Building a self-driving car is an enormously difficult task that requires gifted engineers who are willing to spend years on projects that might never make their way to the public. And so the competition for talent is intense as made clear by what the top companies in the space shell out.
Five major players in the industry Argo AI, Aurora Innovation, Cruise, Waymo, and Zoox tend to pay six-figure salaries, according to data from the US Office of Foreign Labor Certification. The agency requires companies to disclose the amount of money they offer permanent and temporary employees from outside the US to ensure the firms aren't paying them less than the average wage earned by their peers. The salary data Business Insider analyzed is from 2020.
Aurora, Argo, and Zoox declined a request for comment, and Cruise did not respond to a request for comment.
