Tesla China is hiring in nearly every location within the country, including Giga Shanghai, as the company’s electric vehicle demand continues to skyrocket.
Tesla’s Vice President of External Affairs, Grace Tao, shared six different hiring advertisements that confirmed the company is prepared to hire employees all over China.
The employment postings are broken down into each Chinese “district,” meaning North, South, East, and West, and there are also two advertisements for positions that are located within Giga Shanghai.
Giga Shanghai had two job postings. One describes technician and production line roles, including motor techs, die casting operators, production team leaders, and maintenance members. On the other hand, the second job posting lists jobs related to management and engineering design. Quality managers, software engineers, material planners, and team supervisors are described in this posting.
China’s North District
Tesla’s North District needs operation specialists, sales managers for showrooms, analysts, and production managers. Cities in need include Beijing, Tianjin, Zhengzhou, Qingdao, Shenyang, Changchun, and others.
China’s South District
The Southern District, which includes Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Foshan, Zhongshan, and Jiangmen, among others, is looking for store management, business development, and consultants.
China’s East District
Tesla’s Eastern District in China needs store managers, business and operations analysts, quality assurance managers, and consultants. Cities including Shanghai, Changzhou, Suzhou, Hangzhou, Wuhan, and Wenzhou.
China’s West District
The Western District is also expanding with retail and production technicians. Not only are sales supervisors and operations analysts needed on the West End, but sheet metal and spray paint technicians are also in need for Tesla’s operation.
Tesla’s demand in China has continued to soar and maintain steadily throughout 2020. The Model 3, which is currently the only car Tesla manufactures in China, is the most popular electric vehicle in the country by a considerable margin. In July, the Model 3 sold over 11,000 units, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.
Overall, automotive production and sales have dropped on a year-to-year basis by 11.8% and 12.7%, respectively, in China. The declines are because of decreases in demand due to the coronavirus. However, Tesla is still growing and expanding, and the company is seeking help with its operation in the largest automotive market in the world.
