Materials Engineer, Wrought Aluminum Materials

Company: Tesla Motors
Location: Fremont
Posted on: June 9, 2021

Job Description:

The purpose of the Tesla Materials Engineering organization is to facilitate the Tesla mission of accelerating the world to sustainable transportation via identification, development and insertion of advanced materials and processes while supporting other Tesla Engineering and Manufacturing functions with materials expertise.

The Role:

The team is seeking a Materials Engineer as a specialist metallurgical lead for all wrought aluminium materials.


  • Subject matter expert for all wrought aluminium in North America.
  • Develop new and novel aluminium alloys and processing for future products.
  • Qualification of locally produced sheet aluminium for use at any Tesla site globally, but with a primary focus on raw materials used in local stamping operations.
  • Materials level validation of aluminium extruded products.
  • Evaluation of material equivalency of localized aluminium components including the raw materials and metallurgical joining processes (welding, brazing etc.) to ensure that the materials meet the design intents.
  • Materials design engineering support to drive issue resolution and cost savings.
  • Author Material and Process standards as needed.


  • Materials Engineering degree. Metallurgical Engineering focus and advanced degrees are preferred.
  • Knowledge of process-structure-property relationships in aluminium sheet, forgings, extrusions (5XXX and 6XXX), and steel sheet (Low Carbon, Low Alloy, Multi-Phase, Martensitic), as well as their relevant manufacturing processes.
  • Familiarity with metallurgical joining processes (brazing, welding, friction stir).
  • Experience with robust manufacturing quality systems and qualification processes (PFMEA, lean manufacturing).
  • Experience conducting and understanding standard mechanical property testing.
  • Ideal candidate will be able to provide specific examples of evaluations of raw materials that demonstrate not only an ability to follow standards, but also a deeper understanding of the functional requirements of the property evaluation using a first principles approach.
