It’s like the opposite of Uber and it’s pretty cool.
Tech companies around the world are trying to make safe driver less cars. And for people in Arizona, Google is paying a good chunk of change to someone who will volunteer to sit in a self-driving vehicle and go for a ride. This sounds like the best job in the world, unless of course something unfortunate happens, you know like being driven straight into a building or running over a dog or a human! But that is a really small risk you must be willing to take if you want to be a tester for Google.
According to The Arizona Republic, Google is looking for “drivers” for their self-driving cars.
Guinea pigs Drivers need to have a clean driving record, be able to type 40 words per minute and be in support of the robot uprising that is bound to happen eventually.
So how much can you make for putting your life in the hands of Google and its robot army? $20 an hour.
The drivers will work in pairs, with one person behind the wheel (in case something goes horribly wrong) and another person sitting in the passenger seat taking notes. Google wants to know how the cars handle all types of traffic situations.
This sounds like a pretty interesting job and we wish Google good luck with their venture and also good luck to the drivers, too. You know, they sort of need it.
