15d ago

  • Internship
    Off-cycle Internship
  • Engineering
  • Palo Alto


  • Currently pursuing a degree in Engineering, preferably Mechanical, Materials, Chemical, Electrical, Aerospace, or a related field
  • Experience with SolidWorks, Python, Catia, CAD/AutoCAD, Revit, 3DX or other 3D modelling software
  • Experience using MATLAB/Simulink for modeling physical systems
  • Knowledge of lithium-ion battery technology and electrochemistry
  • Expertise with analysis and/or qualification of lithium-ion cell materials including cathode, anode, electrolyte, etc.
  • First-principle physics understanding of electrical and mechanical systems, power delivery, energy storage and transformation, and thermo-fluids engineering


  • Your application for the Cell Engineer, Cell Engineering Internship will be considered across all opportunities for the teams listed below:
  • Cell Materials:
  • The Cell Materials Engineering team leads the design, qualification, and test method development of cathode, anode, and electrolyte. The team is responsible for the implementation of Tesla's cell materials technology roadmap from development to product-ready. Interns will be responsible for managing material program scope, identifying program risks, and driving program key decision making and facilitate cross-functional alignments.
  • Cell Development:
  • The Cell Development Lab serves to prototype next generation materials, electrodes, and cells for Tesla's future electric vehicle and energy storage products. Interns on this team will help in development of Automated Cell prototype Line equipment and processes to rapidly and reliably produce cells to qualify Tesla's future battery cell materials and electrodes. They will drive improvements to improve Cpk, reduce turnaround time, and improve OEE of the line.
  • Cell Modeling:
  • The cell modeling team generate cell lifetime models to predict aging characteristics based on large datasets generated from our test labs. Interns on this team will process test data and optimize model parameters to best predict cell lifetime at different scenarios for electric vehicles and energy storage products. They will translate degradation mechanisms into mathematical representations that can be accommodated by existing models.

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

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.
