What’s Nectar?

Nectar’s mission is to help the beekeeping industry ensure honey bees health and secure our food supply. By translating the language of bees, we aim to bring bees, beekeepers and growers closer together.

Using technology and data-driven insights, we help beekeepers raise thriving beehives and optimize their operations, while providing growers key measurements to realize the full impact of honey bee pollination on their crops.

Our product aims to help commercial beekeepers reduce their operating costs, improve their beehives’ productivity and survival rate by remotely monitoring the hives health, behavior and strength. Using artificial intelligence, we augment the beekeepers’ decision making capacities to apply the right care at the right time.

Why do we need a Back-End Developer?

As Nectar is connecting more and more hives and ramping up new features, our platform needs to sustain this growth and perform optimally. To achieve a product that exceeds the expectations of our customers, Nectar believes that a robust platform, delivering data and analysis 24/7, is essential to its success. That's why we're looking for a motivated Back-End developer to build Nectar's platform and make a positive impact on our ecosystem and food supply chain.


In concrete terms, what does it look like?

As we are a recently funded start-up and still in its beginning, much remains to be done, both in terms of technology and marketing aspects. You will have the opportunity to build the architecture and develop the new features of the monitoring platform bee hives while having the right resources to do so.

Furthermore, as bees are our first client, expect field visits. Nectar provides all the necessary equipment and we promise it will bee amazing!
