Anduril is a defence technology company, bringing Silicon Valley talent and funding to the defence sector. Our technology helps our customers solve their toughest challenges by enabling them to make better, more informed decisions in life-and-death situations. We’ve assembled a diverse team of experts in artificial intelligence, computer vision, sensor fusion, optics, and data analysis that are creating software and hardware solutions to radically evolve the capabilities of the UK and our allies. If you are passionate about solving problems that have real impact, come join Anduril and build the future of defence.

At Anduril we are developing autonomous systems capable of terminal guidance, long range intelligence collection, precision navigation, and unsupervised autonomy. Ghost, Anvil, Altius, Dive and other developmental autonomous 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 sensed inputs processed at the edge, and coordinates behavioral responses for groups of assets.

Anduril is establishing its UK engineering presence, and we are looking for systems engineers with experience in autonomy, sensing and robotics to help design and manage the next generation of Anduril’s autonomous systems. As a Systems Engineer in the UK, you will need to be familiar with simulation and rapid prototyping development to drive complex mission-oriented engineering design trades, in addition to supporting engineering product development, production, and sustainment through the entire product life cycle.
