[JOB] Deployment Strategist (NY), Palantir Technologies

Deployment Strategist
New York, NY
Deployment Strategists on our Commercial team work side by side with our Forward Deployed Engineers to solve the most difficult problems major commercial institutions have to offer.  The problem space we tackle is wildly diverse and growing every day.   We enable the discovery of new financial relationships and strategies in capital markets.  We uncover fraud rings and cyber attacks.  We develop strategies for optimizing home lending default strategies.  We are not domain experts; we are problem solving experts.
Deployment Strategist lead complex enterprise deployments of our software and do everything it takes to make them succeed: prove the analytical value of the software against nebulous problems with dirty data under tight time constraints, work intimately with customers to enable them to solve problems on their own, prioritize and manage multiple work streams while navigating complex political situations, and look for ways to grow Palantir’s impact with our existing customers and beyond. We are not all engineers, but we are all very comfortable with technology.  We thrive in high pressure, chaotic environments and know how to manage competing priorities to deliver high quality execution to our customers.
You have operated in highly analytical or technical roles in the past, but you have also shown initiative to take over direction of projects and challenge assumptions on the best ways to execute them.  You have figured out how to succeed in difficult environments even when your team or the customer has done nothing to help you.  You are capable of handling senior executives in the morning and getting in the weeds with analysts in the afternoon.  You have gotten as much as possible out of your current role but are craving more: more ownership, more challenges, more impact.

Plan thoroughly, avoid meetings, work hard, and squash problems
Roll up their sleeves and work on the critical analytical, technical, and operational challenges facing our customers

Palantir Technologies is working to radically change how groups analyze information. We were founded in 2004 by a handful of PayPal alumni and Stanford computer scientists. Since then we’ve doubled in size every year while retaining our early-stage values: a startup culture, strong work ethic and rigorous hiring standards.
We currently offer a suite of software applications for integrating, visualizing and analyzing the world’s information. We support many kinds of data including structured, unstructured, relational, temporal and geospatial.
Our products are built for real analysis with a focus on security, scalability, ease of use and collaboration. They are broadly deployed in the intelligence, defense, law enforcement and financial communities, and are spreading rapidly by word of mouth into applications in other industries and realms of impact.
Palantir is headquartered in downtown Palo Alto, CA, with offices around the world.
