Tesla job listings detail Elon Musk’s vision for 'thousands of Humanoid Robots within our factories'

Published: 09/23/2022

Tesla job postings reveal the electric vehicle maker is doubling down on humanoid robots.

Reuters recently reported the company is ramping up ambitious plans to develop the Tesla Bot, also known as Optimus, with internal meetings and hiring for about 20 positions including software and firmware engineers, deep learning scientists, actuator technicians, and internships.

"Tesla is on a path to build humanoid bi-pedal robots at scale to automate repetitive and boring tasks," one job posting for a mechatronics technician stated. "Most importantly, you will see your work repeatedly shipped to and utilized by thousands of Humanoid Robots within our factories."

Tesla posted most of the jobs under its Autopilot division, which is simultaneously working to deploy full self-driving capabilities for vehicles.

Elon Musk tweeted the Autopilot team has "end of month deadlines" for both the Tesla Bot and Autopark projects. Earlier in the summer, Musk teased that a prototype of the robot could be unveiled at Tesla's AI Day on Sept. 30.
