About Palantir Technologies

At Palantir, we’re passionate about building software that solves problems. We’re working to build a future in which public institutions, commercial enterprises, and non-profit organizations can use data to function as they were designed — to fulfill the mandates with which they’ve been entrusted, to deliver value to customers, and to distribute aid to those most in need.

What do we do?

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.

- In healthcare, we work with government research agencies and pharmaceutical companies to comb through research papers and clinical trial studies and surface patterns that could lead to the next medical breakthrough.
- In disaster relief, we donate our software and our time to non-profit partners who work every day to help the world's most vulnerable in the wake of disasters like Hurricane Harvey.
- In manufacturing, we work with auto manufacturers to surface trending defects so teams can resolve issues 80% faster, improving customer satisfaction.
- In defense, we help missions share intelligence and plan operations across geographically dispersed locations, over disadvantaged communications, and under rapidly changing mission conditions.
- In finance, we help banks locate inside traders and integrate client records, reducing tax, AML, and risk exposure.


Forward Deployed Software Engineer Intern

June 2022 - September 2022 Washington, DC
“As a delta intern at Palantir, I was able to have incredible impact that I could not have found at any other company. I worked on one of Palantir's federal heath projects and by the middle to end of my internship, I was meeting directly with clients from the CDC and presenting my work for feedback. I chose to intern at Palantir because I wanted to have client interaction in addition to coding, and seeing the direct impacts of my work was very rewarding. Working as an intern gave me plenty of ways to grow both personally and professionally while feeling supported by the other interns and coworkers. There were also plenty of opportunities to travel to different offices and client locations. Overall, I had a great time during my internship and would highly recommend applying! The mission and drive at Palantir are hard to find anywhere else.”

Deployment Strategy Intern

June 2022 - August 2022 New York City, NY
“The people and work at Palantir are simply outstanding. To sum it up, you are working on some of the hardest problems you will be able to find with some of the most brilliant and kind people you will be able to find. I have rarely grown both personally and professionally by such a large magnitude in such a short amount of time. While the internship itself is already challenging, you will get out of it what you put into it. After around week 5-6 I was basically not treated as an intern anymore and took on real responsibility for real needs that our clients had. This allowed me to not only work with my team on pressing issues our clients had when I arrived at Palantir but also independently explore new project ideas with our clients that ultimately resulted in a production application that I had full responsibility and oversight over and had developed independently with our clients. I have met a wide array of very wise and kind people at Palantir, who I am still in contact with long after my internship, and who have helped me grow both as a person and as a professional.”
