Anduril’s Deployment Operations team is seeking a Mission Integration Engineer to join our ground-based air defense program. As a member of the Mission Integration team, you will serve as a bridge between product engineering and deployed operations. The Mission Integration team works to ensure that Anduril’s growing suite of products achieve total mission success in austere, remote environments. To this end, you will be embedded within a product team where you will leverage your operations and engineering experience to shape and deploy a solution of maximum effectiveness and reliability. Your scope will vary between products but can include focus areas as disparate as: design for serviceability, reliability engineering, manufacturing at scale, root- cause analysis, software tooling and user-experience improvements, pre- deployment testing and configuration, authoring of work instructions and user training materials, and development of qualification test procedures. In addition, you will be a core participant in all customer demonstrations and early deployments of the product. The knowledge you gain in these deployments will inform your mission integration engineering efforts and allow you to instruct others on the deployment and operation of the product.

  • Extensive hands-on (field operations, manufacturing, or test) engineering experience
  • Strong ability to solve problems in unstructured situations at the interface of hardware, software, and operations
  • Experience working with cross-functional engineering teams and external customers; demonstrated ability to collect differing opinions and reconcile them in order to achieve agreement on what ‘right’ looks like
  • Aptitude for building internal and external relationships, and utilizing these connections in the pursuit of product excellence and mission success
  • Experience performing data-driven root cause analysis on complex systems
  • Demonstrated ability to train peers or customers on the operation of a product
  • Willingness to travel up to 50%
  • Must be able to obtain and hold a U.S. Top Secret security clearance
