Software Integration Engineer, Cell Software

Tesla

Responsibilities

What to
Expect (Background):

 

Tesla is
re-thinking how batteries are made from the ground up. We’re designing new
factories, new equipment, new processes and new software to rapidly scale
battery manufacturing, globally. The primary bottleneck to Tesla’s future
expansion (and the transition to sustainable transport and energy storage) is
our ability to produce and procure batteries – that’s why we’re innovating
in-house, with our collection of world-class engineers, to redefine the
industry. Software, data and automation all play a huge part in this strategy.

We’ve
built software from scratch with a nimble and high performing team to meet the
specific needs of Tesla’s rapid battery manufacturing scale up. This software
tracks every component of the cell manufacturing process and acts as the brain
of the entire cell factory.

The Cell
Software team is responsible for building solutions that allow the company to
redefine manufacturing and production. We focus on implementing effective
software advances, distributed fault-tolerant computing, and modern
user-experience to manufacturing systems. Our stack is built on top of
Kubernetes, Kafka, React, Go, PostgreSQL and other related platforms. We are not
stuck in legacy systems.

We’re
looking for an integration engineer to help us successfully commission this
software into the manufacturing line and business processes of the cell
organization. This role will be chief problem solver working to unblock users
and ensure the software is being most effective in the cell program. This will
be achieved by obtaining a deep understanding of how our software platform
works and how to get it to do what the end user needs.

The role
will involve technical problem-solving using data (we produce a lot of it), configuration
of software solutions based on understanding of our platforms, as well as
direct user support to answer questions. It is a mix of project management,
solutions engineering, and support.  

By taking
on this role you will be central to getting both software and our manufacturing
process to a mature and steady state. You will also help us shape the software product
to ensure it is solving the right problems. You’ll do all of this while
providing open lines of communication to our end users, supporting them as they
use the software.

Requirements

What You’ll Bring (Requirements):
