Hadrian — Manufacturing the Future

Hadrian is building autonomous factories that help aerospace and defense companies make rockets, jets, and satellites 10x faster and 2x cheaper. Our CEO, Chris Power, discusses the importance of what we're building in this video.

We are a lean but mighty team (and growing!) people that are passionate about building critical infrastructure to support the nation and the advancement of humanity.

To support our ambitious vision, we have raised > $200M from Lux Capital, A16Z, Founders Fund, Construct Capital, Caffeinated Capital, and more.

About this role

As a foundational software engineer on our data platform engineering team, you will lead the charge on a variety of projects writing software to aggregate, store, and make sense of data. 

Examples of possible work include everything from building data warehousing for ERP and machine data, building software agents to get data off of machines, and building certified data sets to enable operations and business intelligence use of data. 

You will be challenged to think creatively and solve complex data integration problems. You will work cross functionally with production experts, software engineers, and machining specialists to develop novel solutions working toward fully automated factories.

    • Scope, architect, implement, and deploy critical applications that will drive revenue and make a positive impact in the world
    • Build and manage a robust data warehouse and write software to coordinate and deploy data pipelines
    • Conceptualize and own the data architecture for multiple large-scale projects
    • Create and contribute to data frameworks that span on-premises and cloud infrastructure improve the efficacy of logging machine data, while working with data infrastructure to triage issues and resolve.
    • Solve our most challenging machine data integration problems, utilizing optimal ETL patterns, frameworks, query techniques, sourcing from structured and unstructured data sources.
    • Collaborate with machine engineers, product managers, and data scientists to understand data needs, representing key data insights visually in a meaningful way.
    • Get to build alongside an incredible team of software engineers, mechanical engineers, operators, and the best machinists/CAM programmers in the world

This Might be a Good Fit if You..

    • Have extensive experience shipping modern, data-centric applications (our data systems use Argo-Workflows, Dagster, Superset, Aurora, RDS, S3, and back-ends are Go and Python, with gRPC/Avro and Kafka as our messaging platform)
