Tesla Launches Hiring Spree in China as It Prepares for Shanghai Production of Model Y

Tesla is launching a comprehensive recruitment drive in China, the world’s largest automobile market, where the U.S. firm is generating increasing revenue.

The California-based automaker is looking to hire designers and information technology engineers in China, according to posts published on the company’s human resources public WeChat account.

Separately, in a recent video, Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk extended an invitation to those interested in working for Tesla China, revealing that his company builds teams that “will be doing original design and engineering in China.”

In January, Tesla unveiled plans to open a China-based design and research center to build electric cars characterized by Chinese elements and called for talented designers to apply for jobs at the new facility to help realize the goal of integrating the best of Chinese design into Tesla’s future-facing vehicles.

Tesla also put out a job ad for a large number of vacancies in final assembly, bodywork, stamping and painting workshops in Shanghai as well as logistics and quality control departments.

The hiring spree comes as Tesla is preparing to begin producing the Model Y sport utility vehicle at its Shanghai factory, where the domestically made Model 3 sedans are built.

Tesla cars’ popularity in China has been exploding, which is reflected in the company’s latest quarterly sales figures. In the second quarter of 2020, Tesla grew its China revenue to $1.4 billion from $690 million a year earlier, making the country its second-largest market after the U.S., where it raked in $3.1 billion in sales, according to a filing to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

In May, Tesla sold 11,095 Shanghai-assembled Model 3 sedans in China, taking the crown as the country’s largest vendor of new-energy vehicles that month, according to the China Passenger Car Association.
