Palantir FDE’s — how has your career grown there?

I’m curious because I’m considering software engineer vs. forward deployed engineer there.

I’m still fairly junior and still have a lot to go in terms of my engineering. But, I don’t see myself coding decades later, and a FDE I’ve spoken with says he’s learned an incredible amount there from a business standpoint (not just engineering), which sounds appealing to me.

It sounds like the typical consulting recruiting pitch to me (come to us, you’ll learn a lot from many different industries and get a wide breadth of experience).

Has that been the case for you?

    It really depends on a deployment that you will be assigned to - some will not have any coding at all.

    I do code pretty much every day, also have an option to spend more time with a client but I just choose not to.

    The pay is good in Europe, probably not that great in the US.

    The business side of work is actually interesting, I know several people who even transitioned from writing code to do more business analysis and business solutions.

      Hey I’m really looking to go into Palantir. Really interested in what kind of solutions they’re up to - I’m US based. You mind a quick chat? I do something similiar to leverage at SFDC.
