About The Team
Harvest team links the farmers we plant with and the Processing & Sales teams, this makes Harvest Operations Department one of the most dynamic teams at Komaza. Trees planted in the early days of the company are now mature for harvest and the annual wood flows are set to rise dramatically in line with the historical planting rates. We face the challenging but rewarding task of ensuring that we are able to efficiently and cost-effectively extract trees on time from our distributed farms and get them to our processing team ahead of sales to customers. As such, the Harvest team is set to grow rapidly over the next few years - in terms of staffing, investing in mechanization, adding new teams in Kwale County, and providing support and input to our newest location in Central Kenya.
About This Role
As the Harvest Foreman, you are primarily responsible for executing and managing our harvesting plans with our field-based teams. Harvesting is the final piece of the field-based forestry value chain, and requires close coordination with internal and external stakeholders including multiple harvesting teams, transportation providers, the Finance department, and the Processing & Sales teams. As we scale our operations geographically, you will inform continuous design improvements to Harvest’s intricate operational, planning and organisational systems. Due to the travel restrictions currently in place due to Covid19, the role is only open to candidates located in Kilifi, Kwale or Malindi.

About The Team
Data plays a critical role at Komaza - by putting a smartphone in the hand of every single Field Extension agent, we are able to collect and analyze real-time information on all aspects of our value chain from Planting to Sales. Working in close collaboration with the Technology Development team (who create custom software to collect and store this data) Business Intelligence is the central nervous system of information at Komaza, and is tasked with designing new visualization tools, dashboards and human systems for leveraging data in our day-to-day operations. A core focus of the department is defining and managing the seams between our diverse data systems.
