Senior Software Engineer - Flight Controls

Irvine, CA /
Software /
Full-time
At Anduril we are developing unmanned aerial systems capable of terminal guidance, long range intelligence collection, precision relative and global navigation, and unsupervised autonomy. Ghost, Anvil, and other developmental UAS platforms are built to operate in remote environments with limited user input, driving requirements for reliability and autonomy. We have developed an autonomy stack that receives user intent, responds to detections processed at the edge, and coordinates flight patterns for groups of assets, and are looking for successful software engineers to carry this forward onto new cutting edge platforms, working in tandem with aircraft design teams to inform platform architecture.
