We are ecstatic to introduce BreakLine Education alum Hamza Huda, who recently accepted a role as a Site Reliability Operations Analyst at Palantir Technologies! Check out his story, here!

“I was born in London, and raised in Europe. I went to university and went into finance for a year; but, I started to get bored and wanted to do something more meaningful. So I went to the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst, and became an officer a year later in 2013. 

I was commissioned into Blues and Royals, which is a regiment of Her Majesty’s Household Cavalry. I later supported special operations. 

I was surprised to be admitted into BreakLine, as a Brit! But I jumped at the chance.

Given my military experience, I was excited to leverage my skill sets within the defense technology sector. I was familiar with Palantir from my time in the Army, and was thrilled to interview with them. At times during the process, I got pretty nervous, and called Shari Schussel thinking 'I’m not sure if I’m going to get this'. However, when I finally got the call from Palantir, that was one of the best days of my life!

I have a lot of advice to pass along to other BreakLiners: one, know how to get your ‘bump’ on and find something that lifts your spirits; two, have good music; three, speak to as many people as possible; four, be ruthless; five, know your strengths; six, be humble; seven, say thank you; eight, speak to as many people as possible (again); nine, welcome all advice; ten, make time to help others while you’re being helped; eleven, expect anxiety and self-doubt; twelve, work on your strengths and be able to express them; thirteen, be comfortable with your weaknesses; fourteen, remember not everyone gets into BreakLine, so being here is an achievement; fifteen, read all of the material you’re given; sixteen, take time off if you need to in order to fully focus on the search and journey

Hamza, we’re grateful you’re part of our community. Congratulations to you, Aidan Dowling, and the rest of the Palantir Technologies team for this phenomenal win!
