This role is remote but requires either an overlap with EMEA or LATAM working hours.
Our product lets users join together disparate datasets, connect siloed marketing and sales SaaS tools, and construct automated “playbooks” for customer acquisition, leveraging the Modern Data Stack. The orchestration of these playbooks is complex and can only be done by mastering scalable APIs, ETLs, Reverse ETLs, distributed systems, and directed acyclic graphs (DAGs). We work with a modern technology stack (React/Node, Python) as well as cutting edge data technologies such as Prefect and dbt. Our systems processes terabytes daily and aim to provide sub-second response times to our customers’ queries and make batch processing behave like real-time.
After bootstrapping our way to almost $1M in revenue in our first year, Craft Ventures swooped in to lead our seed round in 2021 as we continued to demonstrate consistent 20.1% MoM growth. Early team members of Carta, Okta, Figma, Masterclass, Segment, Pilot.com, People.AI, and Skyhigh have also joined our investor network.
We are a small and dedicated, distributed team (~20 people), working on making advanced data infrastructure developed at large tech companies accessible to marketing and sales teams around the world. If you are fascinated by the software that power large technology companies such as Dropbox but want the challenges and freedom that come with working in a small startup, then a job at Primer might be for you.
What you’ll do
- Bring best-in-class approaches to building and maintaining high-volume, fault-tolerant APIs

- Drive and participate in major architectural initiatives
- Put the user front and center when delivering projects
- Contribute to and help shape the team’s roadmap
What you’ll need
- BS/MS/PhD in Computer Science, a related field, or equivalent work experience.

What’s in it for you?

What is the interview process like?
We pride ourselves on being respectful of your time.
