Proposal and Capture Legal Strategist

Palantir Technologies, London, United Kingdom

Palantir builds software that connects data, technologies, humans and environments.


A World-Changing Company 
  
At Palantir, we’re passionate about building software that solves problems. We partner with the most important institutions in the world to transform how they use data and technology. Our software has been used to stop terrorist attacks, discover new medicines, gain an edge in global financial markets, and more. If these types of projects excite you, we'd love for you to join us. 


  
The Role 
  
Proposal and Capture Legal Strategists are a central part of Government and Commercial Business Development teams at Palantir and work closely with Palantir’s legal team. Our job is to surface and secure new business opportunities – to find the next problems Palantir will solve. On any given day, we’re scouring the world for opportunities Palantir might tackle, managing formal proposals for new contracts, drafting market research to help inform bid processes, and working with lawyers around the world to craft procurement strategies in highly competitive and regulated markets. 
  
As a Proposal and Capture Legal Strategist, you handle language the way our developers handle code. You write clearly, honestly, and persuasively. You can untangle complex regulatory requirements and chart a practical strategy to accomplish our goals. You strive to be the best at what you do and can work efficiently in any environment. You are able to collaborate with engineers to translate highly technical and complex concepts into clear, concise, and powerful written products. You are equally able to collaborate with lawyers, advisors, and procurement representatives to chart a path to a contract through a maze of procurement requirements in multiple jurisdictions. You'll prepare documents that effectively communicate the features and benefits of Palantir's products, tailored to a customer’s needs. You'll write, edit, and rewrite technical and non-technical text in order to put forward the most compelling proposals possible. You’ll shape the strategies that bring our powerful solutions to the institutions that need us the most. 

In this role, you will help us:

  • Identify new customers and opportunities in collaboration with the broader business development team and leadership. 
  • Work closely with counterparts to help shape our government outreach and shepherd engagements from initial meeting to contract signing.
  • Develop new ways to improve the proposal development process and streamline our procedures.
  • Produce proposals, concept papers, and marketing documents that communicate the core concepts of our business strategy, mission, impact, and products to multiple audiences, including contracting officers, proposal evaluators, senior leadership, policy makers, and the public. 
  • Help design and create graphics to support proposals or other written work. 
  • Manage and write complex proposals that require coordination between multiple teams across different Palantir offices. 
  • Collaborate with section authors from across the company, set deadlines, move the project forward, and communicate status updates throughout. 
  • Develop deep expertise with Palantir products, government procurement, use cases, existing customers, and potential customers. 
  • Serve as a link between business development and engineering teams. 

What We Value

  • Qualifying law degree (or equivalent experience). 
  • At least two years of experience in a role that requires significant writing and/or communications strategy in support of complex projects is preferred.
  • Experience in interpreting complex legal requirements and applying those requirements to real-world situations. 
  • Excellent writing and editing skills and strong attention to detail. 
  • Demonstrated project management skills and a love of getting things done, no matter the circumstances. 
  • Ability to quickly understand technical concepts and thrive in a highly technical environment. 
  • Deep satisfaction with the process of translating technical concepts or jargon into compelling, concise writing. 
  • Experience collaborating with many partners within an organization and managing relationships with external counterparts. 
  • Ability to travel between 10-25% on short notice depending on your home office and the project. 

To Apply

  • Please submit a cover letter, resume, and two writing samples solely authored by the applicant. Please upload them as a single PDF file using the "Attach Resume/CV" tool on the applicant page. 
  • If preferable, you may respond to the Optional Additional Questions instead of (or in addition to) submitting a cover letter.
