Auror is connecting people and intelligence to reduce crime. We’re using technology for good and prioritize privacy by design principles. In partnership with our leading retail partners, we need people with the passion, determination, and innovation required to overcome one of the world's largest problems. If you’re looking to make a difference with and for the people dedicated to stopping crime, for good, then we want you on our team.
