It seems like every time we turn around, Tesla is looking for new employees to contribute to the futuristic empire the EV giant is building. Now, according to some new job listing, Tesla is building a new video game, software, and user interface team out of Austin. Some of the listings include:
-Video Games Engineer, Infotainment Software
-Software Engineer, Mobile
-Software Engineer, Vehicle User Interface (C++)
-Rendering Engineer, Software Infotainment
According to the job description of the video games engineer job on Tesla’s career website “Tesla strives to make its cars the most fun possible; bringing video game experiences to the car helps increase that fun. In this incredibly rare opportunity to help build a video games platform, we are looking for a highly motivated software engineer to help enable the best video game content to be available in-car. Come put that industry experience to great use and help us build this platform.”
As far as the “Rendering Engineer in Software Infotainment” role Tesla wrote “We are looking for a motivated real-time rendering engineer to help us advance the software infotainment system in our cars. We are aiming to build the world’s best in-car experience by taking full advantage of our 17-inch display, graphics hardware, and recent advances in features. The ideal candidate is self-driven and looks forward to solving challenging problems. In-car graphics relies heavily on rendering technologies like OpenGL. The ideal candidate is an expert with OpenGL/DirectX and can use it to create real-time rendering techniques such as deferred rendering, HDR, ambient-occlusion, particle systems for snow, rain, etc. We are looking for engineers that can write rendering engines like Unreal, not simply those engineers that use them as a black box.”
The Next Avenue recently reported a hiring spree by Tesla for the pilot production line of it Model Y at Gigafactory Shanghai. Now it appears the company is ramping up it’s work force while construction is underway at it’s Texas location, not only related to the factory, but to software as well.
