Human Interface Design at Primer
We are different because we have to be. Our future world is a different world where Machine Learning will become a cornerstone of humanity. How humans harness this new era is our role – to rethink the old and define the new in creating the end-to-end UX for our products.
We design every human interaction – from psychological to visual and audible – creating products that are remarkable. Not just beautiful, but intuitive, usable, useful, delightful. The challenge is that there is very little precedent. We are here to define new paradigms where millions of pieces of data can be consumed in just one page, through narrative and data stories.
At Primer, everyone likes to get their hands dirty – we are all problem solvers, eager to work together to identify design problems and work out intelligent solutions.
The Experience Designer
Primer is at the forefront of Machine Learning. We endeavor to bring unity between machines and humans and to continue to be pioneers. We are driven to create tools of which people inquire, “how did they do that"?
Our products are focused on helping humans be better – allowing machines to learn from humans and humans to learn from machines. This is HCI at its most exposed. As a Senior UX Designer at Primer, you have your work cut out. Your job is to ensure the relationship between machines and humans is seamless. Your skills are utilized to overcome stigma, distrust, and any barrier our users may have when it comes to empowering Artificial Intelligence to make them better, faster, brilliant, human. Your job is to make our incredible algorithms tell the most beautiful narratives, and you will be tasked with inventing new paradigms every day where users can achieve the best results with the least possible steps.
You will need to partner with algorithm designers, product leaders and our clients. You will take a major role in ideation sessions, and it will be your job to translate the complex into simple solutions. We work hard and fast in an agile environment and you will be expected to be flexible but have a strong voice in enabling designs to sing. You must be passionate, a great communicator and motivating to those around you; at the same time, maintain the highest level of craftsmanship.
Why Us
Because why google things to get millions of results when you could get a primer on it.Because we collaborate. Because we allow everyone to have a voice.Because you won’t just work on one feature or a button design. You’ll have the satisfaction of taking products and new features from concept to their initial genesis to incorporation in a deployed product.Because our products help some of the world’s most influential organizations solve their highest impact problems.Because Primer's technology has an impact at the very core of humanity.

An Insider's view of Primer

What’s the vibe like in the office?

When I walk in the office, I just feel like "I belong" here and the vibe is always welcoming, positive and definitely COOPERATIVE!


Office Coordinator

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I’m in a role that requires me to engage across almost every part of Primer. Whether it’s a technical discussion with Product and Engineering, strategizing on an account with Sales, or working through the details of a contract with Finance, everyone embraces a “how can I help?” attitude.


Engagement Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

Not only have I been given the opportunity to take on more responsibilities by moving into a tech lead role, but executive leadership has been supportive by providing training and constant feedback. In such a short time, I feel like I’ve really leveled up and I’m excited to see where my time here takes me.


Tech Lead

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

“Constantly curious" is a company-wide value. We strive for the 10x improvement over the 10% improvement. My favorite curiosity enabler is our team-wide hack-weeks.This lets the team explore ideas unrelated to their deliverables. Many of these projects become part of our long-term product vision.


SVP, Engineering

What's something quirky about your company?

Puzzles have a special place in all of our hearts. From engineering problems to crosswords and cryptograms, there are always people around who are eager to help you solve them. When I see a bunch of the team gathered into an excited cluster, there is no doubt about what they're doing.
