Interview

The interview questions were more bizarre than challenging. The difficult part came when I had to complete two timed test. No matter what position you are interviewing for, definitely be prepared to answer technical questions.

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Palantir Technologies (Boston, MA) in May 2021

Interview

The interview is a bit odd since the sales team is very new. You talk to a recruiter, a couple of sales or sales support folks via video, and you get a decision 3-4 meetings into it. I was not provided any feedback but they did not move forward with me. 3/4 people I talk to said that they would recommend they hire me. Sales is completely new to Palantir and it can be confusing. The process was messy and although everyone tries to be helpful it's totally unstructured.

Interview Questions
  • No technical or specific Qs. Just generic type, like why do you want to work at Palantir, background, etc.
