Google is looking for new people for its autonomous vehicle division.
For the moment, it seems that Google does not plan to build self-driving cars on a significant scale. It appears the business is looking to make a limited number of autonomous vehicles, but production will be on a small scale. However, Google does not want any slips, and it’s looking for people with experience in manufacturing and precision workmanship.

According to The Guardian, Google has posted new job listings, searching for people with experience in working in Asia. That is not the only requirement, as the Alphabet holding in charge of this part of Google’s business is looking for employees with experience in manufacturing, automated factory assembly stations, and composite materials.

Most of the jobs posted by the tech giant on its Careers page are located in Mountain View, California. If you search for employment in the self-driving car department, the company’s website lists 27 pages of results. Since this is Google and not just a regular business, we are sure that the site is thoroughly updated, so there’s no error when it comes to the number of listings.

Google is seeking experienced managers and engineers to work on their self-driving cars. According to industry analysts, the company is not planning on building and selling mass-market autonomous vehicles soon. However, the analysts believe Google would rather establish a small volume production line for its self-driving cars, which they would use to further develop its systems.

Instead of selling or leasing its self-driving vehicles, the Mountain View giant would prefer to offer its self-driving cars as robotic taxis in cities where they have already begun autonomous vehicle testing. Residents and visitors of Austin and Mountain View will probably be the first to get a ride with the company’s robotic taxis.

This is Google’s presentation of how it is like to work for them:
