“The Vehicle Operator role is responsible for capturing high quality data that will contribute to the improvement of our vehicles performance,” the listing reads. “This role requires a high level of flexibility, attention to detail, and ability to work in a fast-paced dynamic environment. Day/night shift positions available.”
Obligations will range from analyzing and reporting on data, writing drive reports, checking for safety, and providing feedback to Tesla about findings.
Even though the position is temporary and at-will, full-time benefits are still offered including 401K contributions and health insurance.

The move is an interesting play for Tesla, which had mass layoffs throughout the course of 2023 so far, most recently with battery production workers at its Shanghai gigafactory.
Tesla is known to pay its employees quite handsomely, with a recent report showing that only five of 184 new hires were given a salary less than six figures.
CEO Elon Musk does not take home a salary or cash bonus.
