A World-Changing Company
Palantir builds the world’s leading software for data-driven decisions and operations. By bringing the right data to the people who need it, our platforms empower our partners to develop lifesaving drugs, forecast supply chain disruptions, locate missing children, and more.
Information Security’s mission is to secure Palantir, and by extension, protect our customers and their critical data. Your technical expertise is second only to your integrity and real passion for security and technology in general. Our ideal candidate works well on a team, is highly motivated, and enjoys solving problems and taking on new challenges. The work we do is not always clearly defined, so being able to work to outcomes with unclear paths should excite you. You have a strong security approach, care deeply about product and infrastructure, and are excited to protect Palantir against all threats. You'll design, architect, and drive security posture changes for Palantir, and work to make life hard for our adversaries.
This internship has wide-reaching impact, strong autonomy, and the resources and empowerment to make significant security improvements across all of Palantir. The skills and background of successful candidates may vary highly, but curiosity, tenacity, and a drive to be a world-class security engineer are the underpinnings of our team.
Information Security Interns are treated just like full time engineers, with significant freedom and ownership over their work. Interns take responsibility for real world projects and outcomes that our customers rely on.
- Impact: We address meaningful and exciting projects that change the security of Palantir for the better.
- Ownership: We see projects through from beginning to end, working through any obstacles we may encounter. We trust each other to effectively handle time and priorities and give people the space to think for themselves.
- Collaboration: We work internally with people from a variety of backgrounds. We also work externally with our customers, to understand and tackle their problems.
- Growth: We believe experiential learning is one of the best teachers and encourage ourselves and our peers to seek new challenges and opportunities for growth, as well as fine new ways to innovate and share knowledge.
What We Value
- Engineering background in fields such as Computer Science, Mathematics, Software Engineering, and Physics.
- Strong desire to own impactful security outcomes in a fast-paced, dynamic working environment.
- Ability to independently own projects and balance competing priorities, while still effectively collaborating with colleagues.
