In a regular series of interviews, we speak to autonomous vehicle industry recruiters  to find out what they're looking for in candidates, how their recruitment process typically works and what advice they’d give to those pursuing a career in autonomous and connected vehicles. In our latest Q&A, we catch up with Gilles Simeon, HR Business Partner / Talent Acquisition Manager at mobility services platform Bestmi le. 1. Can you tell us a bit about Bestmile and the roles you typically recruit for? We mainly recruit technology profiles, ideally people with a computer science, math, or data science background (MS or PhD), and/or that are well versed in Scala programming and algorithm development. In addition to skills and experience we put a lot of emphasis on hiring people with the right mindset and drive. Our engineers have to be good communicators, team oriented, supportive and able to connect their technical roles with our business goals. 2. What types of candidate should apply to Bestmile? Individuals with a positive outlook, skilled but humble, and with a good sense of humor!  Someone who is more likely to use the "we" than "I". 3. How does the recruiting process usually work at Bestmile? We hold between four and five interviews, all registered in our ATS, and give a technology assignment or test, which can take days to be completed! 4. What experience or expertise do you value most in applicants? We want people that are at the top of their disciplines, so that we can always get better, move faster, and grow stronger. We value a solutions mindset, being team-oriented and easy to work with, and with strong EQs and IQs. // 5. How much competition is there for the best candidates? In order to work in Switzerland you must be Swiss or an EU Passport holder. For the others the process to get a work permit is much more complicated. So, it makes our pool of candidates smaller. 6. What mistakes do candidates typically make during the application/interview process? Some of them have not spent enough time to get a clear understanding of what Bestmile is doing. Or they don’t ask more questions about "why" we are doing what we are doing. We like curious people. 7. What skills do you think will be most important for candidates as the autonomous and connected vehicles sector develops? The market is developing and there are not a lot of candidates with experience in this specific market segment. Candidates have to be very technically skilled but amongst skilled engineers, we would pick the ones with the right attitude and compatibility with the team. 8. How many roles do you expect to recruit for over the next twelve months? Around 10 positions, mainly technical positions. 9. What one piece of advice would you give to someone seeking to build a career in autonomous and connected vehicles? It is a good time to apply and you will be given the opportunity to join an exciting, rapidly growing industry due to the scarcity of profiles coming from this sector. We are at the beginning of what is expected to be massive growth in the mobility business, which will provide you with many opportunities in the future. 10. Finally, what would attract someone to develop their career at Bestmile? Our company is not going to have an impact only on our industry, but also on larger social, economic, and environmental issues. For people that want their work to make a difference, this industry in general and Bestmile in particular can help you to achieve your goals.   Check out the latest autonomous vehicle industry jobs here.
The UK‌ job market is forecast to change drastically in the coming years as the uptake of artificial intelligence creates as many as 133 million new jobs around the world. That’s according to a forthcoming report that predicts that in the UK‌ alone, up to a third of jobs will be automated or likely to change as a result of the emergence of artificial intelligence (AI). The research from recruiter Robert Walters and market analysis firm Vacancy Soft – ‘Harnessing the Power of AI: The Demand for Future Skills’ – found that, as a result, as many as 10.5 million UK‌ workers could be affected. Ollie Sexton, Principal at Robert Walters, said that as businesses come to rely more on AI, there is increasing pressure on the processes of data capture and integration. “As a result, we have seen an unprecedented number of roles being created with data skill-set at their core.” Send me Driverless Weekly Email “Now is the perfect time to start honing UK talent for the next generation of AI-influenced jobs,” continued Sexton. “If you look at the statistics in this report we can see that demand is already rife, what we are at risk of is a shortage of talent and skills.” According to the research, data roles have increased by 80% since 2015, with key areas of growth including data scientists and engineers. Year-on-year, job vacancies for data scientists have increased by 110%, while jobs for data engineers have grown by 86%. Tom Chambers, Manager - Advanced Analytics and Engineering at Robert Walters said that while the uptake of AI‌ is bringing about rapid change, it is also creating opportunities, with the retail, professional services and technology industries striving to develop digitally engaging products and services. “What we are seeing is that of those businesses that are prepared to invest heavily in AI and data analytics they are already outperforming their competitors – and so demand for talent in this area shows no signs of wavering.” Check out the latest autonomous vehicle industry jobs here.
