About Epirus

Epirus is a high-growth technology company developing software-defined high-power microwave (HPM) systems with devastating counter-electronics effects on modern drone threats. The Epirus Leonidas HPM family of products, empowered by innovations in AI and microelectronics, is human safe and cost-effective. Distinguishing itself from lasers, Leonidas excels against drone swarms while also bending the cost curve back in DoD's favor - taking drone-defeat costs from millions of dollars per drone to pennies on the dollar.

Job Summary: The Senior Manager of System Modeling and Analysis will lead a team of senior career engineers and data scientists responsible for operational analysis, radar mode development, high-power microwave waveform techniques, and system modeling.
