It didn’t come as a surprise when we found a job listing for a Barista on Tesla’s careers page.
CEO Elon Musk has long been a fan of caffeinated beverages, having once revealed in an interview that he consumed eight cans of Diet Coke each day, as well as several large cups of coffee at one point in his career. “I got so freaking jacked that I seriously started to feel like I was losing my peripheral vision,” said Musk in a 2007 interview with Inc.
With a legion of mission-statement devout workers that are blind to the idea of a 40-hour work week, having a top notch Coffee Bar in the workplace almost seems like a must – and it is.
Tesla posted a job opening for a Barista that will be based in Los Angeles – perhaps at its massive 131,000 square feet facility near Silicon Beach – and calls for an ‘innovative beverage artist’ that looks to help change the world, one cup of coffee at a time.
Tesla has an opportunity in Los Angeles for a skilled, personable Barista to create top-notch coffee creations for our thirsty personnel.
