Blog: Joining Tesla Motor's Web Team

November 2012

I'm excited to share that I've accepted an offer to join Tesla Motor's Web team! It's quite an honor and I'm excited to get to work immediately with the intent of moving toward a zero-emissions future. I'll be working out of my home and from my community space digs at 720 located in Reno; it's an incredible remote-work position to begin this adventure under, and it offers incredible opportunities for growth and geographical change into the future.

Tesla believes the faster the world stops relying on fossil fuels and moves towards a zero-emission future, the better.

The Web team is small and tight-knit, based out of Palo Alto, CA, and responsible for building out and shepherding the company's digital experience and Web presence, teslamotors.com, for a worldwide audience. By creating user-friendly, digital features and cross-platform solutions, both online and at retail stores, the Web team is integral in Tesla's effort in accelerating the world’s transition to sustainable energy.

To-date, the hiring process with Tesla has been the most challenging interview in my life, spanning multiple days and including thought-provoking, rigorous questions, both technical and interpersonal — so I am honored for this great opportunity to offer my skills, experiences and perspective, and, equally important, learn and grow from my new, talented and dedicated teammates.

Here's to work that has the potential to shift industries and culture toward sustainability,
