Aurora works at the intersection of rigorous engineering and applied machine learning to address one of the most challenging, important and interesting opportunities of our generation: transforming the way people and goods move.
Founded by three of the world’s leaders in the self-driving vehicle industry, we design the software and hardware that will power the next revolution in transportation. We bring partners together to move more quickly than any one company can move alone.


Some of the smartest, most innovative, well-funded teams worldwide are currently tackling the autonomous vehicle (AV) challenge with hopes of transforming societies in profound ways. Given the complexity of this task, teams are leveraging state-of-the-art techniques in computer science (programming, AI, machine learning, and HMI), electrical engineering (sensing and compute) and mechanical engineering (vehicle, assemblies, and control). Aurora Innovation is one of those companies with the core ambition of building an AV that can operate in all situations (a.k.a. level 5 autonomy). Our approach is based on a healthy mix of proven engineering techniques, combined with cutting-edge research in Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning. Our team is composed of pioneers in the industry who previously worked at leading companies and labs, who are all working together to bring the world AVs.
If you’re passionate about helping solve one of the most ambitious robotics projects (ever!), we encourage you to join our team for an internship. Our philosophy is to have the students embedded with day-to-day engineers to help solve relevant challenges and making a direct impact on the product we’re building. There is nothing like “getting your hands dirty” and learn from the best.
We are looking for passionate, self-motivated students with experience in programming (C++, Python, Java), Machine Learning/Computer Science (Planning and Perception), Electrical Engineering (embedded software, board design, FPGA, GPU, sensing) and also Mechanical Engineering (automotive experience). 

  • BS/MS or PhD in Robotics, Computer Science, EE, MechE, or related field
  • Excellent C++ and /or Python programming and software design skills (for CS or EE)
  • Excellent CAD software design skills and automotive engineering (for MechE)
  • Strong mathematical skills, including linear algebra, numerical methods, and stochastic tools
  • Passion for solving challenging, impactful problems
