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.

Anduril’s Deployment Operations group is seeking a Technical Operations Engineer to join our
team. This is a Costa Mesa based role and not eligible for remote/hybrid work.

As a member of Anduril’s Technical Operations team, you will be responsible for deploying and
supporting Anduril’s products all over the world. You will go forward with products early on in
their lifecycle and work with engineering teams to iteratively improve them over time. The
challenges you will encounter are innumerable and unpredictable, but you will be expected to
take ownership of delivering the technical solution.

You must be both a teacher and a student, able to coach teammates on systems that you’ve
gained intimate familiarity with and then transition into mastering the next system. You’ll also
guide users through product employment and troubleshooting, advise account managers on how
to structure an operation to ensure technical success, and communicate specific
recommendations for product refinement to engineering teams.

  • Proven ability to master a technical system and support it in austere environments. Must
    demonstrate an innate drive to be self-sufficient across the breadth of a technical system.
  • Strong aptitude for problem solving in unstructured situations at the interface of
    hardware, software, and networking. Ability to drive challenging and vague technical
    problems to clarity and resolution.
  • Naturally inquisitive, able to independently research and learn new technical components
    or concepts.
  • Ability to develop complex operational and logistics plans to move people and things
    quickly, over long distances, in unfamiliar locations.
  • U.S. Person status is required as this position needs to access export-controlled data.
  • Willingness to travel to remote regions of the world for up to two months at a time.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills


  • B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical
    Engineering, or related technical field.
  • Prior military or overseas contracting experience.
  • Ability to hold and maintain a US DoD TS//SCI security clearance.
  • Familiarity with Linux OS. Comfortable obtaining data from software platforms using
    command-line tools.
  • Strong mechanical aptitude with tools and electronics.
  • Knowledge and operational background using Radio Frequency (RF) and Electronic
    Warfare (EW) systems.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of wireless communications architectures
