Job Description

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.

Primer

We build machines that read and write Organizations today face a problem. The amount of data we are collecting is growing exponentially. At the same time the number of human analysts who can read it is at best growing linearly. We require new ways to close this intelligence gap and accelerate our understanding of the world. Primer is a machine intelligence company that uses machine learning and natural language processing to automate the analysis of large datasets. We build systems that read documents, discover insights and automatically generate reports comparable to those of a human analyst.
