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 QA & Support Engineer?

As Nectar is connecting more and more hives and ramping up new features, our platform and hardware need to sustain this growth and perform optimally. To achieve a product that exceeds the expectations of our customers, Nectar believes that reliability of our hardware and software is key to its success. That's why we're looking for a thorough QA & Support Engineer to implement and execute test protocoles on our products 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. As Nectar's QA & Support Engineer, you will work with our hardware and software team to elaborate and execute a whole array of tests while analyzing and documenting your results. We expect that you will challenge our designs and assumptions to ensure that our customers have access to high quality products.

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