Anduril is a defense technology company, bringing Silicon Valley talent and funding to the defense 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, data analytics and Unmanned Systems design and fabrication including air, land, sea and subsurface vehicles. We are creating solutions to radically evolve the capabilities of the United States and our allies. If you are passionate about solving problems that have real impact, come join Anduril and build the future of defense.

We are working on cutting edge complex systems that must deliver critical capability on accelerated timelines to support our development and deployments tasks we are building a strong Systems Engineering team Model Based Systems Engineering team to guide Digital Engineering strategy and complement our Modeling and Simulation, Product Engineering, and Business Development teams. This new team will provide rigorous Model Based System Engineering artifacts which will be used in support of product development, delivery, and sustainment.


    • You will work closely with program chief and sub-system lead engineers to guide the system development process from concept, development, production and fielding.
    • You will develop artifacts based on program needs and work closely with functional areas to ensure work products are complete and accurate.
    • Collaborate with stakeholders including internal reviews and external customer engagements to shape concepts of operations and functional requirements
    • Translates customer requirements, constraints, and operational expectations into product designs.
    • Develop system architecture definition and decomposition. Lead team through program milestone reviews.
    • Perform multi-discipline requirements definition, develop functional/physical block diagrams and define interface requirements. Analyze vertical/horizontal requirements traceability.
    • Performs trade studies and evaluates alternatives.
    • Conducts technical risk and opportunity analysis and develops mitigation and capture plans.
    • Participate in the development of our Digital and Systems Engineering Strategy and Implementation.
