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.
Forward Deployed Software Engineers (FDSEs) work directly with
customers to quickly understand their greatest problems and design
and implement solutions to use data against them. Our customers
rely on Palantir s platforms for some of their most critical
operations, and projects often start with an open ended question
like "How do we evaluate wildfire risk and optimize a power grid as
a result" or "How do we quickly assess our food supply chain and
modify it to deliver life saving assistance on time?" As an FDSE,

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 and contribute to some of the world s most important
industries and institutions.
