Tesla's core automation team seeks a technician to support deployment and execution of purpose-built computer vision automation solutions for manufacturing logistics. The devices (smart cameras, depth sensors, etc) are deployed in both warehousing and manufacturing environments for a variety of tasks, but this role focuses on transaction automation. The ideal candidate has demonstrated an interest in computer and industrial systems, and experience working with manufacturing execution systems. They should also want to be on the front line of the most advanced manufacturing facilities in the world, including Tesla's Fremont factory, Gigafactories 1, 2 and 3, and possibly other smaller test facilities.
Daily roles and responsibilities include hands-on, lineside deployment and maintenance of the edge computers and sensor systems, as well as customer interaction, service, and feedback support. While system design, code, and hardware will generally come from software and mechanical engineers, getting the systems to work, i.e., testing them and working with engineers to fix them, is the role of the technician. This includes, for example, i hardware installation, design, monitoring, maintenance, and troubleshooting.
Tesla provides training on all software required to perform the role - no prior experience with machine learning or software engineering needed, although a willingness to learn is crucial.
