Job Description

* Our approach is to deploy whatever technology is best to solve the problem at hand. This often means that we are learning from the bleeding edge of the open-source community or developing our own tools. Recently, FDSEs have deployed:
* Postgres, Cassandra, Hadoop, and Spark for distributed data storage
* Java and Groovy for our back-end applications and data integration tools
* Typescript, AngularJS, jQuery, Backbone, Underscore, Leaflet, and d3 for our web technologies
* Python for data science and machine learning
* Internal frameworks for our rapid iteration tools

What We Value

* FDSEs are developers with a passion for using technology to achieve a larger goal. They enjoy the challenge of solving an abstract problem and building or adopting the technology to do it. To support these goals, we value:
* Collaboration: We work with our customers, often on site, to understand and solve their problems
* Commitment: We see projects through from beginning to end in spite of obstacles we may encounter.
* Balance: We do whatever is necessary to finish the job and trust one another to take the time we need, whether it's vacation or just a trip to the gym
* Communication: We communicate complex technical concepts to both technical and non-technical audiences
* Improvement: We push ourselves to grow and develop in new ways
* Impact: We take on meaningful and challenging projects that change the world for the better

About Palantir Technologies, Inc

In 2004, a close-knit group of seasoned entrepreneurs from the early days of PayPal, eBay, and other successful Silicon Valley companies teamed up with some friends from Stanford's computer science PhD program to create Palantir Technologies, a startup with a unique mission: to revolutionize the way in which government agencies and financial institutions analyze information. Huddled together in a one-story office in Palo Alto and fueled by copious amounts of Red Bull, the team pushed the state of the art in search, collaboration, and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Those in-house technological advances were augmented by Palantir's advisory group of top intelligence and financial experts from around the world, who have provided indispensable counsel on how to tailor the product to the complex needs of analyst communities. Palantir's analytical platforms have been designed specifically to make the analyst's world both exponentially easier to navigate and infinitely more interesting to inhabit. And already, a growing number of individuals and organizations are noticing the dramatic difference.
