Culture and Careers
Our culture is rooted in sharing our knowledge and experiences with others.
At Palantir, we’re more than just a group of web professionals; we’re curious, independent thinkers and learners with exceptional passion, initiative, and talent. We’re also authors, musicians, science fiction nerds, comedians, dog and cat lovers, cyclists, foodies, and so much more.
Palantir is a distributed team and promotes a flexible, remote-first culture. Through a suite of online tools, we share our knowledge and experiences, allowing our team to thrive through collaboration regardless of physical location.
When working collaboratively online, we can give and receive good karma using the “++” symbol used in most modern programming languages. This symbol is integrated into our culture and serves as a frequently invoked expression of approval and appreciation. It can mean, “you rock,” “mad props,” “nice move,” “you’re the best,” “yay,” and of course, “thank you.”
More About Our Culture
We like each other. At Palantir, we refer to ourselves as a team and we put a lot of value on that word. We like working together, and that means we invest in each other. We believe the best decisions are made together.
We’re problem solvers. Our greatest skillset is our unique ability to solve the most challenging problems. We believe our team and our clients are empowered through sharing our knowledge and experience. At Palantir, we can all impact change.
We don’t believe in one size fits all. We focus on how to best meet the needs of team, and rarely are those needs the same for everyone. When we are asking ourselves “what will work best for our team?” we are building a happier, more productive and successful Palantir.
Do the right thing is an overarching theme in the work we do here. We believe in doing the right thing for the client, the project and the team. That can get complicated and it takes dedication, trust and thoughtful decision making.
We believe in cultivating a culture of feedback. The ability to effectively give and receive feedback is important to our success. It allows for connection, trust and continuous improvement. Feedback is a commitment.
We appreciate a challenge and we’re not afraid to try new things. We like work that makes us think and pushes us to come up with innovative solutions to complex problems.
