What Nectar is all about

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 an Product Designer?

Our web app is the interface on which beekeepers and growers interact with our technology - it’s at the heart of our value proposition. To achieve a product that exceeds the expectations of our customers, Nectar is convinced that an experience corresponding to the reality of beekeeping is essential to its success. That's why we're looking for a motivated product designer to design the Nectar web application and positively impact our ecosystem and food supply chain.

In concrete terms, what does it look like?

As a product designer at Nectar, you will be at the heart of strategic decisions. As we are a recently funded start-up and still in early-stage, much remains to be done, both in terms of technology and marketing aspects.

Using iterative processes, your primary focus will be on designing the look and feel of Nectar’s digital products. Beyond the creation of intuitive visuals, you will be responsible for creating the best experience within our interface, in addition to impact Nectar’s visual brand and identity.

Nectar, as a whole, has a strong focus on user-experience on all aspects of the company, so we’re looking for someone with a strong sensitivity to UX design. You will have the opportunity to surpass yourself by designing the web application according to feedback from the sales team and customers in the field. In the future, product owner responsibilities may be added to the role to enable you to be the master of Nectar’s products.

In addition, as bees are our first customers, expect field trips. Nectar provides all the necessary equipment and we promise it will bee amazing!
