Back-End Developer

Montreal HQ (Hybrid Work)

Nectar’s Goal

A third of the world's crop production depends on honeybee pollination, yet beekeepers lose 40% of their hives each year.

To be part of the solution, our team's mission is to provide beekeepers and growers the data-driven tools needed to raise thriving honeybee colonies. We believe that the technology being built by our team - including sensors and AI models -  will lead to a future where pollinators are considered an essential factor in feeding our planet.

Build products that matter

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 beekeepers and growers, 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.
