Palantir Technologies is hiring a

Legal Ninja

New York, United States


Palantir transforms the way the world's most important institutions use data to solve their toughest problems. We have helped European authorities shut down child pornography rings, US special operations fight terrorist networks, hedge funds prevent insider trading, and biomedical researchers search for the next life-saving therapy.


Our New York-based Legal Ninjas are at the core of one of Palantir's growth centers. You will be an all-star contributor to the Legal Ninja team (Palantir's in-house legal team) and to the company as a whole - working as a generalist on every issue Palantir faces. You'll provide sage advice on a range of legal issues, from negotiating commercial agreements with Fortune Global 50 companies to working on regulatory, data privacy, and employment issues.
You enjoy taking ownership over problems, turning ill-defined objectives into epic outcomes. You are funny and easy to get along with, and are able to quickly connect with a wide variety of personality types. You are low ego, able to laugh at yourself, and can find enjoyment even in stressful situations. You want to work at Palantir because of our mission, not our valuation. Though you relish drafting a statement of work or sparring with a contracting officer, you are also excited to assist with business development, help Palantir open new offices in far-flung corners of the globe, and tackle a range of novel, complex issues as they arise. You will be a general contributor to the Legal Ninjas and to the company as a whole, just like every Legal Ninja on our team.
You’ll be ready to jump on a plane at a moment’s notice to push a deal across the finish line. You’ll be an expert on the intricate details of the contracts and subcontracts that enable Palantir to implement its cutting-edge technology to solve real-world problems.  You're excited to work with our engineers abroad as they build out Palantir's footprint across the globe. You’ll focus on the details, but also have the broad vision to bring large and multi-phase projects to completion. You will look forward to arriving at work each morning because there is always a new challenge to conquer.
