An Insider's view of Palantir Technologies

What are some social events your company does?

My favorite social events are all the events centered around our kids! It allows teammates to connect not only on work projects but parenthood hacks, funny stories and work life balance! The kids always leave happy and asking if they can come to work with us again tomorrow!

Tiffany

Office Operations Analyst

What projects are you most excited about?

I’m most excited about projects that help people – either by letting them do more, or do what they’re already doing faster and better. I work on developer tooling, productivity, and infrastructure, so I get plenty of chances to do that at Palantir, building out tooling and solutions that help our developers deliver.

Javier

DevOps Engineer

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I love that our office embraces social activity outside of work! We have office softball and basketball teams, various clubs like the board game club, and regularly scheduled events like Friday happy hour. These are opportunities to get to know your colleagues in a different environment and make new friends in New York!
