Tesla is hiring for management positions across different states following the launch of Beat Zero, a new service by the company’s ride-share app that aims to increase electrification and safety in the sector.

 

The largest EV manufacturer in the world aims to expand its employee base in Mexico by hiring an auto prototype operator, a logistics analyst, a supply chain manager and an in-the-field commercial technician in the states of Nuevo Leon, Baja California and the State of Mexico. Supply chain manager applicants must count with three years of experience in the field, knowledge of mechanical subassemblies and previous manufacturing experience. Other positions require candidates to have a fluency in Spanish and English, strong analytical skills, experience with solar photovoltaic systems and experience specific to the position.

 

The first mobile app to offer transportation services using EVs, Tesla’s Beat, launched Beat Zero. The new service will further enhance electrification efforts in Mexico by offering clients trips with zero carbon emissions through its private fleet of EV. The fleet is composed of JAC Ej7 vehicles and will soon launch in Mexico City, reducing the annual carbon emissions equivalent to processing 190,000 trees.

 

The launch of Beat Zero will generate over 700 employment positions between drivers and administrative jobs. The fleet for the services represents over 15 percent of the EVs sold in the country during 2021, greatly enhancing Tesla’s mission of electrifying the country’s automobile sector.

 

“Beat Zero reaffirms our primary belief: the future of mobility can only be sustainable. But we also wanted to address a vital necessity for residents: traveling with safety and tranquility. For us, betting on Beat Zero is giving our users the assurance that they will arrive safe and sound to their destinations as they enjoy a tranquil and comfortable transit. That’s where the name Beat Zero comes from, as we bring a service with ZERO worries,” said Alejandro Arbeláez, Manager of New Verticals, Beat Zero.

 

Beat Zero’s drivers will have to complete about 20 trainings to ensure an enhanced customer experience. Training will address customer service, emotional intelligence and management of emergencies, among other areas. Each trip will be monitored by cameras installed in the vehicle to ensure drivers follow a strict protocol for health and safety regulations following WHO recommendations to maximize safety during the trip.
