As a Data Analyst on the Business Operations team, you will own the data that informs the operational decision making at Anduril. In this role, you will partner with leadership and teams from across the business — from our Tower and Drone teams to our field operations team to our customer success team — to unpack ambiguous problems and build lasting, scalable analytics solutions. Your work will vary from quick-turn analytical problem solving to process and data improvements and building core dashboards and tables — all in the pursuit of helping grow how Anduril operates and measures itself.

What you’ll do:

  • Support the Business Operations team by owning end-to-end analyses to answer some of the most important questions facing the business. For example, you will:
  • Own the development of data pipelines through to the creation of new dashboards to help the business manage its different business and product lines
  • Support the development of an asset tracking system so Anduril can more effectively manage and monitor it’s core products
  • Partner with our Supply Chain Analyst to develop forecast models to predict hardware failures to help our planning and operations teams effectively manage inventory
  • Serve as the go-to expert for the operations teams on issues relating to data integrity and data availability, including owning the testing and monitoring of the data in the Data Warehouse to ensure data accuracy
  • Help create novel internal data apps that enable stakeholders to use the data in our data warehouse in ways that go beyond what a simple BI tool can do
  • Create Anduril’s first data dictionary to make the current data easily searchable for all users across the company
  • Partner with our Data Engineering team to create new data pipelines to integrate data that comes from our products
  • Proactively identify operational pain points and inefficiencies with cross-functional partners and develop new tools and automated process to solve them


  • You are technically proficient: You have 3+ years as an either a business analyst, data analyst, or data scientist and are fluent in SQL (we use dbt!)
  • You have have experience developing data pipelines using dbt, Airflow, or Fivetran and have learned some best practices along the way for working in a Data Warehouse environment like Redshift, Snowflake, or BigQuery
  • You’ve had a hand in developing a company’s data architecture at a high-growth startup in a way that’s built to last
  • You like to build and enjoy iterating on things quickly.
  • You have a strong bias for action and like to work with high autonomy
  • You are intellectually tenacious and take pride in your work
  • Intellectual tenacity means not being satisfied with the status quo
  • Taking pride in your work means producing something that — if you were the consumer — you’d enthusiastically use
  • You lean into acknowledging your weaknesses and take the idea of feedback and growth seriously
  • You get energy from being a thought partner for others and it excites you to spend time translating operational problems into data problems, and to then going and executing on them

Anduril is an equal-opportunity employer, and we encourage candidates from all backgrounds to apply. If you are someone passionate to work on problems that matter, we’d love to hear from you!
