Palantir is the world’s premier data integration company, focused on solving the most important problems for the world’s most important institutions. Palantir’s data-mining software grew out of technology developed by Paypal, the online payment platform, where engineers built software to uncover fraud. The company went on to work with top government agencies but has since expanded to a list of leading commercial clients. The company leverages unparalleled software engineers and data scientists and a unique business model dependent on incentive alignment, to harness the power of human-computer interaction in the customized products they sell.
