Thinking about running over as Sr SWE

Hows equity?

    Culture is super toxic. It mimics old school Google and new age Uber. They’re building a product and not a company. Amazing team and leaders but not worth it. You can’t fox with the leaders. Speak up and get the ax. I know some that were fired for no reason. Tread with caution.

      I worked at Uber and was there for over 4 years. While I have a deep sense of pride in my background there, I can say with full confidence that working at Aurora is much more enjoyable than my last couple years at Uber and is on par with the level of excitement I had in Uber in the early days (sub 350 people). Every company has it’s quirks and disagreeable individuals, but Aurora is comprised of some of the best people I have ever worked with and I honestly can’t recommend it more.

      Untrue. Talent and leadership yes, culture is bad. Failed to hire HR early on cost them. They say “no jerks” but plenty on staff.

      Not exactly sure what Lyfted is talking about, but the culture here is great. Couldn’t ask for better co-workers; the people here are competent yet humble. It seems that Lyfted either never worked here (and is still at Lyft) or he was let go (explaining his poor remarks in every Aurora related chat)

  • AD bubble will burst soon and only the big boys will make it. Tier1 suppliers will Continue to exist supplying the cameras, radars, etc... Uber, Lyft will be the service, OEM will make the cars/robots. I don’t see a place for these small players. I am sorry! That’s what I think.

      Not quite true. Lots of SW work to do and no one even close

      The goal of small players is to be aquired by big boys.

      Cameras are pretty well commoditized. I doubt AV companies will waste resources building those (still plenty of software work to do there though). Radar, LiDAR, and other sensors, however, add value if they’re well-designed and manufactured in-house. If the OEMs could make the robots, they wouldn’t be investing billions into “small players” to build them instead.
