What Does Tesla Look for in an Employee?-Giga Berlin’s Requirement
Several hours after the tweet that launched a global hunt for new Giga Berlin employees, Elon Musk follows up with a new revelation of what is needed to highlight on the job application that would be sent to Tesla. The electric vehicle company seems to be in a rush to find an employee as the CEO himself would screen and interview potential candidates.
When sending your resume, please describe a few of the hardest problems you solved & exactly how you solved them — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 6, 2020
According to Elon Musk’s official Twitter account (@elonmusk), Tesla needs “problem solvers” for the engineer positions that are opening up for the Gigafactory. This announcement may seem vague for several people, but Musk wants someone with a practical and hands-on experience in handling engineering-related problems.
Elon Musk is searching for a “problem solver” that has a tremendous experience in resolving an issue within one’s previous experience to join the fleet and be sent out to Germany. The job search is open for everyone and would only need to submit a resume to “25Guns@Tesla.com.”
Tesla’s CEO asks applicants to highlight the most challenging experiences that one encountered and how they managed to solve it. From this alone, screening would be rigid as the evaluation’s criteria add another to the “engineer” qualification.
School Background & Engineering Specialty Won’t Matter-Problem-Solving Experience Needed
Tesla fan, Pranay Pathole (@PPathole), asks Elon Musk whether it would be open for all roles or would the job opportunity be specific on an engineering discipline. Here, Elon Musk answered that those would not matter, along with school backgrounds and even if they did go to school or not.
Just looking for problem-solvers who get things done with a high sense of urgency. Don’t care if or where they went to school. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 6, 2020
How about International Applicants?
The CEO did not clarify if there would be international openings for foreign citizens, but the online application is available for anyone with the experience. However, most Americans would benefit since the interview would be on-site. It is not yet clear whether the CEO would recruit internationally and interview via video conferencing.
