New York, NY, USA
Posted on Thursday, December 15, 2022
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.
The Role
Apollo is Palantir's product that enables autonomous management and continuous deployment of mission critical software, wherever it is. We’re transforming the way organizations around the world deploy software, taking SAAS where SAAS has not gone before: from on-premise, to various cloud providers, to disconnected environments (air-gapped), to strict accreditation frameworks, and to the edge.
As a Front End Engineer on the Apollo platform you will be responsible for the experience of thousands of users, architecting interfaces that make sophisticated deployment and monitoring tasks simple. You might spend one day interviewing users to understand their complex workflows and the next brainstorming mockups with Product Designers. Another day, you could tackle automating a workflow, partnering with backend engineers to wire up your code with the APIs, or if you’re really up for a challenge, building them yourself!
We're hiring engineers who are passionate about the whole development lifecycle — not just fixing bugs or maintaining legacy code — from idea generation, user interviews, planning, design, prototyping, execution, shipping, and iteration.

Core Responsibilities

  • Work with Product Designers and internal and external customers to develop the overall look and design of our web application
  • Develop and evolve core libraries and components used to render user interfaces
  • Collaborate with Backend Engineers to define APIs that support frontend functionality
  • Contribute backend code to unblock and enhance projects
  • Routinely test and debug web applications, manually and through automation, to maintain high quality and performance

What We Value

  • High sense of ownership and ability to own things end-to-end
  • Strong design sense and deep user empathy
  • Clear and concise verbal and written communications
  • Demonstrated ability to work in a fast-paced product development team, with peers and teammates across multiple locations and timezones
  • High engineering standards and a desire to improve both new and existing systems
  • Willingness and enthusiasm to do what it takes to get things done, leading by example and deeply engaging with the team’s day-to-day work
  • A focus on impact and an ability to articulate the value your work provides

What We Require

  • 3+ years of front end software engineering experience. Regardless of which frameworks you use or how you learned them, we’re looking for people who can write clean, effective code.
  • Proven track record of building impactful user interfaces, understanding how technical decisions impact users.
  • Proficiency with web technologies and front end programming languages such as JavaScript, TypeScript, or similar languages.
  • Familiarity with front-end frameworks, data structures, storage systems, cloud infrastructure, and other technical tools.
  • Demonstrated ability to learn continuously, work independently, and make decisions with minimal supervision in a rapidly changing environment with dynamic objectives and iteration cycles.
  • Our benefits aim to promote health and wellbeing across all areas of Palantirians’ lives. We work to continuously improve our offerings and listen to our community as we design and update them.
