What to Expect

The Role:

We are looking for a highly motivated engineer specializing in product security to work on Model S, X, 3 and future R&D projects. Other car companies have talked for years about a future of "connected cars." At Tesla, we make it happen.

Our mobile applications allow customers to interact with their cars via real-time, low-latency two-way communication. We also build tools for our internal sales, delivery, and service teams. Today we remotely identify potential vehicle issues before a customer does—and often fix problems remotely too. To this end information and product security is of the utmost importance.

As a Product Security Engineer for Tesla you will be expected to analyze system services, operating systems, networks and applications from a security perspective. You will be expected to be skilled at discovering security issues and recommending patches. You will participate in security audits, risk analysis, vulnerability testing and security reviews.
