CTI is a St. Paul-based nonprofit that designs and distributes simple tools for small farmers and their communities in developing countries. Current programs are focused in Sub-Saharan Africa. We are looking for experienced mechanical engineers to assist with prototyping our postharvest processing tools, including a pearl millet thresher and multi-crop grinder.
