Are you an engineer who wants to make an impact? At Palantir, we’re passionate about building software that solves problems. We’re working to build a future in which public institutions, commercial enterprises, and non-profit organizations can use data to function as they were designed — to fulfill the mandates with which they’ve been entrusted, to deliver value to customers, and to distribute aid to those most in need.

Why join us?
  • Work on important problems. We partner with the world’s most important institutions to transform how they use data and technology. Our software has been used to stop terrorist attacks, discover new medicines, locate rogue traders, and more.

  • Leave convention at the door. As a company of creative thinkers working with established enterprises, we’re outsiders in a world where insiders reign. We bring perspectives and ideas all our own, and create an environment and culture that no one else can replicate.

  • Bring your ideas to life. From day one, we want you to contribute — not just to the codebase, but to our strategy and culture. Palantir is a place where you’re empowered to imagine and build epic things, from a new feature to a new product roadmap.

  • Be challenged — and supported. Our culture helps Palantirians thrive even as they're challenged, starting with our two-week Onboarding course. In-office yoga, Tai Chi, and meditation will keep you feeling balanced, while Hack Week, happy hours, and trivia nights will keep you plugged in to our vibrant community.

Technical Challenges

Data integration is the seminal problem of the digital age. From airlines to public health organizations, car manufacturers to the military, the world’s most important institutions rely on a solid data foundation to make good decisions fast.

At Palantir, we reimagine how people use data. Our platforms empower entire organizations to answer complex questions without requiring them to master querying languages or statistical modeling, erasing the boundaries between data, decision making, and day-to-day operations.

Projects you might work on
  • Palantir Foundry radically reimagines the way enterprises interact with data by amplifying and extending the power of data integration. With Foundry, anyone can source, fuse, and transform data into any shape they desire. Business analysts become data engineers — and leaders in their organization’s data revolution.

    Foundry’s back end includes a suite of best-in-class data integration capabilities: data provenance, git-style versioning semantics, granular access controls, branching, transformation authoring, and more. But these powers are not limited to the back-end IT shop.

    In Foundry, tables, applications, reports, presentations, and spreadsheets operate as data integrations in their own right. Access controls, transformation logic, and data quality flow from original data source to intermediate analysis to presentation in real time. Every end product created in Foundry becomes a new data source that other users can build upon. And the enterprise data foundation goes where the business drives it.

  • The Palantir Gotham platform comprises a suite of capabilities for integrating many different data sources for secure, collaborative analysis. The platform serves as an enterprise knowledge base, containing the full record of an organization's collective analysis.

    On the front-end, Palantir Gotham provides a suite of integrated tools optimized for semantic, temporal, geospatial, and full-text analysis. Users can drag and drop data objects from one application to the next for a frictionless, multi-faceted analytic experience.

  • The Production Infrastructure team's goal is to accelerate the end-to-end engineering lifecycle at Palantir by building tools and platforms that make it easier to create, deploy, and iterate on secure and highly available software. As a Software Engineer on the Deployment Infrastructure team, you will reimagine how our company builds and deploys software and how we use data to make decisions, then build the products and infrastructure to enable that new approach.

Working at Palantir

The best idea wins. No matter what team you’re on, Palantirians approach every problem with an engineering mindset. We speak up when things aren’t right, evaluate ideas on their merits, and fix what’s broken. All voices are equal here — we hire people to have an opinion and solve problems, regardless of their role or seniority.

Own the outcome. We are in the business of delivering outcomes. Whether you’re on a dev team, a business team working with customers, or an internal team helping other Palantirians, success isn’t a matter of following procedures or checking boxes — success is delivering something that works. That’s why we work on flat, decentralized teams, each with their own decision-making authority, and empower our people to own their own outcomes.

Focus on the mission. We view software as a means of effecting change in the world, not as an end unto itself. Our mission is to empower our users, who are grappling with hard problems across public health, manufacturing, defense, and disaster relief. We do this by writing software that enables those people to more quickly, easily, and accurately harness data to do their jobs.
