Anduril Imaging’s System Engineering team is seeking an EO/IR Sensor System Engineer to join our team. The System Engineering team is responsible for system architecture definition, trade analyses, and modeling/validating system performance for land, sea, air, and space EO/IR applications.

In this role, you will be responsible for defining EO/IR system architectures.  You will perform radiometric performance modeling as well as laboratory, ground, and flight testing.  To predict real-world performance, you will also model atmospheric and environmental effects for land, sea, and air targets.   You will leverage your analyses to inform system-level architectural trades.  As needed, you will also lead small teams of engineers from concept ideation through system definition and development.

You should have a track record of successfully working on fast-paced, highly technical, interdisciplinary teams.  Proficiency in analytical toolchains or languages (e.g., MATLAB, Python, C++) is required.  Experience with industry standard EO/IR modeling software packages (e.g. MODTRAN, SPIRITS, AFSIM) and/or Model Based Systems Engineering (e.g. Cameo, SysML, etc) is a plus.


  • Adapt or derive physics-based models of sensor system performance and derive requirements based on those models
  • Define system architectures via detailed trade studies and analyses
  • Support both laboratory-based and field-based experiments and demonstrations
  • Lead and manage small teams of engineers, as necessary
  • Engage technically with the hardware, software, and mission teams to define, integrate, and deliver high performance systems to our customers
  • Validate models against laboratory and real world data
  • Coordinate and communicate with both external & internal stakeholders with varying degrees of technical background



  • Model development and validation in one or more domains relevant to remote sensing
  • Ability to decompose complex systems into functional parts, with clearly defined interfaces and requirements for each
  • Experience in system design and development from initial concept through test and delivery to customer
  • Strong laboratory skills (e.g. design of experiments)
  • Must be able to obtain and hold a U.S. security clearance
  • Willingness to travel to test sites, as needed.


  • Knowledge of current and next-generation advanced sensing systems and platforms
  • Advanced sensing domain experience (e.g., EO/IR, LIDAR)
  • Experience with image processing techniques for EO/IR sensors
  • Demonstrated ability to lead a cross-functional team through design trades while meeting program deadlines
  • Advanced proficiency in an analytical toolchains/languages (e.g., MATLAB, Python, C++)
  • Experience with MBSE techniques (e.g. Cameo, SysML, etc)
  • Experience with signature and/or scenario modeling/software packages (MODTRAN, SPIRITS, AFSIM)
