The Project Manager is expected to dive-in to the details of developing new products and iterating on
existing products within the Product team: tasks will range from liaising with the tech team to ensure
smooth delivery of projects, to visiting the field to understand the on-the-ground perspective, to
synthesizing learnings from the business and contributing to the creation of new value-additive products
for farmers, agrodealers, agents, and clients.

ROLES
● Support on the development of new products, such as implementing new business intelligence
tools for clients, improving Pula’s system for tailored agronomy messages to farmers, and
building out the content of Pula’s automated WhatsApp response system
● Proactively determine improvements to existing products, leveraging information gathered from
field visits, surveys, and data analysis to drive better results from Pula’s existing core products
(insurance registration, referrals, agnostic registrations, etc.)
● Implement systems to drive toward automation of the business, including key areas such as
farmer payouts, reporting of claims, incentive payments, and SMS/WhatsApp campaigns
● Visit the field to speak directly with Pula’s stakeholders, including farmers, agents, and
agrodealers, to determine the design for key products and features
● Liaise with call center agents and field agents to conduct key research and gain insights from
what’s happening at the agrodealer/farmer level
● Conduct User Acceptability Testing (UAT), providing the tech team with feedback on new
developments to ensure proper field deployment
● For key features, work closely with Pula’s Tech team to ensure a smooth process of development

● For key projects, ensure that information is synchronized across Tech and Ops teams at Pula and
major changes to rollouts/field work are implemented in a timely fashion

QUALIFICATIONS:
● You have a University degree

● You are willing to speak up independently when there is a problem to be solved
● You have the ability to translate concepts into logical, detailed, written action-plans
● You are on top of all your own tasks and are very well organized (your manager should never
have to remind you about tasks and deliverables, deadlines, email responses, etc.)
● You have the ability to professionally and respectfully dissent, and logically debate challenges
● You are fully comfortable with Google Suite and Microsoft Office
● You are able to quickly adapt to the team’s digital systems (e.g., Asana for task management,
