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.

As a People Data Analyst, you will leverage data to derive insights that will inform people-related strategies and drive process improvement. You will apply technical expertise to build, maintain, and analyze complex data sets, make recommendations, and implement solutions that increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the people analytics function.

  • You have an incredibly high execution bar and will see projects through to completion which will include conception, gathering customer input, implementation, and iteration.
  • Proficiency in SQL, with the ability to write complex and nuanced queries against new or unfamiliar data sets (and if you’re not proficient, you have the aptitude and ambition to become fluent!)
  • Experience working with data visualization tools (e.g. Tableau, Power BI)
  • You're user-centric, and know how the outputs of your work - data, process, or tooling - will impact those who touch it.
  • High ownership and low ego, approaching everything with clear outcome orientation and a high degree of humility

  • Familiarity with HRIS or ATS systems, and experience working with data in these systems
