The Role

The security of our products and our platform is existential to Palantir and the world-changing work we do.

You'll get to apply your breaker skills, pentesting Palantir's products, and sharpen your builder skills, working to automate security assessments and shape software architecture.

Core Responsibilities

  • Perform deep architecture and security reviews on highly complex products to identify vulnerabilities.

  • Influence and assist engineer teams in feature design, threat modeling, and security-critical code and architecture.

  • Develop and implement automation to eliminate entire classes of weaknesses across the organization.

  • Champion Application and Information Security both within the organization, and with our customers.

What We Value

  • Strong development or software engineering experience and a passion for security.

  • Ability to communicate technical security concepts to diverse audiences, both verbally and in writing.

  • Proficient in a modern high-level programming language (e.g. Java, Golang, Javascript, Python, etc.)

  • Demonstrated experience evaluating code for vulnerabilities and weaknesses.

  • Experience with complex architectures and codebases (e.g. SOA or microservice).
