About Us

Palantir is passionate about bespoke software engineering
Nothing's ever built to last but that doesn't mean it's not worth building

So many companies will tell you about their processes and techniques, and we will too, but they don't talk nearly enough about what underlies those. Dedicated, talented individuals with a passion for what they do are far more important than any process or technique.

At Palantir our focus is on finding individuals like that, and welding them together into a powerful and cohesive team. We then layer on processes and techniques that help creativity and innovation, not hinder it.

We can do this because we’re owned and run by software engineers, and we have deep experience in what makes software engineering successful and productive, and we apply that knowledge to improve our staff’s capabilities at all times.

  • Rigorous Engineering Discipline

    We make use of strong engineering techniques to maximise our quality of delivery. These techniques speed development and change, and encourage successful innovation.

  • Agility and Innovation

    We constantly work to improve the level and quality of our solutions, thinking, and knowledge. Our staff can, swiftly and confidently, deliver real business value.

  • Focus on the entire lifecycle

    We don't just worry about passing QA, we consider the entire lifespan of the solution. We think about supportability and maintainability for years to come, allowing you get maximum use out of your investment.

  • Team Quality & Performance

    We engineer our team processes to ensure maximum productivity, our hiring processes to find top talent, and our training processes to make our people more effective.
