At Palantir Technologies, we're big fans of open source. Libraries from Apache, Google, npm, and various projects hosted on SourceForge.net make up a significant fraction of the third-party code we use to build our products.
We think it's the right thing to do, to add our voice to the chorus of developers making software available to freely use, modify, and distribute. The projects here are the reusable pieces of our infrastructure that we've had the time to clean-up, document, and release to the world. As time and other interests allow, we'll be making other projects available to the dev community.
Need something released under a different license? File an issue on the project and we can likely accomodate the request.
We'd love to hear from you on how we're doing. Aside from the normal outlets to communicate about the projects themselves (see the mailing lists and issue trackers for each project), please feel free to email me directly, Ari Gesher, as the curator of these projects.
In 2004, when we looked at the available technology, we saw products that were too rigid to handle novel problems, and custom systems that took too long to deploy and required too many services to maintain and improve. We saw automated approaches that failed against adaptive adversaries, and all-or-nothing access controls that forced organizations to make unacceptable trade-offs between collaborating and securing sensitive data from misuse. We saw a need for a different kind of technology, and we knew it would take a different kind of company to build it. That’s why we founded Palantir.
Working at Palantir means you'll be surrounded by colleagues who are dedicated to meeting their own high standards, to inspiring their teammates and to making a positive impact on the world through their work. If the same things get you excited, we hope you'll browse our open positions to see what might be a good fit with your interests and skill set. We look forward to hearing from you!
