About Perceptive Automata

Perceptive Automata was founded by a team of Harvard and MIT neuroscientists, computer vision researchers, software engineers, and machine learning experts to solve what is often described as the hardest problem for automated driving: reading the state of mind of humans for the safe large-scale rollout of automated vehicles (L2-L5).

Job Description

We are hiring a contract driver to help us collect data in one of our test vehicles. We are looking for someone to start with 5-10 hours a week, and it can change depending on our data needs - likely growing as the weather gets nicer in Boston. We will generally have you drive the vehicle around urban Boston to collect different types of data. 

Hours will be flexible, but will be within Monday - Friday 9-6pm time frame. We generally want to collect images during daylight hours. Will be done at least over 2 days or more as you cannot drive for over 8 hours in one day.

We will also determine the type of data needed. For example, one day we maybe be focused on getting a lot of data with cyclists or pedestrians. Some days we may want more urban or rural environments.

Strongly Preferred Skills & Background

  • 5-7+ Years driving experience Commercially
  • Clean Driving record confirmed by background check
  • Experience driving commercially

A Plus (but not necessary):

  • Interest in development of Autonomous Vehicles and new car technology
  • Interest or experience in video data collection


  • Hourly Rate dependent on experience
