What to Expect

Tesla is seeking a manufacturing engineer to support selection, specification, and design of equipment to produce our Power Electronics and Energy Products. This team provides an opportunity to work with a broad range of products—including Tesla's Powerwalls, Megapacks, vehicle charging systems, drive inverters, and supporting hardware. The engineer in this role will work closely with the product design, factory facilities, sustaining, quality, and production teams to develop, bring-up, and ramp the equipment needed for high- volume product assembly.

Project scope begins in early product design stages, where the manufacturing engineer will provide DFM feedback, develop equipment concepts, and help define assembly strategy and interface points between the equipment and the product. The manufacturing engineer will design fixtures and tooling to support prototype and pilot builds of new or next-generation products, and directly support these builds as the owner of the manufacturing equipment while working with Tesla's broader automation development teams or third-party integrators to develop the high-volume production equipment. The manufacturing engineer will then be responsible for leading installation, commissioning, ramping, and handing off equipment to the production team.

What You'll Do

  • Design manufacturing equipment and fixtures for project phases from early- stage prototype builds to high-volume production
  • Develop concepts for high-volume production equipment using a first principles approach to optimize equipment safety, cost, capacity, volumetric efficiency, and delivery time
  • Advise equipment integrators in design and manufacture of equipment for medium to high-volume production
  • Lead concept development, selection, and design of automated equipment for medium to high-volume production
  • Lead commissioning, deployment, and ramp of production equipment
  • Define and establish both equipment utility and data interfaces to the physical and ‘virtual' factory
  • Provide DFM (design for manufacturability) input to design team for process and yield improvements
  • Author and compile equipment documentation for hand-off to production sustaining team (drawing packages, calibration procedures, validation data, spare parts lists, etc.)
  • What You'll Bring

  • 2+ years of manufacturing or equipment sustaining engineering experience in medium to high-volume manufacturing environments
  • Experience bringing-up and ramping new production equipment, preferably for new products or novel processes
  • Proficiency designing mechanical equipment, fixturing, and tooling in CAD (SolidWorks or CATIA)
  • Proficiency in analysis of mechanical tolerances/uncertainty and GD&T
  • Experience specifying mechanical and electromechanical hardware
  • Understanding of automation controls systems and interfaces between software, equipment hardware, and factory databases
  • BS/MS in mechanical engineering, or equivalent experience
  • From this employer
