Palantir builds the world’s leading software for data-driven decisions and operations

By bringing the right data to the people who need it, our platforms empower our partners to develop lifesaving drugs, forecast supply chain disruptions, locate missing children, and more.

Make an impact on the world.

From airlines to public health organizations, car manufacturers to the military, the world’s most important institutions rely on a solid data foundation to make good decisions fast. We help our partners stop terrorist attacks, discover new medicines, locate rogue traders, and more.

NCMEC

Last year alone, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) received 16.9 million reports of images and videos depicting child sexual abuse. With a team of just 30 analysts to sort through as many as 60,000 reports a day, timely triage is a challenge — and when it comes to rescuing victims, every second counts.

Since 2010, Palantir has partnered with NCMEC, providing our data integration software in support of its mission to help find missing children, reduce child sexual exploitation, and prevent future victimization.

COVID-19

Organizations across the healthcare system are currently deploying Palantir to accelerate and strengthen their ability to combat the COVID-19 outbreak, from tracing the spread of the virus to accelerating production of critical medical supplies. As one example, we are working with suppliers of medical equipment, and with the government agencies responsible for distributing it, to manage the unprecedented strain on their supply chains.

Medical suppliers are using Palantir to understand demand changes in real time, trace system bottlenecks to their source, and optimize decisions under challenging circumstances. Governments and manufacturers are also modeling scenarios and decisions in Palantir to understand and plan for their potential effects.

Team Rubicon

In September 2018, Hurricane Florence devastated North and South Carolina in the United States. The storm was responsible for thousands of displacements, over a million power outages, and an estimated $17 billion in damage. To help victims remove felled trees from their properties, muck out flooded houses, and tarp damaged roofs, Team Rubicon deployed 1,000 volunteers on the ground.

Team Rubicon used Palantir Gotham to combine publicly available flood data with weather information and social vulnerability census data to find the communities in greatest need. In the field, Team Rubicon Incident Command and volunteers used data to triage incoming help requests, dispatch assessment and work teams, and produce sharable daily metrics and reports.

  • Gotham

    Palantir Gotham is an enterprise software platform for data integration, analysis, and decision making. Originally designed for the US intelligence community, a variety of government organizations now use Gotham to integrate, manage, secure, and analyze their data in service of critical missions. Tools like maps, graphs, and charts help users analyze the movement of illicit goods, vectors of foodborne illness, or flows of payments in fraud schemes, to name a few examples.

  • Rubix

    Rubix is our internal effort to rebuild our cloud architecture around Kubernetes. The majority of our cloud instances are dedicated to computation, so we needed to create a secure, scalable, and intelligent scheduling and execution engine for Spark and other distributed compute frameworks. We’ve now successfully rolled out Rubix to the majority of our fleet, and have engaged in an open-source effort to add Kubernetes support to Spark.

  • Blueprint

    Blueprint is an open-sourced design system implemented as a collection of composable React components and optimized for desktop applications. Blueprint offers a new approach for both kickstarting and scaling product design, whether you’re an individual, a small startup, or a large organization.

Our Values

The best idea wins

No matter what team you’re on, Palantirians approach every problem with an engineering mindset. We speak up when things aren’t right, evaluate ideas on their merits, and fix what’s broken. All voices are equal — we hire people to have an opinion and solve problems, regardless of their role or seniority.

Own the outcome

We are in the business of delivering outcomes, and empower our employees to bring those outcomes to life. Whether you’re on a dev team, a business team working with customers, or an internal team helping other Palantirians, success isn’t a matter of following procedures or checking boxes — success is delivering something that works.

Focus on the mission

We view software as a means of effecting change in the world, not as an end unto itself. Our mission is to empower our users, who are grappling with hard problems across public health, manufacturing, defense, and disaster relief. We do this by building software that enables those people to more quickly, easily, and accurately harness data to do their jobs.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Palantir, we are driven by innovation and approach hard problems with unconventional solutions and creativity. We know that working with people from a wide range of backgrounds, perspectives, and lived experiences is critical to achieving our best outcomes, but that isn’t where it ends. We work every day to bring together a truly diverse group of people, to provide a supportive environment where others are receptive to and curious about new ideas, and where everyone has an opportunity to learn, grow, and find success.

Our initiatives

  • Path Internship

    Palantir Path is a summer internship program designed to give college juniors from underrepresented communities a path into technology as a career. Understanding that not everyone has access to technical opportunities, we provide opportunity and exposure through hands-on learning and mentorship alongside engineers and analysts. Path interns will interact with clients, get professional development from fellow Palantirians, and help influence decisions that impact our business and our customers’ missions.
