I’ve had the great fortune to do a six-month rotation in our office in Ebisu. Here, I’ve learned how to build a new office from the bottom up, while drawing on our wealth of global expertise and products. I’m tremendously optimistic about our future in Japan, and our ability to become a valuable partner to a growing set of Japanese corporations.
Our team in Tokyo has the unique opportunity to forge Palantir’s growth in Japan. In addition to the team on the ground, Palantirians from all around the world come to Tokyo for rotations. The level of autonomy and commitment to excellence here is unparalleled. We all make an impact, both on our work and on our culture. And we get to do it in Ebisu, which is awesome.
I’ve had a phenomenal experience working in our Tokyo office. Here, I’ve been able to contribute to the office’s expansion from the bottom up, while soaking in everything the city has to offer. Every day, I learn something new and encounter interesting challenges that keep me on my toes!
The Tokyo office is designed for doing impactful work. Despite being in the middle of one of the busiest cities in the world, with great restaurants and some of the best coffee around, our office feels like a slice of Silicon Valley. Our casual work environment helps me focus on getting things done, although it never hurts to decompress at a coffee shop nearby!
My time spent at the Tokyo office has been one of the best experiences I’ve had at Palantir. In Tokyo, my work impacts deployments all around the world. At the same time, I get the opportunity to live, learn, and enjoy the richness of Japan. Palantir’s Tokyo office is neither a typical Japanese company, nor a typical American company in Japan; it’s a wholly unique experience that offers the best of both worlds.
