Grace Wang, Senior, Computer Science and Business, University of Pennsylvania
Forward Deployed Engineer
Grace spent her summer working out of both the Palo Alto and New York offices, where she wrote a dependency tracker for the front-end of the Palantir Metropolis platform, which would be used by one of our biggest customers. Metropolis features a dashboard where users can embed charts, graphs, and other dynamically updating widgets that present data from different documents in the system. Grace’s project created a unified change history for documents and their dependencies, which allows users to diagnose and fix any presentation problems with their dashboard.
“I got the sense that my project was really high-priority. It was especially cool the last few weeks, because my app was getting in front of users. People work really long hours, especially on BD, but nobody complains because they really like their work and believe in the mission.”
