Tesla is gearing up for mass production of Megapacks. The company’s Megafactory in Lathrop, California, has opened a large recruitment for dozens of new positions, most of them being in production.
The Tesla Megafactory for the production of revolutionary Megapacks has again opened a massive recruitment. This time, the company announced it via its LinkedIn, where it also shared a video of the new factory, including the exterior of the building and even the production halls. Judging by the video, the equipment has already been installed at the factory, and production has even begun.
Currently, Tesla's website has at least 41 positions listed across seven areas of the Megafactory: Manufacturing, Engineering & Information Technology, Vehicle Service (related to production machines), Energy - Solar & Storage, Construction & Facilities, Operations & Business Support, and Supply Chain.

As Tesla CEO Elon Musk has repeatedly explained, a sustainable energy future is based on three pillars: sustainable energy generation, stationary battery packs, and electric vehicles. The company works in these directions simultaneously and is now working especially hard on the production of a large number of stationary battery packs. Solar, wind, and hydro energy is not always immediately available, so it is necessary to have batteries that will store energy in order to use it when needed.
In April 2021, Tesla began preparations for the construction of a new factory that was supposed to build Megapacks. The manufacturer named it the Megafactory with the aim to achieve a production capacity of 40 GWh of Megapacks per year. Sometime in mid-February 2022, the shell of the building was completely ready, and already by April, Tesla announced that it was ramping up production. This meant that the Megafactory was operational and already producing components critical to a sustainable energy future.
