A World-Changing Company

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.

The Role

Full Stack Software Engineers at Palantir architect the interfaces that our customers use. We build software that helps our customers answer their most critical questions: what is causing the products we manufacture to fail? Are our traders engaging in risky activity? How do we ensure a stable supply chain of vaccines during a pandemic?

Our Product Development organization is made up of small teams of Software Engineers. Each team focuses on a specific aspect of a product. As a member of Foundry Core Platform, you will be working on one of the teams that build the developer tools and compute infrastructure at the heart of Foundry. The tools we develop enable technical users in Foundry to make the best of their data, develop operational applications, and operate production systems.

You will work closely with technical and non-technical counterparts to understand our customers' problems and build products that tackle them. We encourage movement among teams to share context, skills, and experience, so you'll learn about many different aspects of each product.
