Hiring Growth

Companies in the auto-tech space are growing fast.

A former Uber exec suggests that over half of Uber’s 4,000 current employees may have been hired in the last six months.

Tesla has over 1,000 open jobs, and has grown so much that it has run out of parking spaces at its headquarters.

Nonetheless, Matthew DeBord at Business Insider believes that Tesla hasn’t hired enough staff in the traditional auto-manufacturing roles.

Musk’s company will probably be able to build and deliver roughly 50,000 vehicles this year. Next year, the total could get close to 75,000–100,000. But these are pretty small totals compared with the major players. Ford and GM build that many cars in a month and could easily assemble far more, if the market demanded it.

On yet another hand, however, Tesla’s new Nevada gigafactory is huge and holds space for all those manufacturing employees.
