Anduril Industries is a defense technology company with a mission to transform U.S. and allied military capabilities with advanced technology. 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 Motion Designer—you will help develop and deploy the kinetic visual language of the Anduril brand. You’ll be responsible for supporting the look and feel of our identity standards across motion deliverables by rapidly iterating on ideas, addressing points of feedback, and finding compelling visual solutions.

You will create systems and templates alongside our brand designers to optimize team workflows and raise the quality of future projects. Additionally, you will be expected to explore new approaches and techniques in an effort to constantly evolve and define the Anduril motion-scape.
