It appears that Tesla is expanding its Investor Relations team. As per recent job postings from the company, Tesla is actively looking to hire an Investor Relations Lead. The job listing was highlighted by IR Head Martin Viecha on Twitter. 

Tesla’s ideal candidate for its Investor Relations Lead must be a great communicator with a background in the automotive, finance, or commodities industry. The Investor Relations Lead will also be reporting directly to the VP of Investor Relations. 

Tesla provided an idea of the responsibilities of an IR Lead. Following are the tasks associated with the job. 

  • Daily communication with investors and analysts
  • Updating presentations for investors and BoD
  • Conducting Tesla factory tours in the US, Europe and China
  • Meeting investors through non-deal roadshows
  • Presenting at investor conferences
  • Data analytics
  • Organization of events
  • Keeping internal databases up to date

The electric vehicle maker also listed some of its expectations for applicants to its Investor Relations Lead post. 

  • Exceptional communication skills and presentation skills
  • Minimum 10 years of work experience
  • Experience covering Automotive or Tech or commodities/mining is required
  • Equity Investment (Sell side or Buy side)
  • Based in the Bay Area
  • Some travel to other Tesla locations
  • Understanding of Financial Accounting, battery technology, Autopilot technology, Commodities, Manufacturing and competitive landscape

While Tesla is yet to revive its public relations department, the company’s investor relations team does appear to be getting more proactive. This was highlighted by IR Head Martin Viecha’s active participation in several key events as of late. Last month, Viecha met with teams from several finance firms for a tour of Gigafactory Berlin. Analysts who later wrote about the tour proved very optimistic about Tesla’s future. 

Viecha also spoke at a Goldman Sachs invite-only conference, where he discussed Tesla’s plans for a wide release of “supervised” FSD by the end of the year. He also hinted at Tesla’s affordable vehicle, or at least one that seems quite different from the futuristic Robotaxi that Elon Musk had mentioned previously.
