The Role

Tesla Design conceives vehicle and other products that directly support the company's mission to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy. We care greatly about building products that stand the test of time, even as design and technology keep evolving. The composites and fabrication team supports the creative process by providing form to reality prototypes to preview innovative design ideas.

You will work with the composites team to fabricate panels and parts for future vehicles. This is not a design position and requires hands-on construction and building of prototypes. Primary tasks will involve introduction and immersion into the methods and process of building prototype vehicles, part creation from machined tooling, as well as detail trimming and fitment of parts.


Basic shop skills including table-saw and band saw.

Experience with part creation with a focus on infusion/VARTM methods of both carbon fiber and fiberglass.

Attention to detail with trimming and fitment after part creation.


You must be self-managed and committed to working in a fast-paced environment.

Hands-on experience is a must.

Professional and positive communication skills.

Previous internship and/or project experience is a plus.
