Deep Learning Engineer

SF Bay Area

At Auro (, we are making autonomous shuttles for transportation within campuses, such as at a university campus, retirement community or a business / corporate park. We’re not just building another self-driving car, we’re completely re-inventing what mobility means for campus environments.

Our first autonomous shuttle is already providing daily shuttle service on a university campus. We are a Y Combinator incubated start-up, and have raised over $2M investment from angel investors and Venture Capitalists. We have been covered extensively in media by MIT Tech ReviewWall Street JournalUSA TodayThe Economic TimesTechCrunch and others. 

We’re seeking engineers who thrive in a fast-paced, challenging environment. The ability to think on your feet, an insatiable curiosity, and an unbridled passion for robotics are critical for success here at Auro.
