The Role
Palantir’s in-house legal team works to proactively address legal issues so that Palantir can continue to drive positive impact in the world. As a Commercial Contracts Specialist, you will be a non-attorney partnering closely with Commercial Counsel to effectively support our rapidly growing portfolio of commercial customers. In this role, you will also work closely with Palantir’s Sales, Legal, Finance, and Engineering teams, while owning the drafting, administration, and negotiation of commercial customer contracts, and building infrastructure to support our commercial customers at scale.
As you develop expertise with our commercial contracts and build relationships with our internal partners, you will become adept at quickly researching and answering factual and interpretive contractual questions as needed.

We’re a team that values both creativity and teamwork - whether operating solo or collaboratively, we seek to achieve great results on challenging, time-sensitive projects. You'll be given open ended objectives and will find ways to turn them into outcomes. By focusing on the broad vision without losing sight of the details, you'll bring large and multi-phase projects to successful completion while prioritizing team outcomes over individual wins. You are able to deliver complex information in an understandable way, and can manage high touch stakeholders in a constantly shifting landscape. You are ready to become an expert on the intricate details of the contracts that enable Palantir to implement its cutting-edge technology to solve real-world problems. You are passionate about conceiving and implementing scalable systems that increase your impact, and that of the Commercial Contracting team, over time.
