Our Mission

To deliver the benefits of self-driving technology safely, quickly, and broadly

Aurora values

At Aurora, we believe how you do something matters as much as what you do.

Operate with integrity

We do the right thing even if it delays us or makes us less money.

Be reasonable

We embody the "reasonable person principle". We expect one another to use good judgment with the best interests of the company and our partners in mind.

No jerks

We debate and solve hard technical problems. We don’t waste time battling over personalities and egos and we have no tolerance for time-wasters and nonsense.


We’re solving one of the most challenging problems of our generation. We get there by cultivating a culture of depth, focus and rigorous engineering.

Set outrageous goals

We set goals that are outrageous because they require us to focus and make sacrifices. We make tradeoffs to set and reach milestones along the way that make each goal attainable, not unreasonable. We make more progress by achieving 70% of the outrageous than by achieving 100% of the average.

Win together

We are building a company, and in turn technology, to serve people and communities broadly. We derive strength from the unique perspectives and experiences that reflect the diversity of the world we live in. To benefit from this diversity, we seek to listen as often as we speak and challenge each other to think and act in new ways.
