Tesla offers these jobs in more than a dozen U.S. cities, including Austin, Texas, Denver, Colorado, Brooklyn, and more. In addition to the compensation, this position offers additional benefits. This isn’t the first time an electric automaker has hired test drivers. The company has also previously hired test drivers to test its vehicles. The company relies heavily on data it receives from Tesla owners to help test software, including a beta version of its Full Self-Driving (FSD) software.

Tesla’s current vacancies do not require drivers to have a degree, but mention that applicants must have a good driving record, safe driving habits, and at least 4 years of driver’s license experience.

Interestingly, Tesla’s latest job posting for an electric vehicle test driver comes as the company gears up for production of its highly anticipated Cybertruck, which is expected to go on sale this September. Additionally, Tesla is developing FSD, which, as hinted by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, could also provide Level 4 autonomous driving later this year.

When it comes to the job responsibilities of EV test drivers, they will be required to drive a Tesla vehicle equipped with an array of sensors. Testing of electric vehicles involves drivers repeatedly simulating scenarios that could confuse Tesla’s Full Self-Driving software, such as left turns or unusual intersections. This data is then reviewed and tagged by a data labeling machine at the Tesla factory.
