Mission Focus

Talk to anyone who works at Palantir and you’ll understand our mission focus. When we talk about mission, we mean making the world a better place—helping our users solve their hardest, most pressing problems. This mission is what makes the opportunity to work at Palantir unique.


We’re here to help the world’s largest organizations solve their most challenging problems—a task much bigger than the code we write. Everything we do and every person here works towards that mission, from Customer Support to QA to Recruiting to Operations, from our CEO to our receptionist.

We change the world for the better by writing software—software that reveals intelligence hidden within hairy, complex systems—but the software is merely the means to our end of solving the world’s biggest problems.

Palantir’s current customers are a mix of government agencies, financial institutions and non-profits. Collectively, their impact on the world is so large it’s difficult to measure, and we’re proud that our work contributes to that impact.

At Palantir we care deeply about leaving the world in better shape than we found it.

We’re lucky to work on software that can provide immediate benefit against any sort of data problem, public or private. We’ve created an entire team dedicated to helping out non-profit organizations that have the mandate and the data to make a difference. Palantir donates software, consulting and funds to organizations working on problems that we think are important to solve.
