Tesla continues to hire new employees by the boat load


Tesla is growing so quickly that it doesn’t even have enough parking space for its employees, and it’s not slowing down anytime soon. A few weeks ago, CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to ask any hardcore software engineers that are looking for a job to contact Tesla, because the company needs about 100 more, but that was just the beginning. Apparently the company is looking to hire several thousand more employees over the next few years as the competition continues to heat up, especially from the liked of Faraday Future. 

A few weeks ago, Elon Musk put out a call on Twitter for “hard-core software engineers” to work on Tesla Motors Inc.’s autonomous car program. The company’s inbox was flooded. While Musk was only looking for 100 prospects, he may want to keep the other applicants within ear shot. The electric-car company, which recently released its first sport-utility vehicle and will soon open a battery factory in Nevada, is looking to add thousands of employees in coming years just as an auto industry showdown for tech talent is brewing. Tesla isn’t the only player in town. The 12-year-old company is tussling with a growing mass of auto makers crowding into California looking for people capable of helping develop software and other components needed to power electric or autonomous vehicles. Several startups, including Chinese-backed Faraday Future Inc., Karma Automotive Inc. and Atieva Inc., have been luring people away from Tesla for their own electric-car ventures.
