Anduril is a defense technology company, bringing Silicon Valley talent and funding to the defense sector. Our technology helps our customers solve their toughest challenges by enabling them to make better, more informed decisions in life-and-death situations. We’ve assembled a diverse team of experts in artificial intelligence, computer vision, sensor fusion, optics, and data analysis that are creating software and hardware solutions to radically evolve the capabilities of the United States and our allies. If you are passionate about solving problems that have real impact, come join Anduril and build the future of defense.

Anduril’s Lattice software platform integrates together many sensors into a single cohesive view of the world, providing needed context for our users. Software engineers at Anduril build the systems that run on our autonomous assets, the networking and backend services that integrate large amounts of sensor data, and the user interfaces that display that data in real time.

We believe in having as little separation between engineers and our users as well as between engineering teams. As a Software Engineer, you will be working alongside a team of engineers with a diverse set of backgrounds and skills. Anduril has a collaborative culture with plenty of opportunities for ownership. As an early member of the team, your decisions today will have a large impact on the company now and into the future, as well as our customers!

We believe that simple systems are easier to understand, maintain, and scale. You will be making trade-offs as you work to ensure that our systems are prepared to scale - so being able to effectively communicate these trade-offs with your teammates is a must.

About the Role

Anduril’s Storage team is a small but critical set of people responsible for the storage systems backing the entire Lattice platform. The Storage team owns the data storage interfaces that Lattice platform developers build off, as well as the deployment, scaling, and resiliency of all production storage systems. With rapidly growing customer deployments, the team continues to scale the storage infrastructure and maintain reliability and observability of the system. The team is responsible for ensuring we have sufficient monitoring and tooling in place to detect and remediate issues before our users are impacted. The team is also working on projects such as standardizing automation of backups and restores, ensuring our storage systems are highly available and running our storage systems reliably in Kubernetes.

We’re looking for someone with a strong background or interest in storage systems. We’d love to hear from you, whether you’re a seasoned systems developer or you’ve just discovered an interest in working with databases.

WHAT YOU’LL DO

  • Design, develop, and support the core database infrastructure used by Anduril’s platform engineers and users to meet critical reliability, availability, and performance goals. Perform capacity planning for the growth of Anduril’s database platform infrastructure
  • Partner with other engineers to make architectural decisions for data storage layers
  • Solve complicated problems that only exist at high scale. Debug production issues across services and levels of the stack, build tooling as needed, and implement the solution
  • Implement proactive monitoring and alerting to detect issues before they impact users. Use a metrics driven approach to identify and root cause performance and scalability bottlenecks in the system
  • Develop subject matter expertise in open source technologies and contribute to open source projects 

REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS

  • Experience in large scale distributed systems, transactions and consistency models
  • Familiarity with algorithms, data structures, storage systems, cloud infrastructure, and distributed data systems
  • Proficiency in a variety of programming languages such as Go, Java, C++, Python, JavaScript, etc.
  • A desire to work on software and applications that have real-world impact
  • U.S. Person status is required as this position needs to access export controlled data.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS

  • Experience working with and maintaining distributed key value stores like FoundationDB
  • Experience working with and contributing to open source projects
  • Experience deploying on a cloud provider such as AWS
  • Experience with on-call rotation

Anduril is an equal-opportunity employer, and we encourage candidates from all backgrounds to apply. If you are someone passionate to work on problems that matter, we’d love to hear from you!

An Insider's view of Anduril

What are some social events your company does?

Anduril has so many amazing events that it is tough to name them all but some of my favorite are: friends and family nights in the office, summer outings, happy hours, bowling events, and the annual Huntington Beach air show. Through the numerous events, I’ve been able to get to know so many coworkers cross function that I wouldn’t meet otherwise.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Taking part in Anduril's flight test team enables the opportunity to not only collaborate with the software and hardware teams on developmental testing but also run the Ghost flight operations routinely.

What are some things you learned at the company?

I work on a multi-agent planning and tasking system. Its goal is to autonomously task assets, like drones, to efficiently complete an objective. Contributing to the ground up design of this cutting edge and complex project encourages a lot of creativity. At the same time, I get to engage in highly technical discussions and implementations.
