Getting Hired

At Palantir, we’ll give you access to important problems and the freedom to solve them. If you want that kind of responsibility, then we want to work with you. Here are some resources to help you find your way.

Our Interview Process

Across all of our teams, the interview process starts with one or two phone interviews. These calls are conversational and typically last twenty to forty-five minutes, with a focus on your prior experiences, domain knowledge, and personal interest in Palantir. We also leave time for you to ask us questions.

Engineering interviews tend to include technical questions about data structures, algorithms, and software engineering.

We want you to succeed, which is why we’ve written about the technical side of our interviews in a series of Interviewing Tips:

Meet The Team

If the phone interviews go well, it’s time to come to Palo Alto, meet our team and have an on-site interview. Our culture is important to us, so we’re careful to make sure that the fit is right on both sides. We want to learn about who you really are. We promise if you bring your real self, we’ll do the same.

Travel Guide

If you're coming a long way, don't worry; we’ll coordinate all aspects of your trip. Also keep in mind that we’re a laid-back company and Palo Alto is warm and sunny, so wear whatever you feel most comfortable in. We focus on you, not your apparel.
