In 2012, I joined the Tesla Web team. In the years since, our little small team that could has gone on to create some incredible digital features, including a customized Web experience geared toward a worldwide audience — www.teslamotors.com — that supports the company's mission:
accelerating the transition to sustainable energy for all.
Currently, we need to scale our team for what lies ahead, and I have the privilege of being part of that initiative. The team is based out of Palo Alto, but it has a global reach.
Building a healthy, sustainable and inclusive team requires people who share the team's values and can push it to the next level technically; however, the technical part is only one part of the overarching equation.
Manny's technical capacity for software development is unquestioned, but what really sets him apart is his empathy and his personal approach to work where he specializes in harvesting a team energy unrivaled in the IT world as far as I'm concerned.

In addition to finding talented and creative engineers who can wrangle code and design the unthinkable, I look for candidates who exemplify other skills, notably the softer-skills; such as compassion, inclusion and a desire to continuously learn. Consciousness about others' well-being, ideas, experiences and life journeys is something I also value in people and teams.
Our team works wth many others across the company who hail from various parts of the world. As a result, Tesla's mission simply cannot be sustained without an inclusive and safe work environment.
Manny is an amazing leader and a dedicated contributor. He has a calm, level headed and positive personality and a driven nature.

I'm striving to help build a world-class, inclusive and innovative team - a team and culture I am proud to be part of every day that continuously improves.
If you'd like to join our team and are looking for a new challenge, feel free to reach out to learn more about the team and roles.
I've had the pleasure to work with Manny on various projects at Tesla, starting when we first met in Amsterdam when he was here to help establish efficient web processes for the team. He's one of the strongest all-round developers and team leads I've worked with.
