There are some big companies that are so prestigious and such a living legend, that the quality of their employees is obvious. One of these companies is evidently Apple, whose ex-employees are very well seen in any business, but especially those that are already on top. The perfect candidate who seeks and “captures” all ex-Apple employees is Tesla Motors.
Until now, Tesla has employed more than 150 people that used to work for Apple, in domains like engineering and legal. This fact has been reported Thursday, in Bloomrand. It seems that no other company matters to Tesla as much as Apple does, because there are no workers coming from the same place such as from this one. The reason stated by Tesla’s CEO and founder, Elon Musk, is that the design philosophy of Apple is “relatively closely aligned” with the one that Tesla owns.
Tesla is known all over the world as being the number one electric car maker at this time, and it’s not only the performance that they are concentrated on. In fact, Tesla succeeded in creating cars that are both effective and good looking. Plus, they are ingenious model by model. Furthermore, the costs of Tesla electric cars have lowered in the recent years. For example, a future model that is going to be released in 2017 is presumed to cost about $35.000, which is not very much for this sort of a car.
The current control screen of Tesla cars it entirely made by a former Apple designer, Brennan Boblett. Joe Nuxoll and other Apple alumni are also part of the team of developers.
“You try to design it so that it requires not a whole lot of thinking. It’s more like an iPhone than a Ford.”
Tesla’s retail stores have been created in 2010 also by an ex-employee of Apple, and he was one of the first ones of Tesla. He has produced over $1.2 million for the company in 2012 and has left it the next year.
“Everything Tesla did was unique for the auto industry. If you go back to Apple 15 years ago whenever I started there, basically everything we did there was counter to the industry as well.”
A big number of former Apple and actual Tesla employees have been identified with the help of LinkedIn profiles: Rich Heley who joined Tesla in 2013 as senior director for manufacturing technology and is now vice president for product excellence; Lynn Miller is, since last year, the associate general counsel; Beth Loeb Davies, director of training programs; and Nick Kalayjian, a director of power electronics who has joined Tesla in 2006 and has received a lot of patents for this work in the company.
