Hey M💰FT. It’s a fair question. At a very high level we have a a great culture, strong work ethic, super smart and motivated individuals, an amazing leadership team with expertise in the space, healthy work-life balance, and plenty of upside :) I’ve mentioned this in other threads, but more than happy to connect you with someone internally if you’re ever interested. Feel free to ping 1-1 anytime.
Also, I’ve mentioned this on other threads as well, but I think Aurora has huge potential growth ahead and there’s a lot to why I believe that. Some high level things are that Aurora is operating in a huge TAM (a 5-10 trillion dollar potential industry according to projections), it has an amazing founding team and engineering team with a unique vision and approach, it has world class investing partners (who wouldn’t have invested if they didn’t believe in those kinds of multiples in a certain timeframe), and it’s still very early on in its growth as compared with direct competitors (meaning more upside when it comes to your equity). While nothing is guaranteed when you’re signing up with a startup, Aurora is as good of a bet on being valuable than any startup I’ve been too, especially at this stage. Bottom line: you’re joining a company with an amazing team, strong investors, an almost endless amount of funding, an astronomically large market, and a ton of public interest. It’s the best bet for a privately owned AV company on the market at its stage of growth.
I find it fascinating that "startups" are compared with Google (and potentially Tesla with its x00,000 cars) in a space where Data is a big determinant. Like how does a startup even compete with Google's x million miles driven??
This is a multi-trillion dollar market, so I believe there will be multiple winners. Waymo has a head start on the rest, but Aurora is catching up quickly, since we are *the* independent tech provider in the AV space.
