Our software has been used to stop terrorist attacks, discover new medicines, gain an edge in global financial markets, and more. If these types of projects excite you, we'd love for you to join us.

The Role

As a Business Development Operations Analyst and Contract Program Security Officer (CPSO) for our US Government teams, you do more than just support our implementation; you track and stabilize projects, remove roadblocks, support contract security workflows, and anticipate needs to free up your team to focus their time and attention on the problems they are best equipped to solve.

Communication is one of your greatest strengths and you excel at constructing order out of ambiguity.

You will also be responsible for driving US Government projects forward and owning their operational outcomes, inclusive of ensuring our resources have the requisite clearances and security paperwork in place to be successful. Our ideal candidate is innovative, collaborative, and capable of dealing with complex interpersonal dynamics. You will be a part of a team of talented individuals who are just as passionate about supporting one another as they are about Palantir's mission.

  • Leverage the collective knowledge of the team - learn and develop expertise to cover a critical gap or bolster and important efforts and projects, internalize feedback, and take charge of your personal growth.

  • Manage security aspects of a given contract as the named CPSO on a US Government contract, ensuring our personnel are able to efficiently onboard to sensitive missions and maintain reporting compliance with security requirements.

What We Value

  • Sound judgment, with the ability to recognize inefficiencies within projects in your orbit and quickly adapt to mitigate these.

  • Strong attention to detail, including maintaining accurate records and diligently tracking key project metrics.

  • Expertise in navigating DISS, JADE, e-QIP, ACCS and similar USG systems.
