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 insights built from the use of sensors and artificial intelligence, 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.


Why do we need a Digital Product Designer?

As both agriculture and the beekeeping industry are migrating towards digital products, building products that truly answer our customer needs is critical for our success. And our design team is central to making this successful. We are looking for an enthusiastic Product Designer with strong visual skills who wish to be part of a talented team of developers, electrical engineers, data-scientist and beekeepers. 

We need someone willing to learn the business, be an advocate for the user, and design the overall user experience. Furthermore, as bees are our first client, expect field visits. Nectar provides all the necessary equipment!


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!
