Palantir Foundry
Palo Alto & London, Oct 2016 - Present

foundry connects the dots and makes sense of large amounts of data

Palantir Foundry is a "big data" operating system that allows users to integrate and collaboratively analyze, transform, and manage large amounts of data. It helps answer questions like "How can I minimize the cost of my airplane manufacturing process?" or "How can I make the most use of chemical data to more effectively produce pharmaceutical products?". With Foundry, users can shape a cohesive narrative from seemingly disparate points of data.

As a product designer on Foundry (and Palantir in general), I have:

  • Shipped and continuously manage 4 products that allow users to update and monitor the health of datasets (most of them new products, 0 to 1 phase)
  • Conducted user interviews (generative and evaluative) with clients, like Airbus and Credit Suisse, that use these products I've designed
  • Pair closely with a team of front-end and back-end developers during implementation while shaping product roadmaps with product managers and team leads
  • Hold design office hours, rapid prototyping with other product teams without designers and giving them visual and interaction design feedback
  • Mentored a new-graduate designer
  • Written and contributed to developer guidelines
  • Regularly write and circulate RFCs ("Request for Comment" documents), exploring new ideas to make Foundry more intuitive
  • Facilitate and lead design critiques with the London design team
