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.
Palantir is seeking a multi-talented individual to help build and deliver documentation to a growing user base. As a member of the technical writing team, you will dig deep into technical details with our engineering team and learn as much as possible about our customers and their analytical needs. Then you will translate your understanding into documentation that is comprehensive, precise, and easy to consume.
As an intern, you’ll be exposed to the same set of projects, requirements, and environment as our full-time employees. We’re looking for co-op students as well as summer interns.
