During this event you will be run through coding interview questions and get the chance to ask Engineers about life at Facebook as well as tips and tricks for the interview process.

This event is open to University students studying in EMEA.

Palantir will be hosting a series of virtual events over the next few weeks to help students learn more about Palantir’s work, opportunities and to prep for applying to open positions.

The Ins & Outs of Palantir’s Interview Process: Whether you’ve already applied to Palantir or you are considering starting an application, we invite you to join us a for a panel discussion where we demystify Palantir’s interview process and provide tips on how you can prepare! You’ll hear from interviewers, hiring managers, recruiters and engineers who’ve all gone through our interview process and landed a gig at Palantir. Attendees will walk away with tangible learnings that can be applied to their own interviewing experiences this recruiting season.

Palantir 101 + Covid Demo is an opportunity to learn more about Palantir straight from the source. Government agencies, commercial institutions, and non-profit organizations must wrangle an ever-growing amount of data – raising important ethical questions for software companies like Palantir that help these institutions harness data to advance their missions. But because Palantir is not a consumer-facing company, it’s not always easy to understand what we build and how our products are used. Here’s your chance to learn more directly from our software engineers. Engineers will share how their focus has shifted completely in the last 6 months to help in the fight against COVID-19 on a variety of different fronts. We’ll be sharing demos of our products and answering questions about Palantir and our engineering role.
