In reply to a follower’s Tweet, Elon Musk recently stated that not having a college degree won’t hold you back from working at Tesla. Musk is looking to recruit workers for Tesla’s artificial intelligence team via Twitter, stating “Join AI at Tesla!” before mentioning the artificial intelligence team “reports directly to me [and] we meet/email/text almost every day.”
He continued by saying “a PhD is definitely not required,” in response to someone’s tongue-in-cheek reply. I “don’t care if you even graduated high school,” Musk continued. Tesla’s position in its artificial intelligence department does not require any specific degree, as Musk intends to find those with a “deep understanding” of artificial intelligence no matter the background.
In a 2014 interview with the German automotive publication Auto Bild, Musk let his hiring process be known. “There’s no need even to have a college degree at all, or even high school.” Instead, he looks for “evidence of exceptional ability. And if there is a track record of exceptional achievement, then it is likely that that will continue into the future.”
Although “[e]ducational background is irrelevant,” all candidates “must pass hardcore coding test,” Musk said in the following Tweet.
