Tesla is hiring for Autopilot data collection operators in Europe, as seen on the automaker’s careers page (via @Tesla_Adri).

The full-time position is set to be based at Tesla’s Gigafactory Berlin-Brandenburg, located in Grünheide.

The employee will be in charge of managing data-recording devices and driving around test areas to collect data. The position also says it requires travel around 50 percent of the time.

On the job listing, Tesla writes, “We are looking for a highly motivated self-starter to help accelerate vehicle level data collection for the Autopilot team. The Prototype Vehicle Operator will help drive improvement of Tesla’s Autopilot system by operating and becoming an expert on our prototype data collection vehicles across Germany. This role requires a high level of flexibility, as frequent travel is necessary on this team.”

Tesla’s Giga Berlin upgraded production capacity was upgraded last month and this month, and the automaker is still set to hire a significant amount of personnel.

Earlier this month, Tesla reached around 5,000 employees at Giga Berlin and the automaker is looking to add a second shift to production in the coming months. By October, Giga Berlin is expected to produce 3,000 Tesla Model Y units per week.

Tesla was also approved to sell test units for the Model Y, built prior to the facility becoming fully operational.
