I worked at Palantir Technologies full-time (More than a year)
I learned how to code on the internet about 2 weeks before they hired me, and was still able to have a great experience! I was surrounded by people of similar experience levels so we were all able to learn together.
The kitchen operations analysts didn't appropriately plan for my gluten sensitivity, and they offered genetically modified food! NOT acceptable.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Palantir Technologies (San Francisco, CA) in July 2011.
I had a phone screening with one member of the finance team. The person was very kind but the questions were kind of difficult for an introductory phone screening. There were a lot of questions about security insights as well as policy questions about Palantir. Overall the experience was good but I had the feeling that the questions were not so much related to the role.
