PHOENIX, AZ—If you are looking for a job and you live in or around Phoenix, Arizona, your ship may have just come in. Or rather, your driverless car. Google is hiring $20-per-hour “vehicle safety specialists” for its self-driving car testing in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler, as reported in The Arizona Republic.
Testers will work in teams of two per vehicle, one behind the wheel to take over if necessary. The other tester will sit in the passenger seat with a laptop documenting the testing and submitting reports. The “passenger” needs to focus constantly on a range of software systems and give Google engineers concise written and oral feedback.
