About Aurora Flight Sciences

FIVE REASONS TO JOIN AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES

1. WE’RE BUILDING AMERICA’S NEXT X-PLANE
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) awarded Aurora the prime contract to develop and build the Agency’s Vertical Takeoff and Landing Experimental Plane (VTOL X-Plane). This historic breakthrough in aviation technology could lead to revolutionary advancement of the U.S. military’s mission capabilities. At Aurora, you have a chance to be part of the team aiming to redefine the future of vertical flight.

2. GROUNDBREAKING RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
Don’t wake up ten years from now wondering “what if?” This is your chance to be a part of some of the most exciting advancements of our lifetime: unmanned aircraft systems and robotics.

3. SIZE DOES MATTER
With a workforce of nearly 500 employees, our engineers never get lost in the crowd. At Aurora, engineers personally move their ideas forward in the innovation process and are there on the flight line when their design takes to the air.

4. JOB SECURITY IN A CULTURE OF INNOVATION
The projections for the growth of the drone industry are astronomical. At Aurora we are using that growth to inspire new and innovative technological breakthroughs that have real-world applications. From building robots that fly aircraft, to designing drones that stay aloft for months at a time, our engineers innovate with a passion.

5. BE A PART OF HISTORY
Four words you’ll never hear Aurora management say to our engineers are “don’t push the boundaries.” Our founder and others in senior management were young MIT engineers when they designed, built and flew a human-powered aircraft that set the world distance record for a flight from Crete to Santorini. Fast forward a quarter century, and our team set the world unmanned endurance record with the 80-hour flight of our Orion drone for the U.S. Air Force. Constantly pushing boundaries and breaking the innovation mold is how our company’s founders have always operated.
