James Boyd

CEO, Co-Founder


I’m James - co-founder and CEO. I built great software at Palantir Technologies, carried heavy rucksacks in Army Special Forces, and took an indulgent number of PhysEd classes at Stanford. Favorite military attire: smoking jacket & ranger panties. Fun fact: I always sang “Angie” by the Rolling Stones in partner force karaoke sessions. It was always terrible.


  • Honors graduate at Stanford, Army Infantry School, Special Forces Leadership Course & Special Forces Qualification Course
  • Led Palantir's business with Special Operations, developed techniques that used military structure as a lever, growing footprint by 30x and increasing annual revenue by 40x
  • Developed products that went on to drive billions of contract revenue across multiple organizations in the US and internationally
