  • Internship
    Off-cycle Internship
  • Engineering
  • Palo Alto


  • Currently pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering or a related field
  • Experience 3D CAD software such as NX, Fusion360, SolidWorks or CATIA
  • Experience with project management and revision control tools (Jira, Github)
  • Experience working with industrial machine vision cameras


  • Assembly Engineering:
  • Intern will contribute to the process improvement of new assembly lines for our advanced cell manufacturing equipment for the cutting-edge Tesla 4680 Battery Cells. They will work with cross-functional teams throughout the entire lifecycle of the product and processes. They will work closely with Engineering (Design and Manufacturing), Quality and production teams to bring the new product from initial design, through prototype development and finally into full production.
  • Assembly Machine Vision Development:
  • Intern will work on developing and deploying vision systems used on the Tesla Cell Manufacturing production lines. This intern will also support with analyzing performance of vision systems, implement new features, troubleshoot issues of existing vision systems.
  • Cell Manufacturing:
  • Intern will innovate, engineer, manufacture and install new processes and high-volume automation equipment. They will work closely with Tesla’s internal Product Design, Operations, Facilities, Production and Quality Engineering teams and coordinate cross-functional design activities with equipment suppliers to develop scalable innovations in the areas of automated laser welding, vision inspection, conveyance systems and dispense equipment. This individual will also assume ownership of the design and technical transfer of equipment and designs to Tesla Operations, qualifying them for use with the highest standards of safety, quality, and output.
  • Cell Engineering:
  • Interns work directly with full time engineers to problem solve, design, prototype, test and launch new parts and processes to improve our cells. Our projects include automation system installations, cell defect root cause analysis, cycle time analysis and optimization, Design of Experiments, and project management.

Tesla’s mission is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy.

Founded Year

Mission & Purpose

Tesla’s mission is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy through increasingly affordable electric vehicles in addition to renewable energy generation and storage. California-based Tesla is committed to having the best-in-class in safety, performance, and reliability in all Tesla cars. There are currently over 275,000 Model S, Model X and Model 3 vehicles on the road worldwide. To achieve a sustainable energy future, Tesla also created infinitely scalable energy products: Powerwall, Powerpack and Solar Roof. As the world’s only vertically integrated energy company, Tesla continues to innovate, scale and reduce the costs of commercial and grid-scale systems, with the goal of ultimately getting us to 100% renewable energy grids.
