Posted on Thursday, May 30, 2024

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.

The Business Systems team is responsible for building and improving the many business systems that enables Anduril to accomplish its mission. Anduril’s supply chain, accounting, sales & growth, people, engineering, field maintenance, quality, manufacturing, and many more teams rely on the technology built by us. We work across the company to ensure we have the tools and capabilities necessary for mission success.

The People Systems Solution Architect will be responsible for leading the discovery, (re)design, implementation, and ongoing optimization of our People Systems (HRIS, ATS, Payroll, Staffing, etc.) to meet the growing needs of our company. The successful candidate will serve as the primary liaison between the People Org (inclusive of Talent Acquisition, People Ops, Business Partners), Business Systems, other stakeholder teams (Finance, Analytics, business lines), and external vendors to ensure that our People Systems solutions are effective, efficient, and aligned with our business objectives.

Key Responsibilities

You will be responsible for:

  • Lead the discovery, designing, and implementation, and optimization of core People workflows into People Systems, ensuring alignment with People Org’s strategy and business goals.
  • Serve as the technical expert and point of contact for the People Org, providing support, troubleshooting, and training to users.
  • Collaborate with People, Business Systems, and Analytics to develop and implement system enhancements, including the creation of custom reports, dashboards, and interfaces.
  • Work closely with People teams to optimize processes and workflows inside their systems for improved efficiency and user experience.
  • Liaise with external vendors and consultants to resolve any technical issues and ensure that services are delivered according to contractual agreements.
  • Develop and maintain detailed documentation for procedures, system configurations, and process flows.
  • Stay current with trends and developments in People technology to drive innovation and improvements within the organization.

Required Characteristics:

Anduril is an extremely fast-paced defense technology startup that is rapidly scaling itself. Our culture is one of ambition, hard work, relentless pursuit of excellence, and deliberate disruption. The successful candidate will be one who demonstrates the follow core characteristics:

  • Bias for Action - they ask for forgiveness, not permission, and hate the idea of waiting around to be told what to do. They’ve never seen a wall you haven’t wanted to run through!
  • Outcome-Oriented - They determine what the business needs and work backwards from those outcomes, rather than working forwards from a particular system’s capabilities
  • Customer Focused - They display deep user empathy to boost engagement and build experiences that delight
  • Dive Deep - They sweat the details and roll up their sleeves to uncover the root causes for systemic issues. They eat metrics for breakfast!
  • Ownership - They care deeply not just about their program, but for all the business outcomes that their program supports, holding themselves accountable for everything it both does and fails to do
  • Agility - They change directions easily and without regret, quickly adapting to shifting business priorities
  • First Principles Thinking - They approach problems and develop solutions not based on what a vendor recommends or because it’s how they did things at their last job, but from a deep appreciation of what is best for the enterprise

Required Qualifications

  • 7+ years of experience in HR technology, with at least 2 years in a solution architecting position
  • Strong technical knowledge of common People Systems, such as Workday, Oracle, SAP SuccessFactors, Rippling, or similar systems.
  • Have led multiple RFPs for people systems (namely, HRIS)
  • Experience with system integrations, data migration, and change management.
  • Excellent analytical, problem-solving, and project management skills.
  • Strong communication and interpersonal abilities, with the capacity to interact effectively at all levels of the organization.
  • Knowledge of HR operations and experience in process improvement.
  • Familiarity with HR compliance and data protection regulations.
