The Next Step

You’ve done your homework, now apply your knowledge where it is needed most by building technology that can change the world for the better.

Apply Your Knowledge

Your mind is bursting with theory, facts, and fictions. Now it's time to apply your expertise against real world problems, with real world outcomes. When it comes to working with the world’s most critical institutions, we believe that human-driven, computer-assisted analysis is more powerful and effective than fully automated approaches. Belief in the power of the human mind is built into our technology from the codebase up. Our software is crafted by talented engineers, tested and used by domain experts in the field, and supported by a company of passionate individuals.

Keep On Learning

No man (or woman) is an island at Palantir. While you work, you’ll learn from your mentor, you’ll learn from your team, you’ll learn from our iron chef and the designer down the hall. Bookshelves scattered throughout the offices offer titles to take home on programming, productivity, and history. And you’ll be able to contribute back to this culture of learning. No matter what your interests, you’ll find someone interested to hear more. We believe that education doesn’t end with a diploma, it just gets better.

Open Positions

Full Stack
Software Engineers

Full Stack Software Engineers are involved in all parts of the product lifecycle. They brainstorm, design, prototype, plan, execute, and ship. They brainstorm to understand and explore our customers’ problem space, then work with a team to design solutions to the hardest problems they discover. They rapidly prototype ideas to validate their designs, and develop plans to execute on complex projects. They use Javascript/Coffeescript for client and server web work, Handlebars for HTML templating, LESS to make our products beautiful, and Java for complicated backend processing.
