Since our founding in 2017, Aurora has always had a headquarters in Pittsburgh, and it’s been home to many firsts. It’s where we drove down a test track in autonomy for the first time, and where we first autonomously navigated tunnels and drove in snow. We were also the first AV company to receive official authorization from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to test our cars in the state. With more than 150 employees in our Pittsburgh office, we continue to grow our team here and have more than 50 current job openings for software and hardware engineers, vehicle operators, and more.
Today we’re excited to announce that we’ve taken over new office space at 1600 Smallman Street in the vibrant Strip District. With more than 100,000+ square feet, our new space will be home to a cross-section of employees — from engineers and technical operations to recruiting and IT — and features a shop to house our vehicle fleet.
“The Strip District is a place steeped in history and character, but always evolving and vibrant. You can say the same for the City of Pittsburgh and the Strip’s latest neighbor, Aurora. I am so happy they have settled in the new Smallman Street corridor and continue to call Pittsburgh home,” said Pittsburgh Mayor William Peduto.
