Windows DevOps Engineer

| Greater NYC Area
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 Windows DevOps Engineer, you will be joining a team of enthusiastic engineers set out to deliver secure infrastructure that directly impacts core-business outcomes. Our team is a mix of software engineers and system engineers, and our projects range from building web applications to automating Windows server deployment and configuration.
We are looking for someone who has a strong desire to stay ahead of the curve and help us redefine Windows system engineering. The rise of Dev Ops, combined with Windows 2016 server, has opened up the opportunity to redesign how Windows infrastructure has traditionally been built. We are working toward creating an ephemeral Windows environment, using AWS and Azure to automate the traditional, manual workflows.
On any given day, you'll participate in short, high-energy sprints focusing on projects such as creating a zero maintenance environment, expanding the features that we currently offer, and moving critical services into AWS. Our team aims for a high standard, so you will participate in regular demos to showcase prototypes, teach new libraries, or demonstrate a project that you've completed.

Core Responsibilities:

  • Deploy critical applications on Windows servers to AWS and Azure using tools such as Packer, Terraform, DSC, Chocolatey, and Powershell to automate service lifecycle. Strong focus on auto-remediation.
  • Build applications with Python or Go to create self-service workflows to minimize operational workload.
  • Architect entire subsystems of core Palantir infrastructure.
  • Redesign our automated task system using container based technologies (e.g. Nomad and Docker).
  • Work directly with the Information Security team to design and implement security policies.
  • Support end users in making the secure thing to do, the easy thing to do.

What We Value

  • B.S./M.S. in Computer Science, Engineering, Information Systems, Math, Physics, or equivalent experience
  • 4+ years experience working in Developer Operations
  • Experience working with AWS, Azure, or GCE
  • Experience with managing and developing on highly-available and distributed software
  • Experience with PowerShell, as well as a popular Linux scripting language (Python, Bash, or Go)
  • Comfortable working in a rapidly changing environment with dynamic objectives
  • Ability to continuously learn, work independently, and make decisions with minimal supervision
  • Exposure to infrastructure-as-code frameworks like Terraform and Cloudformation

An Insider's view of Palantir Technologies

What are some social events your company does?

My favorite social events are all the events centered around our kids! It allows teammates to connect not only on work projects but parenthood hacks, funny stories and work life balance! The kids always leave happy and asking if they can come to work with us again tomorrow!

Office Operations Analyst

What projects are you most excited about?

I’m most excited about projects that help people – either by letting them do more, or do what they’re already doing faster and better. I work on developer tooling, productivity, and infrastructure, so I get plenty of chances to do that at Palantir, building out tooling and solutions that help our developers deliver.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I love the way I’m supported in my growth at Palantir — the design culture is centered around critically asking ourselves how we want to grow and how we get there. I’ve been able to spend meaningful time on areas I’ve wanted to improve on guided by great mentors, while having ownership of complex, high-impact problem spaces.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I love that our office embraces social activity outside of work! We have office softball and basketball teams, various clubs like the board game club, and regularly scheduled events like Friday happy hour. These are opportunities to get to know your colleagues in a different environment and make new friends in New York!
