Being a member of Palantir's Engineering department is an experience unlike any other. Our home is a true startup: the intersection between efficiency and ingenuity where every voice is heard, every idea is considered, and every member makes a tangible impact.
We are looking for a writer who is comfortable with Java and APIs (or perhaps a developer who likes to write) to create documentation that explains how to customize our data analysis products. If you were born to code and test examples, update Javadoc for public APIs, and describe enterprise architecture, you might be the one that we want. Your efforts will put the power of Palantir in the hands of developers worldwide.
Work with engineers to document features, APIs, and CLIs
Create and test example code, or synthesize a generic example from a specific case
Organize and write technical overviews and tutorials
Use infrastructure tools for integrated coding, issue tracking, and build management
BS or equivalent experience
Experience documenting APIs and system architecture
Familiarity with Java or another object-oriented language
Excellent writing samples
Ability to work with engineers and internal specs to research new features
