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 & technology. Our software has been used to stop terrorist attacks, discover new medicines, gain an edge in global financial markets, & more. If these types of projects excite you, we'd love for you to join us.
Forward Deployed Software Engineers (FDSEs) work directly with customers to quickly understand their greatest problems & design & implement solutions to use data against them. Our customers rely on Palantir's platforms for some of their most critical operations, & projects often start with an open ended question like "How do we evaluate wildfire risk & optimize a power grid as a result" or "How do we quickly assess our food supply chain & modify it to deliver life saving assistance on time?" As an FDSE, you'll apply your problem solving ability, creativity, & technical skills to help organizations use their data to drive a real impact in the world. You'll have the opportunity to gain rare insight into & contribute to some of the world's most important industries & institutions.
As an FDSE your responsibilities look similar to those of a startup CTO. You'll work in small teams with minimal supervision & own end-to-end execution of high stakes projects. Your day might span discussing architecture with fellow engineers, wrangling massive-scale data, coding a custom web app, speaking with customer executives, or establishing strategy for your team.
