Driverless Car Engineers

Work Environment

Driverless car engineers work on computers in offices, in research labs, and at autonomous vehicle test sites. They work independently as well as in teams with other engineers. They work business hours and typically 40 hours or more per week. They may work evenings, weekends, and during holidays to meet project deadlines. The work can be rewarding, particularly because automated vehicles is a new field that is continually innovating and evolving. It can be extremely satisfying to solve complex technical problems and see the improvements in action. On the other hand, driverless car engineers may also experience frustration and stress at times, particularly when facing short time frames to solve difficult problems and deliver work.
