Business Systems Architect

Palantir Technologies, Seattle, WA

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

As a Business Systems Architect, you will be responsible for both strategic direction and project execution across a portion of our portfolio of Financial systems that power the entire company. In this role, you will serve as an important partner to Information Technology (IT), Business Owners, individual Palantirians, and vendor stakeholders, and you will be tasked with understanding vital business problems and formulating a long-term vision for your portfolio. You’ll track and stabilize projects, remove roadblocks, and anticipate the needs of internal partners to ensure your outcomes meet the most critical business priorities. In addition, you’ll occasionally be asked to get directly involved in the systems themselves to implement new functionality or more deeply understand an issue.

You will be successful in this role if you are someone who loves fixing problems and feels comfortable investigating user issues yourself when the situation calls for it. This role requires a combination of product management, problem solving, and execution skills.

Core Responsibilities

  • Facilitate strong business partnerships with our key internal stakeholders at Palantir. You will be responsible for ensuring all relevant parties stay informed, are able to share feedback, and have a meaningful say in the work we do as a team.
  • Create, maintain, and iterate on the strategic vision and roadmap for your portfolio, working with your counterparts on the business side. Take full ownership of execution against these strategic outcomes.
  • Work with vendors to ensure that we’re following best practices, are fully utilizing what we’ve purchased, and are sharing key feedback that can improve our users’ overall experience of our products.
  • Lead on the execution of vital projects across your portfolio. You will work with our internal team, external vendors, and our customers to ensure things stay on track and everyone has what they need to get the job done.

What We Value

  • Strong product management toolkit, including excellent user engagement skills, robust prioritization and task triage frameworks, and the ability to make sound technical tradeoffs.
  • Proven aptitude for autonomously getting things done in complex internal environments with multiple stakeholder groups and competing priorities.
  • Track record of thriving in ambiguous operational environments, and the ability to embark on major projects without having all the data upfront. Unafraid of experimentation, failure, and rapid iteration towards successful outcomes.
  • Excellent customer service skills and enthusiasm for developing strong partnerships with internal users and senior leadership.
