A World-Changing Company
At Palantir, we're passionate about building software that solves real problems. We partner with the most important institutions in the world to transform how they use their data. Our technology 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 Intern, your responsibilities look similar to those at a small startup, with the resources, stability & mentorship of an established tech company: 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.
FDSE Interns are treated just like full time engineers, with significant freedom & ownership over their work. Interns take responsibility for real world projects & outcomes that our customers rely on.
