James Thompson

Hello, I am James. I’m 29, live in San Francisco, and work in tech. I grew up pretty modestly in small towns in FL and WV, read a lot of books on astrophysics and human evolution, got a degree in aerospace, and went to Stanford as an NSF Fellow.

People describe me as curious, creative, and a little crazy. My résumé calls me a product manager, a designer, and an engineer. I see myself as more of a scientist.

Today, I work at the intersection of people and data at Palantir, where I help design and manage products that straight-up blow my mind. We mold messy, complex, raw data into a narrative that ordinary people can read as easily as a Sunday comic—I call this humanizing data. I am endlessly inspired by my colleagues.

If you'd like to get in touch, you can do that by dialing the number below. Until we meet again, be bold and stay curious.

Run and find out!
