Google is looking for "vehicle safety specialists" for $20 per hour in Arizona to sit behind the wheel of its self-driving cars and take over at a moment's notice.

In a job posting on HireArt, Google said the full-time position will be based out of Phoenix. The role calls for an associate who can "operate comfortably in a fast-paced environment, sometimes managing up to four communication channels simultaneously via various high- and low-tech mediums."

Google has been expanding its self-driving car fleet in Chandler, reports The Verge.
