Tesla Motors hiring engineer for autonomous driving push

Tesla Motors has an interesting job description on its website: “Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Controls Engineer.”

The full-time job, based in Palo Alto, seeks an engineer responsible for “developing vehicle-level decision-making and lateral and longitudinal control strategies for Tesla’s effort to pioneer fully automated driving.”

In May, CEO Elon Musk told Bloomberg that he was talking to Google about “autopilot” systems. Tesla also has the ability to constantly update Model S features. Tesla CTO J.B. Straubel is working on a “sensor suite” of safety features for the driver, that could include pedestrian detection, collision avoidance technology and additional cameras to monitor blind spots or obstructions while driving.

Not up your alley? There are 836 jobs listed on the Tesla website.
