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 IoT and AI models -  will lead to a future where pollinators are considered an essential factor in feeding our planet.

About the job

You will work on critical components of our platform dedicated to beekeepers. You will collaborate with hardware engineers, data scientists, and designers, while directly being supervised by our lead software developer. It’s a unique opportunity to learn and work on projects that have an impact. Both technically and on our ecosystem. 

Responsibilities

  • Work on 1 to 2 long-term projects to be decided based on your background and your experience. 
  • For example, new features, deployment and maintenance tools, performance optimization projects, visualization, etc.
  • Contribute to technological choices and architecture decisions.
  • Collaborate with Nectar’s developers, data scientists and hardware engineers as well as participate actively in problem-solving.
