So let's just say you intend to spend eight hours per day, the result would be $160 and in a business week, usually five days, you're getting a whopping $800 just for staying and cruising around in a self-driving car.

Google is paying $20 an hour for drivers, or "self-driving vehicle operators," to cruise around Phoenix, Arizona and its suburbs testing out its self-driving cars.

"(Test drivers) give our engineers feedback about how our cars are driving and interacting with others on the road, and can take control of the vehicle if needed," said Brian Torcellini, head of operations for Google's Self-Driving Car test program.

It's not just taking a nap while the "car drives you," according to the job description. You'll need to maintain a "constant focus," while providing ongoing feedback to Google's engineering team. The company's also looking for someone with a clean driving record who can type at least 40 words per minute. 

To get the job, you would need to apply. You can apply for the job right here.
