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 a Front End Developer?

Our platform is the interface on which beekeepers and growers interact with our technology - it’s at the heart of our value proposition. Software development is therefore crucial to Nectar's success. This is why Nectar is looking to onboard a purpose-driven front end developer to complete the development effort of our web platform and bring our technology to the next level to make an impact on our ecosystem and food supply.
