Palantir has been making headlines again (as seen in the image on the left) and have caused several people ask me, "What is it like to work for Palantir?" In this entry, I attempt so summarize a day in the life of Palantirian.
I work in Santa Monica, along the up and coming "Silicon Beach" that features numerous startups and software behemoths alike. Working in this area is a cool perk, but Palantir offers a lot more than just a cool location to work. They feed us, do our laundry, give us a gym membership and stock the office with all kinds of snacks, drinks and toys. Up in the Shire (our code name for our Palo Alto headquarters), employees get free massages, free chiropractic adjustments, free onsite medical care, housing subsidies and much much more.
