A World-Changing Company
At Palantir, we’re driven to solve the world's most critical and challenging problems, and believe that building software to enable human decision making is the most effective vector. 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.
The Role
As a Deployment Strategist Intern, you'll work as part of a diverse, generative, and creative team of Engineers, Product Designers, and other Deployment Strategists to deploy software against the most challenging problems our world faces. Your mission is to synthesize disconnected streams of thought into a cohesive understanding of what the problem is, what the data means, what the product needs, what users are motivated by, and where the impact could be. The problems you'll tackle will require a curious and analytical mindset, a sharp intuition for product, an ability to speak the language of data, and an understanding that humans should make decisions.
At its core, this role is about uncovering dots and—without knowing the shape they form—figuring out how to connect them. Our customers come to us with a hunch that the only way to protect their troops, manufacture high-quality products, structure effective healthcare policies, or deliver aid to refugees safely is to make better use of their data. Deployment Strategists are responsible for turning that hunch into reality.
Deployment Strategists are do-ers who thrive in ambiguity, react quickly to new stimuli, and don't equate pivoting with failing as they operate in pursuit of truth, value, and meaningful impact. In this internship, you'll immerse yourself in intricate customer workflows, explore data using quantitative analytics across large datasets, and dive into the product landscape.
If you believe in the transformational power of data and technology and in your own ability to bring that power to bear against complex problems, we want to meet you.

No two days are the same, but as a Deployment Strategist you can expect to:

  • Go onsite and meet with customer analysts to understand the critical questions they need to answer and locate their biggest pain points.
  • Build a case for gaining access to the relevant datasets, and work with Forward Deployed Engineers to integrate the data into a stable and extensible pipeline.
  • Create and lead training sessions to ensure that the product is meeting the needs of a range of users, and is being used widely enough to have concrete impact on our partners' operations.
  • Present the results of our work and proposals for future work to audiences ranging from analysts to C-suite executives.
  • Embed with our Software Engineering and Product Design teams to incorporate what you saw in the field into cross-Palantir product offerings.
  • Build and deliver demos to new and existing customers.
  • Scope out potential engagements in new industries and in increasingly expanding locations around the world.

What We Value

  • Extraordinary ability to take on open-ended problems in unstructured environments.
  • Ability to be adaptive and introspective; willingness to learn, teach, lead and follow.
  • Ability to travel as needed. Varies by location and team.
  • Experience with programming, scripting or statistical packages (e.g. Python, R, Matlab, SQL) is a plus.
