Cole Bemis

Senior Research Engineer

Hi, I'm Cole. I'm a software designer and engineer with a passion for building things for people who build things.

Before joining GitHub Next, I spent four years working on GitHub's open-source design system, Primer. During my tenure on the Primer team, I helped ship GitHub dark mode, redesigned Octicons, and Primer React.

I grew up in Portland, Oregon and currently live in San Francisco, California. I enjoy skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing, playing piano, and spending time outdoors with my friends and family.
