Tesla Bot jobs
According to Teslarati, two of the career openings are for mechanical engineering jobs, while the other pair are for robotics architects. As for mechanical engineers, Tesla is looking for two talents with different orientations.
The first should work on the gear systems and actuator designs. While the other engineer will focus on both the integration and the mechanical design of the Tesla Bot actuator parts.
The same goes for the robotic architect. The two talents should focus on two different jobs. One for robot modeling, and the other for humanoid mechatronics.
These key positions are responsible for building the humanoid robot that could replace humans in tasks considered both exhaustive and tedious.
It should be noted that Tesla Bot’s first four vacancies are located in Palo Alto, California, where the Titan EV headquarters are located.
