Technical Writer: Internship

Palo Alto, CA

Palantir is seeking a multi-talented individual to help build and deliver documentation to a growing user base.

Then you will translate your understanding into documentation that is comprehensive, precise, and easy to consume.

  • Work with developers and support engineers to understand new features and how they're used

  • Great writing samples
  • Passion for the written word, and especially for clarity and precision
  • Familiarity with Java or another object-oriented language (C++, C#); coding skills a plus
