✨ About The Role

Forward Deployed Software Engineer - Intel

Washington, D.C.
Delta /
Full-time
/ On-site
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

Forward Deployed Software Engineers (FDSEs) work directly with customers to quickly understand their greatest problems and design and implement solutions to use data against them. In this role, you’ll apply your problem solving ability, creativity, and technical skills to help organizations use their data to drive a real impact in the world.

FDSEs deploy ground breaking technical solutions to solve our customers’ hardest problems. Projects often start with an open-ended question like “How can our technology push the envelope on data protection capabilities that enable collaboration on the most sensitive data while meeting all compliance requirements?” FDSEs lead the way in developing a solution, from high-level system design and prototyping to application development and data integration. As an FDSE, you make use of everything around you: Palantir products, open source technologies , and anything you and your team can build to create real impact.

Whether you aspire to be an entrepreneur or an engineering leader, we believe Palantir is the best place — with the best colleagues — to learn how. You’ll learn how to unpack a problem and understand the costs and consequences of its solution. You’ll learn new technologies and languages, and even develop them yourself. You’ll work autonomously and make decisions independently, within a community that will support and challenge you as you grow and develop.

Core Responsibilities

You work with customers around the globe, where you gain rare insight into the world’s most important industries and institutions. We help our customers protect vulnerable populations, deter future violence, and more. Each mission presents different challenges, from the regulatory environment to the nature of the data to the user population. You will work to accommodate all aspects of an environment to drive real technical outcomes for our customers.

Our Principles

    • Impact: We take on meaningful and challenging projects that change the world for the better.
    • Ownership: We see projects through from beginning to end, working through any obstacles we may encounter.
    • Collaboration: We work internally with people from a variety of backgrounds — such as other FDSEs, product teams, and Deployment Strategists. We also work externally with our customers, often on site, to understand and solve their problems.
    • Trust: We trust each other to effectively manage time and priorities and give people the space to think for themselves.
    • Growth: We encourage ourselves and our peers to seek new challenges and opportunities for growth, as well as find new ways to innovate and share knowledge.
    • Learning: We often face entirely novel problems where we need to pick up a lot of new knowledge and learn how to use it to make progress. We believe experiential learning is one of the best teachers.

What We Value

    • Strong engineering background, preferred in fields such as Computer Science, Mathematics, Software Engineering, Physics.
    • Familiarity with data structures, storage systems, cloud infrastructure, front-end frameworks, and other technical tools.
    • Strong coder with demonstrated proficiency in programming languages such as Python, Java, C++, TypeScript/JavaScript, or similar.
    • Demonstrated ability to collaborate effectively in teams of technical and non-technical individuals, and comfortable working in a rapidly changing environment with dynamic objectives and iteration with users.
    • Willingness and interest to travel as needed.

What We Require

    • Active Full Scope Poly level US security clearance
