Google has definitely expanding its empowerment from technological standpoint up to job provision. It has been months since Google's announcements of its autonomous or self-driving cars mania. In line with this, the company has already been testing self-driving cars in some selected states in the U.S. Now, Google has announced something new for the public that makes money out of it.

According to a web post via The Verge, Google will pay $20 per hour to whoever will be hired as a test driver to its self-driving cars. It sounds so sweet, does it not? In addition, this particular job opportunity is in Arizona. Google is looking for local drivers to be its vehicle safety specialists. It may sound so cool but Google is seeking for competent applicants. Its main job is to be behind the wheel and ready to take over at a moment's notice.

According to Engadget, Google's hiring of autonomous car testers is not as easy as eating pie. It is because the applicant must have a bachelor's degree and has no driving violations committed. In addition, he/she must also be good in communication skills because the job requires submission of daily concise reports and feedbacks. Google also iterated that if the applicant's goal is to go on road tripping inside these Google cars, then the work is not for him/her.

More on the post of The Verge, it says that employees will receive $20 per hour for 6 to 8 hours a day. The job is under 12 to 24 months contract. The employee has to provide the engineering team a concise written and oral feedback. It is also expected from the employees to work with confidentiality and will need to pass in and out training courses. The company is looking to test these cars in desert conditions. The company is also testing its autonomous vehicles in Washington, Kirkland, Texas and California.
