A World-Changing Company
At Palantir, we’re passionate about building software that solves problems. 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. If these types of projects excite you, we'd love for you to join us.
The Role
Are you excited about building world class platforms that power mission critical software at a huge scale? Apollo enables autonomous management and continuous deployment of software, wherever it is. We’re taking SAAS to where SAAS has not gone before: from on-premise, to various cloud providers, to disconnected environments (air-gapped), to strict accreditation frameworks including IL-5 and FedRAMP, and to the edge. You can read more about the problem Apollo was built to solve on our blog or watch our Apollo demo day.
As a Software Engineer on the Apollo platform you will build software at scale to transform how organizations around the world deploy software. You will be responsible for mission critical software powering deployment of software for both Palantir and its customers in the commercial and government space.
You have a curious mind, high bar for engineering quality and ability to work in a dynamic environment where the best idea wins. Apollo Software Engineers are involved throughout the product lifecycle. From idea generation, to design and prototyping, to execution, and shipping. As a Software Engineer, you'll collaborate closely with technical and non-technical counterparts to understand our customers' problems and build products that solve them.
Please note that this posting is open to all levels of experience.
