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.

The Anduril Product Design team designs for multiple form factors across Anduril’s suite of products. We are changing the way our military works – from strategic commanders overseeing multiple missions, to forward-deployed operators controlling autonomous systems. As a Senior Product Designer, you will own the entire lifecycle of design for mission critical features and end-to-end workflows. You will have an immediate impact on real-world operations as you design novel interactions which push the bounds of human-to-machine control. From customer immersion to synthesizing feedback, cross-org collaboration to shipping high craft experiences, you will leverage design thinking to solve challenging problems in complex scenarios. Our design principles revolve around trust, safety, and intentionality. These principles guide our work, shape feedback in critiques, and define the bar we hold ourselves accountable to. The centralized Product Design team is structured around two overarching areas of focus: core platform and strategic pursuits (verticals). This role will partner closely with vertical teams and its customers touching on all-domain command & control, in-vehicle experiences, submersibles, autonomy, and more.
