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.

The Air Dominance and Strike Division is one of Anduril’s fastest growing divisions. Our goal is to fundamentally reshape the way future peer to peer conflicts are fought by developing next generation collaborative combat aircraft, missiles, and the software that powers these autonomous weapons. The AD&S Operations team is a small but mighty team of business generalists who enable the division to scale through hyper-growth while breaking as few things as possible. We’re looking for someone to help us build out the business infrastructure required to grow this into Anduril’s largest division over the next few years.

Here’s what you’ll do:

  • Build out and run the staffing machine for our organization, enabling efficient recruiting and allocation of resources in partnership with Division Leads as the organization scales from 500 to 1000s
  • Support our corporate planning cycle by helping to build out and monitor performance against goals, financial plans, and headcount plans so we can hit our aggressive growth targets
  • Organize and manage the division’s classified infrastructure ensuring networks and facilities exist when and where they’re needed so our engineering teams can design and test our technologies
  • Manage large scale real estate investments so we can manufacture and test our drones, missiles, and other technologies
  • Support internal team operations like new employee onboarding, all hands, internal business reviews, and other division-wide events so that we rapidly ramp new employees and maintain a culture of “doing things differently”
  • Support M&A integrations ensuring not only the technologies but also the people, processes, and systems are integrated into our division
  • Execute on special projects across staffing, finance, real estate, and other business infrastructure as they arise

Here’s who you are:

  • You love solving complex, ambiguous, cross-functional problems in a people-centric way
  • You’re both high ownership and low ego, approaching everything with strong outcome orientation and high humility
  • You’re highly detail oriented and data-driven
  • You’re discerning and an incredibly fast learner
  • You’re tactical and don’t only sit at a 30,000 foot level
  • You have 4-6 years of varied experience in an operating role at a high-growth technology company, starting a venture, or in finance or consulting

Required Qualifications:

  • Must be eligible to obtain and maintain a U.S. TS clearance
