About the job

Our Sales and Service departments are deeply engrained in the functional areas of the business, partner, and customer experiences.

Even interns within our sales, delivery, and service organizations support routine analysis and reporting on Tesla vehicle issues and customer support volume fluctuation; provide frequent feedback with data insight to customer team leads, showroom managers, and service centers. Tesla is a fast moving, dynamic environment where flexibility and adaptability are key attributes needed for success.
