Who we are?

PRIME is a tech start-up with a mission! We are building the leading analytics platform of the future that helps large companies (our clients) to stay on top of their game in a world that is increasingly data-driven. We make this happen by providing our clients with valuable (business) insights via our very own analytics platform. Among other things, we generate nifty reports, perform advanced analysis and enable the discovery of innovative solutions. We strongly believe that true success lies in ’empowering people’ and therefore put personalization, intuitive design and making difficult things look easy at the heart of everything we do

We have a professional, progressive culture, in which ambition, intrinsic motivation and cooperation are our key values. We are transparent, innovative and challenge each other to achieve maximum results. Last but not least, we consider work and play as two sides of the same coin and believe in having some serious fun!

What will you be doing and learning?
What your typical day at the office would look like? There is one simple answer to that question: There is no such thing as a typical day! Of course, we’re working agile, such as sprint planning, refinement and review sessions, but you are the master of your own work schedule.

Let’s say you are working on a sprint item to implement a very cool new feature that will allow our customers to create competitive advantage with the use of their data. During the refinement session you had a great idea on how to turn the insights created by the data science team into easy to use and understandable visualizations. You decide to use some new libraries as they enable you to create the required insights, which are also in line with our user experience guidelines. Next you align with the data engineers and front enders on how the integration will look like end to end.

Finally you start programming your solution in the back-end on your own feature branch. When you commit your code, a set of tests is run automatically and when they all succeed, the code is deployed to staging environment for further manual tests. The product owner together with the rest of the team will review the new functionality and decide to promote it to development and soon after to master! Voila, a fully automated CI CD cycle.

Next to implementing new features, you continuously try out new technologies, challenge your team and rethink our development strategy and roadmap. Your input is critical to the success of each team member and that of the platform.
