In it for the long haul: teaming up with PACCAR to build and deploy self-driving trucks
Today we’re excited to share we’ve reached a significant milestone in delivering our first product, a driverless truck.
Win together means working and succeeding as a team — a team with different viewpoints and comprised of people with diverse backgrounds. In our mission, we talk about delivering the benefits of self-driving technology broadly, which means serving a diverse population. And that means we need a diverse team building our technology.
This week we had the chance to highlight the work of many of Aurora’s women when we hosted a Girl Geek event in our San Francisco office. The evening included tech talks, a panel on personal and professional brands, and of course — lots of networking.
Software Engineer Jessica Smith spoke about simulation, Technical Operations Specialist Haley Sherwood talked about our machine learning datasets, and Mapping Operations Lead Elizabeth Dreimiller spoke about how we are building maps at Aurora.
We held a panel discussion about how our personal brands — intentionally or not — play a larger role in our careers. The panel featured women leaders from teams across Aurora. You can watch a video recap of our event.
Here are the top 10 things we heard and learned:
Here at Aurora, we take career growth seriously and we were honored to have more than 150 women attend our event. We’re always looking for more great people to join our team. If you’re interested in our open roles, you can learn more here: https://aurora.tech/careers .
