Tesla had 26,900 Superchargers at 2,966 Supercharger stations as of last quarter, with 49 percent and 46 percent growth year-over-year, while new Superchargers are rolling out nearly every week.
The figures also come ahead of Tesla’s wider release of the Supercharger network, which will allow owners of other electric vehicle (EV) brands to charge at Supercharger stations.
In addition to its rapid expansion of the Supercharger network, Tesla has added several job listings for Supercharger Site Design Managers, which will be in charge of deploying Superchargers, reports Electrek. The job description reads:
The Supercharger Design Manager role entails active program coordination of all deployment phases of Tesla’s Supercharger projects, including construction feasibility diligence, layout and design, utility design and easements, permitting, construction, site commissioning, and closeout. The ideal candidate has relevant hands-on experience managing infrastructure projects (up to thirty projects at one time across multiple states/provinces) and demonstrates a bias to action, logical problem solving, and mastery of a project’s tactical details. Finally, s/he brings high energy and an optimistic approach to fully completing projects in a swift and quality manner.
Tesla has listed these positions in a number of locations, including Phoenix, Denver, Albuquerque, Oklahoma City, Austin, Dallas, and Houston.
The news of Tesla’s Supercharger expansions also comes ahead of the completion of Tesla Gigafactory Texas, which will allow the company to increase car production significantly. According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the facility will span almost a mile long upon completion.
