Searching Google for “ge transportation” and “prime transportation” yields more than 1,200 results, including “ge transport,” “ge” and a handful of other titles.
“Prime transportation” comes up with more than 100 results, and “ge engineering” is the second-most popular search term.
The new Google job title comes from a video that Google released on Friday about its “ge operations team.”
In it, Google engineer Jonathan B. Schoenert talks about his role in the search giant’s “ge team.”
Schoenert said he had no direct role in hiring Google’s new transportation jobs.
He said the search company’s transportation teams have a broader range of expertise than its other engineering teams, but that some of the top transportation jobs Google has in the pipeline are for “satellite engineers” and engineers in the areas of “aerospace, robotics, and robotics.”
Google announced in May that it was looking for a new transportation engineer, saying the position should be a three-year position.
The job will involve driving vehicles, working with drivers, and providing logistics for Google’s fleet of satellites.
Schoener has been with Google for almost 10 years.
