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.
Anduril’s Mission Engineering function is seeking a software engineer to join our C2 team. C2 is the group at Anduril that focuses on building hardware and software solutions to connect sensors and distribute data across all domains, to all forces, enabling a scaled convergence of effects across a dynamic battle-space.
We operate at a global scale in order to achieve inter-service cooperation and bring machine-informed decision making to the forefront of all that we do. C2 is unique in that it impacts across all business lines at Anduril - and is a driver for adoption of new products and growth for the entire business.
