Tesla’s mission is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy.
Tesla’s overarching purpose is to help accelerate the world’s transition from a fossil fuel economy towards a sustainable energy future. We believe the faster the world stops relying on fossil fuels and moves towards a zero-emission future, the better. We’re making this a reality through our electric vehicles and sustainable energy products, and by hiring exceptional people who believe in our mission.
We are solving problems that have never been addressed before, so regardless of experience or career level, we expect our employees to be innovative, driven, collaborative, and trustworthy.
We believe in having a diverse and inclusive workforce composed of talented, driven, and authentic individuals. We are committed to advancing our diversity and inclusion, not just because it's the right thing to do, but because our differences enable us to build the most innovative products as we change the way the world produces, stores, and consumes energy.
Working at Tesla means impacting our entire world to change the way we’ve produced, stored and consumed energy for generations. Here are some of the ways our team members are leaving their mark on the world:
Our team of agile computer, electrical, manufacturing and mechanical engineers solve the toughest challenges and work to ensure that our customers receive the world’s best transportation and energy products. Our inventors, developers and innovators come to work each day with a vision, and work cross-functionally from conception to final delivery.
Our manufacturing associates and maintenance technicians touch every vehicle, battery and solar cell we produce to ensure quality and readiness for our customers. Each day, our technicians work collaboratively to build Tesla’s award-winning products, maintain manufacturing equipment, improve safety, strengthen procedures and manage production goals.
SALES & SERVICE
Our dedicated sales and service employees are on the front lines when it comes to customer support. They know the ins and outs of our vehicle and energy products, and provide an educational, innovative, and personal purchasing and ownership guidance. Whether they’re fielding questions about vehicle range, discussing energy savings or diagnosing, repairing and servicing vehicles, they strive to offer the best customer experience. Nothing speaks to this more than the fact that Tesla has the highest customer satisfaction levels and the highest percentage of customers who say that their next car will be a Tesla in the entire global auto industry.
GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE
Our corporate teams are passionate about the work we’re doing to achieve a sustainable energy future, so they work hard to support thousands of engineers, technicians and service employees throughout the global organization. Our teams of facilities, finance, human resources, legal and marketing professionals are both analytical and innovative, and strive for continuous improvement as they manage programs and deliver results on a global scale.
