Engineering at Primer

Engineering team and processes

Our engineers are owners. They solve big problems to deliver value to customers. Product and infrastructure teams work in sprints to execute on our roadmap and work towards our shared goals.

Technical Challenges

We ingest large data sets and run a variety of ML algorithms against them to produce meaningful results. We're constantly improving, extending, adding, and tuning new algorithms, and the whole product has to be fast and stable.

Projects you might work on
  • Build out our streaming architecture to ingest, process, and index data in real time.

  • Speed up our analysis pipeline from 15 minutes to under a minute through parallelization and pre-processing of data.

  • Redesign our result storage system to enable incremental loading of analysis results.
