With Tesla growing at a record pace, it should be no surprise that the company is always looking for an edge.
According to The Information, Tesla has developed their own in-house software to track job applicants from application to hiring.
The proprietary software is for recruiting employees, and Tesla hopes to lower the costs associated with the hiring process.
Other larger companies use software from companies like SAP, Oracle and Avature, but Tesla decided that the cost of the software was not worth it.
Instead, Tesla software engineers developed their own, and as per former and current Tesla employees, it works well.
This is not the first time that Tesla has developed their own software, and it certainly will not be the last.
Tesla has been busy over the last few years on the human resource side.
Tesla increased its employee count by 28,633 last year; evidently, the new software helped speed up the process.
However, even as the company expands, Tesla is also looking to cut costs.
Earlier in June, Elon Musk announced that the company would cut 10 per cent of salaried workers while increasing hourly workers.
The first cuts came in late June when Tesla laid off around 200 Autopilot employees from one of their offices in San Mateo.
