Google's Project X self-driving car program now hiring

Google is committing additional engineering and management resources to advance its driverless car technology.

Google has gone on a hiring spree to add considerable engineering talent to Project X, its self-driving car program. Reuters reports the search engine and software giant (which now operates under the name Alphabet) has started hunting for engineers and managers with automotive manufacturing expertise, indicating it is close to moving beyond building driverless robot pods and is readying “electronic modules for the self-driving car” to ink a deal with a carmaker.
