Anduril Industries is a defense technology company with a mission to transform U.S. and allied military capabilities with advanced technology. By bringing the expertise, technology, and business model of the 21st century’s most innovative companies to the defense industry, Anduril is changing how military systems are designed, built and sold. Anduril’s family of systems is powered by Lattice OS, an AI-powered operating system that turns thousands of data streams into a realtime, 3D command and control center. As the world enters an era of strategic competition, Anduril is committed to bringing cutting-edge autonomy, AI, computer vision, sensor fusion, and networking technology to the military in months, not years.


Anduril’s Land Systems team is seeking a Systems Engineer to join our team. The Land Systems team at Anduril develops software for land-based robotic systems, leveraging software infrastructure built by other Anduril product teams. The team is responsible for taking manned and unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) robots from paper sketches to operational systems. We work in close coordination with specialist teams like Perception, Autonomy, and Hardware/Manufacturing to solve some of the hardest problems facing our customers.

We’re looking for a high-ownership, independent, model-based Systems Engineer to align engineering expectations and outputs with government needs, working across our hardware and software teams at Anduril to produce first-rate engineering outputs for our customers. The right person for this role will be leading the development of system architecture and managing it from requirements elicitation to deployment.

  • An in-depth understanding of computers, including knowledge in the realms of networking, security, and/or distributed systems.
  • Experience developing various model based system engineering artifacts, especially in compliance with a government reference architecture (e.g., Operational Viewpoints, System Viewpoints, activity diagrams, use case diagrams, BDDs, IBDs, parametric diagrams)
  • Experience performing systems engineering analyses, including maintaining a technical budget, managing software or electrical interfaces, conducting gated design reviews, performing trade studies, developing design or process documentation, maintaining system specifications, developing verification plans, performing functional and requirements decomposition, and performing operational analysis, especially using a model-based approach.
  • Outstanding communication skills to include presentation of developed artifacts
  • Must be eligible to obtain and maintain a U.S. TS clearance


  • Experience with unmanned ground systems / autonomous vehicles development programs
  • Experience with armored vehicle development programs
  • INCOSE Systems Engineering Professional (SEP) Certification
