A World-Changing Company

At Palantir, we’re passionate about building software that solves problems. We partner with the most important institutions in the world to transform how they use data and technology. Our software has been used to stop terrorist attacks, discover new medicines, gain an edge in global financial markets, and more. If these types of projects excite you, we'd love for you to join us.

The Role

Palantir’s dynamic in-house legal team works to proactively address legal issues so that Palantir can continue to drive positive impact in the world. As International Government Counsel, you will be a key contributor to both the Legal Ninja team and the company as a whole - working as a generalist on every issue Palantir faces.

As International Government Counsel, you’ll be an expert on the intricate details of the contracts and subcontracts that enable Palantir to implement its cutting-edge technology to solve real-world problems. Your work will involve partnership with our engineers abroad as they build out Palantir's footprint across the globe. In this role, you will take ownership over problems, turning ill-defined objectives into epic outcomes and working with agility to push deals across the finish line.
