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.

What does your typical day look like?

Every day at Anduril is an adventure plucked right out of your favorite Sci-Fi novel. For most people here, it isn't a job - it's just engineers having fun, all while ensuring that our soldiers have the tools they need to succeed.
