An Insider's view of Aurora Flight Sciences

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I look forward to coming into work every day, because the office is abuzz with excitement and innovation. Everyone is working on new things and pushing the boundaries of aerospace. The hallway chatter ranges from topics in advanced aerodynamics to when the next rock-climbing meet-up will be. I imagine this is how NASA felt during the space race.

What makes someone successful on your team?

To be successful one has to be an optimist and take initiative. We are working on projects that have not been done before so every new idea or approach needs to be welcomed with creativity and an open mind. Learning is endless here, but it is up to the individual to ask questions and take ownership of their work.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

At Aurora creativity is a necessity. Most of our projects are at the cutting edge of what’s possible and require solving one or more engineering problems that have never before been solved before. It’s in our DNA and we encourage this from Day 1.
