Business Operations – Talent Services /Permanent

Combining high-scale operations with digital intelligence, Komaza is revolutionizing African forestry – unlocking the potential for small-scale farmers to serve booming wood markets.

We’re currently planting commercial-grade forests at a rate of over 1 million trees per year, expanding our farmer-base by 5,000+ – and we’re growing fast. To date, we’ve planted over 7 million total trees with 22,000 farmers, making us Kenya’s largest industrial tree planter. We hold the only sustainable blueprint for meeting Africa’s $30B wood supply crisis. Smallholder farms offer nearly limitless land, and can establish a hectare of trees for far less than big plantations.

We have been recognized with numerous awards and investments, including The Climate Policy Initiative, The Nature Conservancy, Forbes, and Novastar Ventures.
