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

Capture Strategists are critical members of Palantir’s US Government team. Responsible for growing the business, they partner with business development and technical execution stakeholders to identify and win major opportunities. We’re looking for a Capture Strategist to expand Palantir’s footprint in the Department of Defense. By developing and executing strategy for new customer acquisition, this role will make an outsized impact on the organization’s growth trajectory.

Palantir is fast-paced, and in this role you'll be expected to make decisions independently by weighing various needs and priorities. The role and its surrounding organization aren't rigidly defined, so it's important that you can navigate an unstructured environment. We are a lean team constantly managing new business challenges and learning on the job. We are looking for mission-driven teammates who can jump into any situation with enthusiasm.

Core Responsibilities

    • Work closely with counterparts to help shape our government outreach and shepherd engagements, from initial meeting through the federal IT acquisitions process to award.
    • Identify new customers and opportunities in the Department of Defense in collaboration with the broader business development team, engineering teams, and leadership.
    • Develop customer profiles, including identifying target customer needs and the most effective way to address those needs.
    • Establish and grow relationships with key executives at target accounts.
    • Lead the assessment of competitors.
    • Work with proposal writers to refine messaging and value proposition in written content.
    • Drive pricing strategy and negotiation with support from contracts team and leadership.

What We Value

    • At least five years of experience in a leadership role focused on capture management and strategy.
    • Experience building and managing relationships with the Department of Defense.
    • In-depth knowledge of US Government procurement.
    • Ability to think outside of the box and beyond traditional capture strategies to reach goals.
    • Ability to thrive in a fast-paced, highly technical environment. This will involve developing deep familiarity with Palantir's software platforms and how they can be used to solve a wide range of real-world problems.
