The Easiest Job In The World: Drive A Google Self-Driving Car

Written By:

Software giant Google is currently hiring people to 'drive' their driverless cars. Those interested will basically act as nannies for the cars as they drive themselves around the city.

To apply for the position, which Google calls "Vehicle Safety Manager", people residing in the city of Chandler,Arizona, need to have a clean driving record and have no criminal record.

Google will pay these vehicle safety managers, who also apparently need to be able to type 40 words/minute, $20(Rs. 1,337)/hour to keep an eye on the autonomous car and take control in case of an emergency.

Two vehicle safety managers will work together as a team with one behind the wheel and the other in the passenger seat taking notes on a laptop. The team will have to be in the cars for six to eight hours a day, five days a week for 12 to 24 months, depending on their contract.

So if you're someone in the area around Chandler, Arizona, being 'Supernanny' to Google's autonomous cars may just be the easiest job for you.
