Hey Oppo….some of you just know me from the front page, but I was once a regular writer here and this community is still one of the best car corners of the internet. I’m now coming to you with an opportunity to make a few bucks with your car knowledge.


Automatch Consulting (that’s me) is teaming up with AutoMotion to make car buying easier. Currently, the AutoMotion app is utilized by car buyers who are doing research on various models and looking for specific inventory within their area. AutoMotion uses both AI and human interactions to locate cars for the buyer.

This is where you come in, you would engage in a text-based conversation with a buyer looking for a specific car. They may say they want a Honda Pilot in Chicago. You do the research and find them some listings. They may come back and say they prefer a red one, you would refine your search accordingly based on the customer’s feedback. There is a little more to the process but that is the general idea.


This is a part-time contractor based gig and with a compensation of $20/hr. For those of you that spend all day looking at cars and helping friends and family source vehicles, this could be a great way to make some side money.

We don’t need a lot of contractors right now, so spots are limited. However, as the business grows and more customers use the system there will likely be more openings in the future.


Here is the official posting -
