Tesla is back to its hiring ways after the recent layoffs earlier in 2022. The company has posted 50 percent more job listings in October than compared to June.
The American EV maker aimed to cut 10 percent of its staff and paused hiring globally earlier this year in June after CEO Elon Musk said he had a bad feeling about the economy.
However, things have rapidly changed at Tesla as hiring has resumed at a fast clip.
Reuters reported over 6,900 job openings on Tesla’s career website, excluding job ads for Tesla China. This is 50 percent more than the vacancies available when the company froze hiring.
In comparison, Tesla had more than 7,400 openings in May.
The categories with the highest vacancies include Engineering & Information Technology, Vehicle Service, and Manufacturing. According to a review of job vacancy locations, the majority of the jobs are posted in California, Texas, and Nevada, all three states where Tesla has manufacturing facilities and a large office presence.
The increased hiring efforts is not limited to the United States. A review of the Canadian Tesla Careers website by Drive Tesla shows 189 job postings, a significantly higher number than what has been published since June.
Tesla is expanding manufacturing rapidly globally and will need more hands to meet its goals. This year, it opened two new factories in Austin, Texas, and Berlin, Germany.
