Commissioning Project Manager, Cell Materials Manufacturing

Company: Tesla Motors
Location: Fremont
Posted on: May 3, 2021

Job Description:

The Role:

Designing and building world-class Gigafactories, at record speed, is key to enable Tesla to scale worldwide. We are looking for a highly motivated Construction Project Manager to support the Tesla Cell Materials Engineering team to work on a critical challenge facing the world's energy transition - production of battery cathode materials.

This task includes the development and scale-up of novel, high-energy and low-cost cathode materials and the development of first-of-a-kind processes that shorten the path from mine to cell. You will be asked to own and drive the construction execution of state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities as we scale up novel and exciting processes at high speed. Your role will be critical, as the success of these manufacturing processes is closely tied with the success of the facility.

You will interface with organizations across Tesla - Engineering, Production, Quality, Supply Chain, Production Planning, Operations, and the Executive team - to drive the completion of new manufacturing facilities, as well as providing input in the planning and execution of future battery materials manufacturing facilities. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in engineering, construction, and program management.

You will lead construction projects from initial facility design through procurement, construction, and commissioning. You will communicate and present construction status, highlight schedule risk, and develop recovery plans in the event of a project slip. This role will be office-based primarily during the design and planning phases and will transition to more field-based support once construction is underway.


  • Work with Cell Engineering, Factory Design, Procurement, Project Controls, Commissioning, and other supporting functions to drive the completion of state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities at record speed.
  • Develop a solid understanding of the manufacturing process and how it drives requirements for the facility systems - use this throughout the design, procurement, and construction phases to propose strategies to improve schedule, reduce cost, and satisfy factory requirements.
  • Review factory designs for constructability. Collaborate with designers to develop an optimal factory solution for unique facility requirements.
  • Create, maintain, communicate, and present construction schedules for projects to the project team.
  • Track construction status of projects and action items against the schedule.
  • Identify creative ways to overcome construction obstacles and meet the schedule despite setbacks.


  • Degree in Architecture, Engineering, or Construction Management
  • At least X years of experience on large commercial or industrial construction projects.
  • Preferred industries: Chemical, Semiconductor, Mining, Pharmaceutical
  • Demonstrated understanding of cost estimation, construction quality, construction methods, equipment fabrication, and contract management.
  • Ability to read, interpret, and manage changes to:
  • Architectural and Finish plans & specifications
  • Structural and Civil plans & specifications
  • Mechanical, Electrical, and Process systems
  • Experience with facility equipment procurement, GC management,
  • Demonstrated experience creating, maintaining, and communicatingschedules. Ability to identify issues and develop corrective measures to resolve.
  • Ability to work cross-functionally and communicate effectively with engineers, executives, operators, and trades.
  • Proven ability to operate under pressure while managing multiple priorities simultaneously. Must be able to work in a fast-paced environment, occasionally requiring extended hours and getting your hands dirty.
