Tesla Announces New Hiring Efforts For Giga Texas

Most people should not be surprised that Tesla is hiring for employment at its upcoming Gigafactory in Austin, Texas. However, due to the global chip scarcity and other supply chain restrictions, as well as the unknowns surrounding Tesla’s production ramp, it may appear to some that Tesla is making public statements about recruiting too quickly.

CEO Elon Musk has previously stated that employees may be hard to come by, and he has been urging people to relocate to the Austin, Texas, area since the middle of last year. In fact, he pushed for further housing development in the areas surrounding the enormous automobile and EV battery factory.

Omead Afshar, Tesla’s Project Director for the Office of the CEO, took to Twitter yesterday to announce that the company is hiring at Giga Texas.

Teslarati discovered an interesting piece of information on Tesla’s job page for the future Texas factory. It says:

“It doesn’t matter where you come from, where you went to school or what industry you’re in—we are currently hiring individuals of all levels. If you’ve done exceptional work, join us in solving the next generation of engineering, manufacturing and operational challenges as we accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy.”

Musk has also said over the years that a college education isn’t always what he looks for in a suitable candidate. Rather, he wants to know about their previous work and how they’ve shown themselves successful, particularly when it comes to overcoming complex problems using innovative approaches.

Musk said in early 2021 that Tesla would require 10,000 staff for Giga Texas until 2022. He also praised the location as an excellent spot to consider relocating.

Musk recently said that the Texas factory would create “at least” 20,000 direct jobs and 100,000 indirect jobs in December 2021.

If you look at Tesla’s Giga Texas hiring page, you’ll notice that there are a range of positions available, including over 40 in construction and facilities. In the meanwhile, there are roughly 200 manufacturing positions available. If you’d prefer to work in factory operations or business support, there are currently seven positions.
