California-based Tesla designs and manufactures EVs, as well as EV powertrain components for partners such as Toyota and Daimler. In Q1 of 2013 Tesla has delivered more than 10,000 electric vehicles to customers in 31 countries.

The Manufacturing Introduction Program Manager is responsible for the introduction of new products into Powertrain Manufacturing. This includes managing the program from early prototype builds through to the launch and ramp of the production lines. While the program is in the prototype build phase, the program manager is responsible for all operations including creating and executing the build plan, hiring the production team, planning materials, laying out the manufacturing area and defining/meeting quality targets. As the product moves closer to production, the project manager will drive the handoff of the product to the production team. This requires the project manager to organize a cross functional team to ensure materials, processes, manpower and supporting systems are all in place for the start of production. Once the product is launched into production, the project manager is responsible for managing all change control through the life of the program.
