About Auror

At Auror, we’re empowering the retail industry to reduce theft and Organized Retail Crime, a $100 billion problem globally. It’s high-volume crime that’s increasingly organised in nature and is putting people, retailers, and communities at risk every day.

Founded in New Zealand, we’re working with some of the best and largest retailers in the world across Australasia, North America, and now the UK.

Auror connects people with intelligence to reduce crime. As a company, we’ve built a high-performing, positive culture with a focus on providing an inclusive environment for a diverse team. If you’re excited about reducing crime and building safer communities, for everyone, then we want you on our team.

You’ll be reporting to Katrina Hau, Director People Experience

I’ve spent the last 10 years in the people and culture space, working across a variety of different sectors including management consultancy, non-profit organisations, social enterprise and tech. As Director of People Experience at Auror, my mission is to build the best place for people to do their best work. I’m forever learning about how to help others (and myself!) do better when it comes to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. I am a proud parent to a wonderful 4 year old human. In my spare time, I love reading webtoons, trying out new recipes in the kitchen, Lego-building (with or without my child), and helping out at my local community centre whenever I can.
