Staff Software Developer



The Platform Engineering team at Tesla builds and runs the tools and technologies that make up Tesla’s internal cloud platform. Our mission is to enable developers to rapidly take ideas from napkin to web as quickly and securely as possible while providing tools that enable them to gain insight and stay compliant. Our success is measured by how we allow our developers to get their applications running faster and more efficiently by allowing them to focus on code and not infrastructure. And to allow our SRE’s and Ops engineers to work on core tasks, instead of having to serve as full time customer to developers.
