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
As a People Operations Specialist, you will support People Team projects from start to finish, concept to delivery. You are passionate about People Operations (employee onboarding, data management and reporting, etc.), and committed to providing high-quality service to all those you interact with. You understand and can articulate the broader context of people project work – what tradeoffs were made, who made them, and what the reasons were. You are outcome-oriented, and pursue solutions in a thoughtful, iterative, and empathetic way.
You have a keen eye for detail and critical thinking, a focus on accuracy, and extraordinary customer service skills. You are someone who is motivated by consistently improving internal processes that remove friction and enhance the employee experience. Most importantly, you find people-focused work exciting and rewarding. This company is filled with amazing, brilliant, and dedicated folks from around the world, and we work hard to serve and support all of them in our shared pursuit of the mission.

  • Oversee and own programs and projects across the People Operations team.

In keeping consistent with Palantir’s values and culture, we believe employees are “better together” and in-person work affords the opportunity for more creative outcomes. Therefore, we encourage employees to work from our offices to foster connectivity and innovation. Many teams do offer hybrid options (WFH a day or two a week), allowing our employees to strike the right trade-off for their personal productivity. Based on business need, there are a few roles that allow for “Remote” work on an exceptional basis. If you are applying for one of these roles, you must work from the city and or country in which you are employed. If the posting is specified as Onsite, you are required to work from an office.
Palantir is committed to promoting a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We believe that all Palantirians share the responsibility of upholding our commitment to these values and encourage candidates from a wide range of backgrounds, perspectives, and lived experiences to join us in solving the world’s hardest problems.
