Job Description:

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 UAS Design Team is seeking a power electronics engineer to join our team. The UAS design team is responsible for designing the next generation of autonomous fixed wing aircraft. These platforms are designed to leverage the Lattice architecture, pushing into challenging environments to meet ever evolving customer needs.

As a power electronics engineer, you will be a key contributor to the design, test, and sustainment of multiple air vehicles. The right person for this role has experience in aircraft power system development, from clean sheet conceptual design through development and flight test, understanding how the power system affects (and is affected by) other system design trades. The ability to work collaboratively on a small team is critical, as is comfort working in an accelerated risk-tolerant development environment.


  • Full cycle PCB design including collecting requirements, schematic design, component selection, supervision or completion of layout, bring-up, test, debug and integration with the system.
  • Development of air vehicle electrical power system components (engine power management, power generation, storage, and distribution)
  • Develop system interconnect diagrams and define wire harnesses that connect electronic equipment within the vehicle.
  • Provide support and collaborate within other air vehicle subsystem development constraints
  • Vendor surveys and evaluation to support sourcing for power system components.
  • Conduct peer-level and cross-discipline design reviews
  • Build up and test of power system components through lab, ground, and flight tests
  • Low-level firmware development for bring-up and test
  • Root cause analysis in support of field operations


  • Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering or equivalent, with 5+ years of experience
  • Experience with Power circuit design for motors and batteries
  • Experience with electrical power generation
  • Competence with test equipment such as oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, thermal chambers, current-probes, and automation of tests.
  • Familiarity with standard interfaces such as Ethernet, CAN, I2C, SPI, PCIe, USB, etc.
  • Familiarity with common MCU, CPU, FPGA devices and technologies.
  • Knowledge of modern analog and digital electronics and electronic circuits.
  • Comfortable with a variety of electronic CAD tools (Altium preferred, Eagle and others acceptable)
  • Experience in design for signal integrity / power integrity.
  • U.S. Person status is required as this position needs to access export controlled data.


  • Experience in hybrid-electric design
  • Experience with aircraft power systems

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!
