A World-Changing Company
At Palantir, we're driven to solve the world's most critical and
challenging problems, and believe that building software to enable
human decision making is the most effective vector. We partner with
the most important institutions in the world to transform how they
use data and technology. Our software has been used to stop
terrorist attacks, discover new medicines, gain an edge in global
financial markets, and more.
What We're About
From designing interfaces that help the military make
time-sensitive decisions to developing workflows that enable our
customers to meet the requirements of the EU General Data
Protection Regulation (GDPR), Deployment Strategists on the Privacy
and Civil Liberties (PCL) team are responsible for providing
practical guidance on how Palantir and its customers can meet legal
requirements and ethical obligations while achieving
mission-critical outcomes. As a Deployment Strategist on Palantir's
PCL team, no two days are the same. But at its core, this role
requires understanding and staying up to date on rapidly changing
sociotechnical environments, and developing actionable solutions to
ambiguous problems, both technical and non-technical.
What We Do
The Privacy and Civil Liberties (PCL) team is a mission-driven
interdisciplinary team of Software Engineers, Product Designers,
Lawyers, and Applied Ethicists. The goal of the PCL team is to
design, build, and deploy privacy and civil liberties protective
technologies, and to foster a culture of responsibility around
their development and use. We are execution-focused policy experts
who are equally comfortable driving user adoption of a
privacy-protective feature or discussing the civil liberties
implications of our products with experts and regulators. Our team
successfully manages multiple internal and external commitments
simultaneously while navigating complex and nuanced political
environments with care. We have deep expertise in privacy law and
technology ethics, and are able to translate legal and ethical
requirements into a language engineers will understand.
