Our Autonomous Driving Vehicle Operators Serve as the “eyes and ears” on the road for the engineering teams, providing subjective feedback and objective data as they navigate various real-world driving environments to validate the Autonomous Driving features. The successful Vehicle Operator has a curious mindset and constantly questions "why" things happen. He/she will also have good attention to detail and be able to quickly and concisely describe their thoughts and move on to the next observation.
The Motional Singapore office is located in the Symbiosis Tower at 3 Fusionopolis Way in Singapore’s research & development hub, steps away from numerous retail, food and beverage outlets as well as the convenience of a one-north Mass Rapid Transit Station located within the building.
As a Vehicle Operator, you will be the most important member of our team whenever you are behind the wheel of a vehicle. Safety Drivers sit in the driver’s seat as our vehicles operate and ensure the safety of vehicle occupants, pedestrians, cyclists, and other motorists. In addition to operating our vehicles in both autonomous and manual modes, our Safety Drivers are key members of our test crews. This includes vehicle preparation, test execution, and documentation of results. If you have excellent driving awareness (professional driving schools and certifications encouraged) and love getting hands-on with vehicles, come help us build the world’s first self-driving taxi fleet.
