Aurora has a number of great team-building events and opportunities to celebrate our successes. These activities have ranged from laser tag to happy hours and sunset cruises on the San Francisco Bay.

Peter

Sales Operations

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I work with designers and engineers within my cross-functional team, as well as folks from customer success, sales, business development, and senior leadership. The problems we solve are often inherently difficult and are always focused on supporting our customers to get more solar onto roofs, which feels like a great thing to spend my time on!

Janet

Senior Product Manager

What are some things you learned at the company?

Following a hyper-growth year, I've developed invaluable skills to identify customer needs and pain points. Additionally, I've developed a curiosity for solving bigger, more complex problems in the solar industry. The sales team is goal-oriented and fosters a cohesive environment where each challenge is acknowledged, evaluated, and embraced.

Morgan

Account Executive

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

One of Aurora Solar's core values is "outcome over ego", which means that anyone in the company is empowered to speak up and contribute. I have seen the magic that happens when you empower a group of incredibly talented people to solve challenging problems that matter. That, to me, is what makes Aurora Solar a truly special place to work at.

Chris

Co-Founder

What makes someone successful on your team?

My team is successful when we combine a really good understanding of our customers' needs, their business goals, and solar industry trends, along with deep knowledge of how our product works, and ways to come up with creative solutions that can achieve our customers' goals.
