The Role
Palantir Technologies seeks a motivated Corporate Paralegal to join our Legal Team, known internally as Legal Ninjas. In this role, you'll apply your transactional expertise with an established private company, eagerly helping manage the end-to-end administration of Palantir’s global equity incentive plans, and happily immersing yourself in Excel and Shareworks. You are keen to join a team that cultivates Palantir's equity philosophy, connects with folks across the Palantir community, and sees itself as key to Palantir’s mission.

As a Corporate Paralegal, you are extremely organized, resourceful, and detail oriented..

We are also a team that values teamwork, creativity, and a sense of humor. Whether running solo or working collaboratively, we strive to achieve great results on challenging, time-sensitive projects. Equipped with your eagle eye for minute details, commitment to delivering information in a concise and understandable way, and boundless reserve of energy and self-motivation, you’re excited to join us and contribute to a dynamic company solving some of the world’s hardest problems.
