About Palantir

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.

Job Description

We help to achieve connection and understanding. Our users must build knowledge from data in our software, potential customers and candidates need to understand and relate to the story of our company and the exciting work we do, and it’s our job to help tell these stories.

Designers are highly valued in the company for our vision, our ability to learn and adapt, and our creativity and inventiveness. We’re growing rapidly, yet focused on creating a tight-knit group of people that enjoy working together in an atmosphere that fosters trust, integrity, empathy, and growth. We rigorously share and promote our ideas and constantly incorporate feedback and critique.

As a Product Design Intern, you are a generalist who spans many design disciplines: user research, information architecture, prototyping, ideation, interaction design, and sometimes visual design. You will work to deeply understand our product use cases with our Forward Deployed teams and end users by listening, investigating, learning, and ideating. You know that form informs function and usability—that the surface layer doesn’t exist in a vacuum.

Sometimes we’re out in front, exploring brand-new problem spaces, determining what to build, and sometimes you’re deep in the details of micro-interactions, determining how to build it. You lead feature teams in design exercises ranging from day-long design studios to week-long design sprints.

Core Responsibilities

  • Work with fellow Designers, Product Managers, Developers, and Forward Deployed Engineers to refine and evolve the quality of all Palantir software.
  • Prototype with tools such as paper and pen, Figma, After Effects, Principle, and Keynote.

What We Value

  • Excellent collaboration and communication skills with the ability to build great relationships with engineers, PMs, and other collaborators, and convey and debate design rationale.
  • High empathy and dedication to the user, striving to understand and empower them.
  • Strong ability to iterate through the design process, give and receive critiques, and rapidly incorporate feedback. 
  • Experience with tools applied by the team, such as Figma, Principle, After Effects, hand-coding - or the ability to quickly adapt to them.

What We Require

  • Willingness to obtain a US Security clearance.
  • Must be planning on graduating in 2025. This should be your final internship before graduating.
  • 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.
