You too can be a part of our movement, and help us lift one million smallholder farmers out of poverty by 2025!

Why Babban Gona?

Young talents are frustrated working in organizations that do not value their talent, do not enable them to rapidly grow, or enable them to meaningfully impact the world. We understand that frustration and at Babban Gona, we have built an organization where young talents are rewarded for their impact, can rapidly grow in their career and wake up every day knowing they are changing the world, as part of the earth’s highest impact business.

We offer equal opportunity to be part of a great mission and impact hundreds of thousands of families. You will work with exceptionally brilliant minds and thought leaders with the opportunity to forge an awesome career path. You will also have the opportunity to explore new terrains and try out new fields through our job rotation program.

At Babban Gona, you will work with the world’s most talented software engineers, designers, agriculturists and thought leaders to tackle the problem of insecurity and youth unemployment.

Who We Are

We are lucky to have a super-passionate and committed team who have set the standard for how we work every day, enabling us to dramatically scale our impact. Building on our core values, we have developed a set of principles to guide our behaviors and actions individually as a person and collectively as a team.

Slide 1

We are obsessed with our farmer members. We are always willing to go above and beyond to better our members’ lives. We know that to achieve this, we must have a great team; and to have a great team, we must continuously coach and mentor our people to ensure their success.

Slide 2

We hire and develop the best! We look for individuals that can identify a problem, develop a solution, develop a plan to implement the solution, and execute the plan to permanently solve the problem. We develop leaders who develop more leaders!

Slide 3

We insist on the highest standards. We have relentlessly high standards - many may think these standards are unreasonably high. At Babban Gona, our passing grade is not B+, B, or C, it is A. We are curious and love to learn.

Slide 4

We have the courage to disagree but commit to our word. It is our duty to respectfully challenge decisions when we disagree, even when doing so is difficult and tiring. We do not agree just for the sake of being friendly. Once a decision is determined, we commit completely.

Slide 5

We know that “simple” scales faster than “complex”; hence we always look for ways to eliminate complexity and simplify our processes. We are NOT a bureaucracy; we learn from everywhere and everyone. We begin with the end in mind; and we use metrics and data to have a very detailed understanding of our area, and areas that we depend on.

Slide 6

We develop detailed plans that are communicated clearly. We have strong judgment and good instincts. We seek diverse perspectives and work to disconfirm our beliefs. We are not afraid of failure; we learn from it and openly share our insights to ensure we never make the same mistake twice.

Slide 7

We listen closely, speak honestly, and treat others respectfully. We are not afraid to openly admit when we were wrong. To earn trust, we manage expectations and we ALWAYS keep our promises. We never blame others for our own failings; and we share praise with our team.

Slide 8

We just do It. We value calculated risk-taking and quick action. We do not punish team members for mistakes when they demonstrate our culture of just doing it. However, we integrate real-time data systems to provide our team the information to make better decisions and to quickly adjust a decision if it is wrong.

Slide 9

We do more with less. Yes, we always accomplish more with less. We do not reward people for building empires of people and having a big budget, we reward people for doing more with less!

Slide 10

We deliver results. We focus on the key tasks that scale our impact, by increasing the number of members we serve and how much we are able to better their lives. We work hard, we work smart and we work fast. We appreciate hard work and effort, but reward results. When setbacks occur, and they will, we rise to the occasion, power through, and NEVER settle.
