Each of us has an inner child who sometimes wants to play. Tesla CEO Elon Musk knows this very well, so the company's cars are built with a treasure trove of entertainment for every taste. Video games are one of the many pleasant in-vehicle diversions offered by the popular EV-maker.

Tesla Games are a great way to pass the time, whether you are charging your car or are in Camp Mode. Musk is constantly striving to expand the list of titles available in Tesla Arcade:

In order to develop new games and entertainment for Tesla owners, the company needs professionals who specialize in this. In mid-August, Tesla opened recruitment for several positions to develop such content. Interestingly, all posted positions are to based in Austin, Texas. Here are the openings:


  • Software Engineer, Mobile
  • Rendering Engineer, Software Infotainment
  • Software Engineer, Vehicle User Interface (C )
  • Video Games Engineer, Infotainment Software

All specialists will work on improving the vehicle's infotainment system. Tesla writes:

"Our goal is to set the bar for what a car UI can be; by creating an interface that flows so naturally, it makes the car feel like an extension of the driver's body. We want to work with people who are excited by this goal and have the talent to deliver on it."

One of the most interesting positions is Video Games Engineer:

"In this incredibly rare opportunity to help build a video games platform, we are looking for a highly motivated software engineer to help enable the best video game content to be available in-car. Come put that industry experience to great use and help us build this platform."

Musk knows first hand that sometimes we all just need to relax and have a little fun. That's why we can depend on Tesla cars to help us do just that.
