers, it's easier for us to connect with the locals and their problems.
Our diverse and inclusive team of experienced and talented software developers, Data Scientists, Researchers and Field Operators, work collaboratively to build solution based on intensive research done by our team. These problems are built with the farmers at the center and impact tops it all.
We understand working with complicated AI Algorithms and Data can be tricky. Our development process involves close monitoring and beta testing to allow us generate more real-world data and improve the performance of our models.
Our biggest mission is to contribute enormously to the UNs' SDG Goal 2, which seeks to End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.
We are looking for very open minded people, very passionate to drive change and the will to learn to join our diverse team of shapers and makers.
