As a Software Engineer on Developer Infrastructure, you’ll identify, develop, and drive investments to improve the velocity and quality of our engineering, as well as bolster the happiness and productivity of other developers.

The Developer Infrastructure role spans a spectrum of areas, such as build and software supply-chain systems, platform runtime environments, telemetry relating concurrency, memory/performance optimizations, and monitoring/alerting. Your primary users will be other developers at Palantir. They will be empowered with the software you develop to build capabilities used by research scientists, aerospace engineers, intelligence analysts, and economic forecasters in countries around the world. There will be opportunities to contribute to open source software, including projects maintained by others that we leverage. You’ll work autonomously within a community that will support and challenge you as you grow to become a strong technical contributor and engineering leader.

Given the push of our new AIP product, and as we expand our AI product offerings, the demand for Python expertise has grown significantly. In response, we are building a Python Development Infrastructure team that will play a crucial role in shaping Palantir's approach to Python, a language that has not been extensively used in our products before.
