      No it's not. I come here to avoid all the dumb questions there.

      What would you consider an intelligent question

    Congrats on landing the onsite. For standard SE or the forward deployed one?

    Note that interview format is a little different from most companies. Typically three rounds at Palantir onsite, only one is the classic whiteboard algo / DS problem.

    Another is a system design question

    And the third is a round where they show you a small codebase on a laptop with a couple of bugs or issues for you to find and fix.

    Palantir puts a lot of emphasis on culture fit. So make sure to brush up on why you want the job etc.

      Oh, does it matter which role it’s for? I applied for SE but I heard they bait and switch so I figured they’d have the same process.

      I also know I’ll be competing vs Harvard Stanford kids as Palantir values prestige, so I’m a bit worried. Thank you so much for replying, I’ve been learning a bit of system design recently, cheers.

      Decomp == system design?
