Tesla is actively recruiting for a Senior Battery Process Engineer position in South Korea, signaling the company’s expanding focus in the region amidst recent developments in battery production.

The job posting outlines the role’s core responsibilities in managing the rework and remanufacturing processes of modules and battery packs within Tesla’s Remanufacturing workshop. Candidates are expected to possess a comprehensive understanding of battery pack manufacturing processes and collaborate closely with relevant teams to address new pack fault modes, implement corrective measures, and devise repair strategies.

“We welcome talents from diverse backgrounds to join us as pioneers and innovators in Tesla’s global battery remanufacturing efforts,” stated Tesla’s job description for the Senior Battery Process Engineer position.

Tesla’s move coincides with LG Energy Solution’s (LGES) upcoming commencement of 4680 cell production at its Ochang Factory in South Korea next month. This endeavor positions LGES as the first global battery manufacturer to mass-produce 4680 battery cells, with an initial annual capacity projected at 8 GWh.

In addition to its South Korean operations, LG Energy Solution plans to manufacture 46-series battery cells at its newly established $5.5 billion facility in Arizona. Construction at this site temporarily halted to prioritize the assembly line for cylindrical 46-series cells, indicative of LGES’s strategic focus on advancing battery cell production capabilities.

Tesla has integrated 4680 cells into its Cybertruck pickups and selected Model Y vehicles manufactured at Giga Texas. These advanced batteries are set to play a pivotal role as Tesla expands its product lineup to include more affordable models, such as the anticipated $25,000 vehicle and the Cybercab slated for its Robotaxi fleet.
