For those looking to make some easy money, Google might be the solution to your problems, particularly for those who live in the state of Arizona.

Google is seeking prospective clients for whom they will pay $20 an hour to sit in their new line of driverless cars as they travel between designated points. While getting such a decent amount to sit in a car may seem leisurely enough, apparently those who sign on must be paying attention to the wheel to take control of it should something go amiss during testing.

“Test drivers play an important role in developing our self-driving technology,” Brian Torcellini, head of operations for Google’s Self-Driving Car testing program, tells The Arizona Republic. “They give our engineers feedback about how our cars are driving and interacting with others on the road, and can take control of the vehicle if needed.”

Torcellini also states that Google is looking to sign interested drivers for anywhere between 12-24 months. These drivers will be assigned to work in pairs, with one person in the driver’s seat ready to control the wheel of the car, while their fellow passenger takes notes on a laptop regarding the car’s features and its performance on the road.

Google is also not restricting applications to certain fields of study either, as the company aims to hire people from a wide range of backgrounds, obviously permitting that they have good driving records and have familiarity navigating the roads in the Phoenix area.

So for the current Arizona dwellers that are looking for some extra pocket cash on the side and are legally allowed to drive a car, it looks like this job could be for you.
