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.
We are working on cutting edge complex systems that need to operate in the harshest of conditions. To support our development and deployments tasks we are building up an Operations Analysis team to guide business strategy and complement our Modeling and Simulation team. This new team will provide rigorous analytical products which will be used to guide product development and convince customers of our value advantage.
You will be a operations analysis swiss-army knife who will interface with stakeholders including internal programs and external customers. You will carefully listen to stakeholder needs and then design rigorous math and physics analyses leading to clear and compelling value propositions. Modeling, Simulation, and Analysis (MS&A) will often complement demonstration events that together leave no doubt that Anduril offers real (not PowerPoint) warfighter capability.


  • Develop model-driven analysis (and often the models themselves)
  • Develop a deep understanding of transformational value of Anduril platform, autonomy, simulation, and perception products
  • Use our advanced internal M&S capabilities to give our analyses and asymmetric advantage over competitors
  • Convey the value through life of AI-powered distributed systems over traditional industrial offerings


  • Military mission MS&A experience. For example, working knowledge of OCA/DCA, ISR, SEAD/DEAD, Electronic Attack, or Long Range Fires missions
  • Platform MS&A experience. For example, value proposition analyses comparisons involving aero, fuel, and signature modeling
  • Payload MS&A experience. For example, physics-based trade-space analyses for radar, EOIR, communications, or weapons payloads
  • Minimum 2 years AFSIM scripting experience, the more the better!
  • Outstanding communication skills to include visual presentation of complex data
  • Nominal proficiency with physics-math scripting of your choice (e.g., MATLAB, SIMULINK, Python+numpy, scipy)
  • Minimum 5 years in relevant Science and/or Engineering related field
  • Must be eligible to obtain and maintain a U.S. TS clearance


  • 5 years in relevant Science and/or Engineering related field; relevant academic experience (BSc., MSc. Phd) qualifies
  • Experience with Tableau
  • Signal processing experience. For example, track fusion and filtering techniques
  • Cost and Logistics MS&A experience: For example, life cycle, operations, and sustainment modeling
  • AFSIM Developer Training or AFSIM Plug-in development experience
  • Advanced proficiency with Mathworks products (MATLAB, SIMULINK etc.)
  • Proficiency with C/C++
