Tesla’s Giga Shanghai reached the milestone of outputting 1,000 cars per day last week, and following the news, the company has shared a number of new jobs on Weibo.

On Friday, Tesla shared a series of jobs on Weibo, with titles including a quality inspector, production operator, and logistics operator, according to CNEVPost. Potential hires will have the chance to interview online after submitting a resume and an initial screening for the positions.

The post on Weibo details the jobs, which offer the inclusion of 36 hours of overtime per month with additional bonuses for reaching target performance goals.

Tesla’s base salary for its production employees at Gigafactory Shanghai starts at RMB 5,341 ($820) with a combined annual income of RMB 110,000-120,000 ($17,008-$18,554 USD). Labour in China is far cheaper than in North America.

China remains an important market to the U.S. automaker as it continues to add to its staff and its production volume, given that it’s the world’s largest auto market overall – and that it faces increasing competition from other local electric vehicle manufacturers.
