Job Description

As a Full Stack Engineer, you will have the opportunity to make a wide impact on our codebase, tooling and coding standards. As one of our first engineers in the UK, you'll be a key part of establishing the culture and mission of our presence here, bringing a collaborative and proactive energy to get us off the ground. You are an experienced engineer who works across the entire stack, connecting brilliant user experiences with a powerful, scalable back-end.
Primer believes in creating an environment that encourages and creates opportunities for growth. Whether it’s helping create and contribute to a set of architectural principles, or pushing us to adopt high-impact OSS, we need engineers to help us make those decisions.
About Primer
The world is changing at an accelerating rate and understanding the shifting landscapes has never been more critical. Primer is the premier artificial-intelligence powered platform that allows humans to get information that they need, instantly, in ways that until now have not been possible. We believe that truth is knowable; our mission is to free the curious to be their most human. We are building machines that can read natural language text documents, understand them, correlate them into events, and share what they learn by writing their own natural language text documents. 
At Primer we use machine learning and natural language processing to automate the analysis of very large corpora of unstructured text. We build systems that read documents, extract insights, and write reports comparable to those of a human analyst. Our objective is to help our customers understand the world around them –– from geopolitical events and scientific research to changes in the risk profiles of companies. Our clients include some of the world’s largest corporations, financial institutions, and government agencies. 
You can learn more about Primer's technology and the sort of problems we solve at our blog, as well as recent media coverage of our work. Primer was chosen by the World Economic Forum among a select group of Technology Pioneers.

From your first day, you’ll drive the technical implementation of a major feature. What you'll do:

    • Collaborate with design and product to build functional and delightful product experiences
    • Ensure the technical feasibility of UI/UX designs
    • Build out storage, backend, and frontend layers for new features and product

Experiences we like

    • Strong knowledge of core JavaScript, React, Redux, and HTML5 / CSS3
    • Expertise in python, web servers, and data stores
    • Experience with the development and long-term maintenance of SaaS products
    • Proficiency writing unit and integration tests
    • 5+ years of professional full stack development

Bonus Points

    • Numerical methods and/or machine learning experience
    • Hands-on DevOps experience with organization-level cloud infrastructure
    • Elasticsearch experience, especially as applied to information retrieval and search relevance

What We Offer

      • Smart, engaged co-workers who are at the top of their game
      • Honest and open environment for exchange of ideas
      • Real customers with global name recognition + healthy sales pipeline
      • Proactive learning and teaching opportunities via individual book allowances, tech talks, and brown bag lunches
