Born in Amorebieta-Etxano, Biscay, Aurtenetxe joined Athletic Bilbao's youth system at the age of 10, arriving from neighbouring SD Amorebieta. On 16 December 2009, even before playing his first game with the reserves, the 17-year-old appeared for the first team in the UEFA Europa League, playing the full 90 minutes in a 0–3 group stage home loss against SV Werder Bremen; he made his La Liga debut on 28 August 2010, starting and being booked in a 1–0 win at Hércules CF.
Aurtenetxe was definitely promoted to the main squad for the 2011–12 season, under new manager Marcelo Bielsa. He played 54 official matches during the campaign and scored four goals, to help the Basque reach both the Copa del Rey and the Europa League finals – he netted one in the club's 1–2 away loss against Sporting Clube de Portugal in the latter competition's semifinals (4–3 aggregate win).
