Tesla Motors Inc Lures Engineers Out of Their Boxes (On Twitter)

Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA)

Tesla Motors Inc has been able to build a strong brand, 3 car models, a cult-like fan base, and a $29B market cap because it had smart folks working on its vision. Elon Musk has sought out the best talents he could hire – sometimes poaching them away from other tech firms. Tesla Motors has also lost its fair share of talents to rivals such as Apple and more recently, Faraday Futures. Now, Elon Musk wants to hire more engineers but he isn’t giving the job to headhunters.

If you want to work at Tesla, you have a better chance of getting the job by visiting Twitter than by creating a strong resume on LinkedIn. TechCrunch reports that that Tesla CEO, Elon Musk has taken to Twitter in the early hours of this morning to throw open the next round of hiring spree at the firm. Tesla is at a critical point in its growth story, the firm can’t build its cars as fast as it sells them, and it needs all the manpower it can get towards building its cars faster – and better.

Here’s how to get a Tesla job via Twitter

Elon Musk posted a series of tweets in the early hours of today to provide an insight into the next wave of hiring at Tesla Motors. In the first tweet, he says, “Ramping up the Autopilot software team at Tesla to achieve generalized full autonomy. If interested, contact [email protected]” In essence, Tesla is looking for experts that would work on its autopilot feature. The battle line between Tesla’s autopilot and Google’s self-driving cars has been drawn – may the best AI team win.

Another tweet revealed that Tesla Motors Inc is not particularly interested in poaching engineers away from its rivals. Musk says, “We are looking for hardcore software engineers. No prior experience with cars required. Please include code sample or link to your work.” In essence, Tesla Motors wants to hire people from outside the auto space who might approach the problems of having AI behind the wheels with a fresh perspective.

Musk says the jobs for which he is hiring are of “SUPER HIGH PRIORITY”. He says, “Should mention that I will be interviewing people personally and Autopilot reports directly to me. This is a super high priority.”

Tesla Motors is thinking outside the box

Tesla Motors Inc has proved wrong the critics who thought EVs are not realistic. Now, Tesla’s Model S has broken the records for Consumer Report tests, the Model X has raised the bar on SUVs, and the mass market Model 3 would take EVs to the mainstream market. Making cars fully autonomous is the next challenge in front of Tesla and the firm is making headways with its autopilot feature.

Tesla Motors seems to think that making gradual upgrades in driver-assistance systems of today can lead to the self-driving cars of the future. Musk thinks he can achieve full autonomous driving within the next three years by thinking outside the box. Now, Tesla wants to hire people who don’t have experience in making cars, and it is obvious that there is simply no box for its engineers.
