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 maximize the impact of honey bee pollination on their crops.

Why do we need an Accounting & Finance Specialist?

Nectar is growing fast, and we need to support this scaling. We believe a meticulous Accounting & Finance Specialist dedicated to supporting our management team with business development, accounting, fundraising, and operations can help us increase our capacity to execute and help Nectar get to the next level.

This is why we're looking for a rigorous Specialist in order to refine the company’s accounting processes and deploy a well-oiled fundraising machine. It’s a unique opportunity to make a concrete impact on beekeepers day to day and on our food ecosystem. Furthermore, as bees are our first client, expect field visits. Nectar provides all the necessary equipment!
