Tesla Motors ramps up hiring

PALO ALTO, Calif. — Tesla CEO Elon Musk needs more workers to reach his dream of advancing the electric car concept.

Tesla Motors is currently staffing for a stationary-storage unit. The unit will make battery packs that can provide energy for homes, businesses and utilities.

There are more than 70 jobs available here for Tesla, from storage workers to chief counsel.

In February, Tesla reached a milestone of 2,000 Superchargers worldwide, located at almost 400 Supercharger Stations in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Tesla Superchargers enable free long distance electric driving across the United States, and up and down the West and East Coasts. They connect the United Kingdom to continental Europe and stretch from the south of France to northern Norway, far up into the Arctic Circle. In China, Superchargers link major cities along the coast, and we recently opened Supercharger stations in Japan and Australia.

Model S drivers enjoy the convenience of plugging in at home or at the office so they’ve always got plenty of charge for their daily driving needs.

Tesla Motors was founded in 2003 by a group of engineers in Silicon Valley who wanted to prove that electric cars could be better than gasoline-powered cars. With instant torque, incredible power, and zero emissions, Tesla’s products would be cars without compromise. Each new generation would be increasingly affordable, helping the company work towards its mission: to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable transport.
