  • Tesla is seeking talented writing and editing students who are interested in the field of Content Editing and Technical Writing. The Service Engineering exists uniquely at the intersection of firmware/hardware design, service, diagnostics, manufacturing, quality and reliability. Service Engineering multiplies efforts of service in the areas of diagnostics, repairs and maintenance, while simultaneously reducing the need for each. As a Service Engineering Technical Writer Intern, you will partner with engineering teams to create and refine diagnostic procedures and documentation for use by non-engineers. You will improve editorial and visual standards for documentation and recommend new designs, layouts and formatting as needed.


  • Ability to edit and create documentation that is accurate, complete, clear, specific and as concise as possible
  • Ability to explain technical concepts to peers, people from different parts of the organization and non-technical people
  • Aptitude with transcribing written words from non-native speakers
  • Impeccable written and verbal communication
  • Experience with various communications media and advanced formatting and presentation skills
  • High level of interpersonal communication skills
  • Strong capacity for both logical and creative thinking
  • Must be organized, detail-oriented, able to multi-task and evaluate priorities
  • Self-directed and able to work independently with minimal supervision
  • Markup language experience (such as HTML, XML, DITA XML, or SGML) is a plus
