We’re opening the doors to Palantir’s new office in Tokyo. Japan’s distinctive engineering culture is a natural fit for our approach to digital transformation, and we’re excited to bring the power of Palantir’s software to the Japanese market.

Find out why people love working in Tokyo
Tokyo is hands down one of the most culturally rich and fantastically energizing cities in the world. The opportunity to work for Palantir in Tokyo has been nothing short of amazing. Being able to experience Tokyo first-hand while simultaneously helping solve challenging, meaningful problems is almost surreal — in a really good way.
The Japan office feels like a new start-up within Palantir: a team of people who are united in a common goal, and also in a love for tracking down the best Italian food, curry, and coffee in the gourmet capital of the world. (Occasionally sushi too.) We’re all here for different reasons, we all bring something different to the table, and together we can take on any data challenge that this big city has to offer.
I just transferred to the Tokyo office from Paris (I’m a Japanese-French ハーフbonjour!) and it already feels like home. The people I work with, a truly international group, have created a strong community where belonging and growth are prioritized. My colleagues at Palantir Japan have become mentors, collaborators, and friends, and I feel lucky to work with them on important and challenging data problems every day.
I’ve had the opportunity to work for Palantir in Australia, USA, and Japan. It’s always a thrill to be part of a growing office. In the Tokyo office I’ve been very lucky to be surrounded by some of the smartest people I’ve ever worked with, and with whom I feel great comradery. Doing this work in a bustling, never-sleeping city like Tokyo makes it all the more exciting.
The chance to shape the culture and growth of a new office in a new region is a rare and exciting one. And being able to do so with such inspiring people in such an amazing city is truly a dream come true. You can really feel the energy in the office daily as everyone is working together to forge a path forward for Palantir Japan. I can’t wait to see what the future holds!
