Make The Shift From Now to Next
As a Product Designer, you are a generalist who spans many design disciplines: user research, information architecture, prototyping, ideation, interaction design, and sometimes visual design. You will visit our users, listen, investigate, learn, and ideate. You know that form informs function and usability-that the surface layer doesn’t exist in a vacuum.
Sometimes we’re out in front, exploring brand-new problem spaces, figuring out what to build, and sometimes you’re deep in the details of micro-interactions, figuring out how to build it. You lead feature teams in design exercises ranging from day-long design studios to week-long design sprints.
What We Value
Excellent communication skills. You have the ability to build great relationships, and convey and debate design rationale. You are the person that people can’t wait to collaborate with.
Empathy, not ego. You strive to understand users and fight to empower them.
A profound love of engineers. Palantir is an engineering company, and we get to work with some of the best in the world. Engineers realize our vision-and we realize theirs-and together we create software that our users love.
A highly iterative design process. You move fast, listen, and adapt. You rapidly incorporate feedback, and prioritize collaboration. You are adept at giving and receiving critiques.
A mastery of tools. You move with ease across software and fidelity, depending on the task at hand. Sketch.app, hand-coding, Photoshop, Illustrator, or Keynote-and good old-fashioned pencil and paper.
