Palantir Technologies

Posted 1 week ago

VIEW JOBS 11/19/2022 12:00:00 AM 2023-02-17T00:00 <p>A World-Changing Company</p><p>At Palantir, we're passionate about building software that solves problems. We partner with the most important institutions in the world to transform how they use data and technology. <br><br> 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.</p><p>The Role</p><p>The Palantir Design Team is responsible for the human experience of using our software. Our team is growing rapidly, but we're committed to creating a tight-knit team environment that fosters trust, integrity, empathy, and growth. We work together in realizing a shared product vision, and regularly give feedback and critique to each other.</p><p>Designing at Palantir is a varied experience. On a given day, you might be: leading a design sprint for your product team; designing a micro-interaction to make a complex analytical task feel simple; and/or advocating for UX consistency by creating flexible, reusable UI components.</p><p>Core Responsibilities</p><ul><li><p>Interaction and visual design. As a product designer, you'll be involved at every stage of design work. <br><br> You'll help define early product concepts, flesh out the high-level workflow and micro-interactions of a feature, and execute on a crisp and effective visual design. You should have experience with some of the following mockup and prototyping tools: Sketch, Framer, Principle, Figma, Invision.</p></li><li><p>User research. We frequently do informal user research, and value people who can be flexible with research processes and methodologies to achieve the right outcome. <br><br> You'll often visit customer offices to interview and learn from the users we serve. You'll pair qualitative methods (e.g. scripted usability tests and contextual inquiry) with quantitative information, like product and usage metrics.</p></li><li><p>Prototyping. You will prototype-using software like Principle and Framer, or another favorite method-both to communicate your designs and validate your decisions.</p></li><li><p>Partnering with engineers. We work closely with product and forward deployed engineers to realize our design ideas. You'll treat engineers as partners and collaborate with them to prototype and build out products.</p></li><li><p>Awareness of how software interfaces are built. Familiarity with HTML, CSS, Javascript, and Typescript is appreciated. <br><br> You don't need to be an expert-just fluent enough to collaborate with engineers, and know what's possible with frontend technologies. Resources and mentorship are available to designers who want to learn more.</p></li></ul><p>Designers at Palantir have great autonomy over their work, so a wide skill set is necessary. However, many designers on the team are also passionate experts in one area. You might be the kind of designer who ships code every week, or the kind of designer who shares detailed user research findings with your team.</p><p>What We Value</p><ul><li><p>An iterative design process. You validate your ideas early (with stakeholders and users) and are thoughtful and intentional in seeking and responding to feedback. <br><br> You move fast, listen, and adapt. You rapidly incorporate feedback, and prioritize collaboration. You are adept at giving and receiving critiques.</p></li><li><p>Collaboration and communication. You can build great relationships with engineers, PMs, and other stakeholders-and convey your design rationale to them. To reach these audiences, you'll communicate your designs through a variety of methods: presenting your mockups, making prototypes, sharing a design spec.</p></li><li><p>Thoughtful, intentional work. <br><br> You know that form informs function and usability-that the surface layer doesn't exist in a vacuum. Your design decisions are often informed by-and will influence-engineering and business considerations.</p></li><li><p>Dedication to the user. You'll design software that changes how people use data in government, commercial, and philanthropic contexts. You strive to understand our users-who can range from a manufacturing plant worker to a pharmaceutical researcher-and fight to empower them.</p></li></ul><p>Requirements</p><ul><li>A portfolio demonstrating at least one software interface design project. If parts of your portfolio are password-protected, please include your portfolio password under 'Additional Information' when applying.</li></ul><p>Benefits</p><ul><li><p>Medical, dental, and vision insurance</p></li><li><p>Life and disability coverage</p></li><li><p>Paid leave for new parents and emergency back-up care for all parents</p></li><li><p>Family planning support, including fertility, adoption, and surrogacy assistance</p></li><li><p>Stipend to help with expenses that come with a new child</p></li><li><p>Commuter benefits</p></li><li><p>Relocation assistance</p></li><li><p>Unlimited paid time off</p></li></ul><p>Our benefits aim to promote health and wellbeing across all areas of Palantirians' lives. We work to continuously improve our offerings and listen to our community as we design and update them. The list above details our available benefits and some of the perks that can be enjoyed as an employee of Palantir Technologies.</p><p>Salary</p><p>The starting salary for this position is estimated to be $105,000 year. Total compensation includes approximately $15,000/year of equity compensation in the form of Restricted Stock Units, based on the recent value of the company's stock at the time of grant. <br><br> Further note that total compensation for this position will be determined by candidate's relevant qualifications, work experience, skills, and other factors. This estimate excludes the value of any potential sign-on bonus; the value of any benefits offered; and the potential future value of any long-term incentives.</p><p>Our team has people from a variety of backgrounds-people who studied type design, computer science, psychology; people who joined Palantir right after university; and people who joined our team after switching industries. We value skills and mindset over a specific educational background.</p><p>Life at Palantir</p><p>We want every Palantirian to achieve their best outcomes, that's why we celebrate individuals' strengths, skills, and interests, from your first interview to your longterm growth, rather than rely on traditional career ladders. Paying attention to the needs of our community enables us to optimize our opportunities to grow and helps ensure many pathways to success at Palantir. <br><br> Promoting health and well-being across all areas of Palantirians' lives is just one of the ways we're investing in our community. Learn more at Life at Palantir and note that our offerings may vary by region.</p><p>In keeping consistent with Palantir's values and culture, we believe employees are &quot;better together&quot; and in-person work affords the opportunity for more creative outcomes.
