Position: Program Manager, Product Security

Much has been said about a future of “connected cars.” At Tesla, we make it happen. We regularly send over-the-air software updates to our vehicle fleet, seamlessly delivering new features and improvements to our customers. Our mobile applications allow customers to interact with their cars via real-time, low-latency two-way communication. Today we remotely identify potential vehicle issues before a customer does—and often fix problems remotely too. To this end information and product security is of the utmost importance.

Tesla is looking for a Technical Program Manager to manage our Vehicle Software Security initiatives. This individual will manage multiple cross-functional software & security teams, ensuring the design and development of our embedded software security systems for vehicles, batteries, and charging systems. This cross-disciplinary role will entail assessing requirements, identifying risks, managing development schedules, and communicating clearly with project stakeholders. In short, this individual will be responsible for helping ensure internal security initiatives are prioritized and properly communicated throughout the firmware organization.
