Company: Tesla Motors
Posted on: June 9, 2021
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
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
- Develop new and novel aluminium alloys and processing for
- 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
- 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
