London is home to our first office in Europe, and serves as a jumping off point to our growing operations throughout the region. A truly international community, Palantirians based in London hail from the United Kingdom, Sweden, Poland, France, and many other countries. When we’re not working with customers on site, you can find us grabbing lunch in Soho Square or racing around the scooter track on each floor.

How much time do you have? To pick just one reason I love working at Palantir London, I can’t imagine a better view than from my seat on the 7th floor, which overlooks Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the Shard, and the London Eye (if you don’t know what these things are, come visit!). The office is off a gorgeous, grassy square that’s great for syncs on a rare sunny day. It’s also in one of the best parts of the city for dining. Ok, that was three reasons…
We have a couple of really good traditions. First, we have Friday-night jam where we set up a full band (with a drum kit and everything) in the office, and from there we just…jam. We have biannual Engineering Dojos: biannual coding retreats where we go somewhere in the countryside for the weekend to sharpen our coding skills. We’re often found walking back and forth between our office and Nude Espresso, which is conveniently located right on Soho Square and is our equivalent of Philz.
London is by far my favourite office. There’s a strong sense of community and people are happy to hang out and really spend time together.
