About Nectar

We are on a mission to provide all pets with the quality health care they need from veterinarians and their caretakers. We aim to do this by modernizing the veterinary tech stack throughout a pet patient’s lifecycle from patient identification to preventive care, medical care, and monitoring & lifestyle. Existing vet tools are frustratingly hard to use, lack key features, and look like they are from the 90s. Our vision for a next-generation cloud platform includes a comprehensive medical record management system with delightful client communication tools. Predictive analytics will unlock clinical efficiencies, equip veterinarians with relevant medical data, and inform pet owners of proactive, tailored insights into their pets’ health. 

We just launched our MVP with veterinary clinic customers who love our product. We are looking to take our product to the next level, and design/ build a suite of creative, differentiated features in 2023.

Product Manager role

We are looking for a PM who is ready to take the next step in their career and drive the full design-development-iteration cycle across large swaths of the product. The ideal candidate is ready to take the reins on their career and build a product, team, and culture from the ground up. In 2023, you will work on creative challenges such as ways to optimize the capture/exposure of medical data to streamline the veterinary workflow and unlock the full impact of treatments, without dealing with the red tape and regulations that you would face in human medicine (e.g., HIPAA).

  • Work with UX/UI designer to draft wireframes & product specs
  • Drive sprint planning, QA, & daily standup with developers
