Sr. Technical Recruiter

Andrea was born in the former Yugoslavia and grew up in Fort Worth, Texas after her family relocated as war refugees. As a Longhorn since we stepped foot in Texas, Andrea graduated with a degree in Sports Management from the University of Texas. Despite wanting to go into sports, Andrea was also passionate about technology and got her first role as a sales development representative at Oracle. Realizing pretty quickly she liked the relationship building aspect of sales and not so much the actual selling, Andrea moved into a contractor sourced role with Google. Since then she has grown into a full technical recruiter after a couple of years at Amazon and Airbnb. Andrea had been a fan of Cruise for quite awhile and jumped at the chance to apply online when the position opened. From there, it’s been the best ride of her career. After helping to build out the technical program management organization, Andrea is currently working on growing our simulation engineering organization. “Beyond the incredibly kind and thoughtful coworkers, we have some of the most empathetic leaders I have come across and it’s exciting to see what is ahead!”
