Delivering a self-driving product that is safer than a human driver requires a world-class team that can tackle the problems of today and the challenges of tomorrow.
We’re focused on building a company of leaders and experts who bring a diversity of experiences and perspectives along with a collaborative culture that connects the broad experiences across our team to unlock innovative solutions to self-driving. That’s why we're excited to welcome two new senior leaders to Aurora: VP of Talent Acquisition Michelle Rife and VP of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Corey Flournoy.
Michelle Rife, VP of Talent Acquisition
Michelle has more than 25 years of experience building and leading recruiting teams at a variety of tech companies including Facebook, GE Digital, and Playstation, and most recently led Global Analytics Recruiting at Facebook. Her experience of bringing creative ways to approach recruiting to meet the business needs of big and small companies will be vital to strengthening Aurora with experts from across industries.
Corey Flournoy, VP of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)
Corey is a recognized leader in DEI programming with more than 30 years of experience in strategy development, executive coaching, and employee engagement.

He joins to continue building a high-caliber team and culture that bridges the many backgrounds and perspectives at Aurora.
As we build the team to deliver the benefits of self-driving technology, it’s important that the people behind our mission reflect the broad perspectives of the communities our technology will serve.
