In an exciting move this summer, Tesla, the renowned electric car manufacturer, is on a mission to recruit drivers across North America. The goal? To accumulate high-quality data that will drive the improvement of their vehicles’ performance.
Tesla’s autopilot and full self-driving features have always been a hot topic. While it’s often said that Tesla customers serve as testers, the automaker underscores the importance of in-house testing too.
With a fleet of millions, Tesla is keen on gathering data, making it a standout player in the autonomous vehicle arena. Yet, it seems the company is steadily shifting gears towards more internal testing.
This year, Tesla is significantly ramping up its recruitment drive, looking to hire a large number of “Seasonal Vehicle Operators” for a period of intense testing. The job description makes it clear that this role calls for “a highly motivated self-starter” capable of capturing top-quality data that will enhance vehicle performance. Applicants must be flexible, detail-oriented, and thrive in a dynamic, fast-paced environment.
Quoted directly from Tesla’s job posting, “The assignment is expected to last 3 months.” Candidates don’t need specific educational qualifications, but a spotless driving record, safe driving habits, and at least 4 years of licensed driving experience are mandatory.
Tesla is inviting applications for Seasonal Vehicle Operator positions in numerous locations across the US, including Elgin, Illinois; Brooklyn Park, Minnesota; Draper, Utah; Austin, Texas; Denver, Colorado; Bellevue, Washington; Marina Del Rey, California; Miami, Florida; Boynton Beach, Florida; Roswell, Georgia; Brooklyn, New York; Tempe, Arizona; Farmer’s Branch, Texas; Peabody, Massachusetts; and Fremont, California.
This unique opportunity offers a thrilling glimpse into the world of autonomous vehicles and a chance to contribute to Tesla’s continued success. For those with a penchant for driving and innovation, it might just be the perfect summer gig.
