Facepalm: Tesla CEO Elon Musk gets rather a lot of attention on social media– much of it is positive, however a reasonable part of it is rather crucial. To stem the tide of grievances Musk gets on any given day, Tesla will be employing devoted staff members who will (to name a few jobs) “address social networks escalations directed at the CEO,” and respond to them with “crucial thinking.”

It’s rather uncommon for a business to hire workers particularly for a purpose like this, however, Tesla is an uncommon company with an eccentric CEO. Maybe that sort of environment requires a different method to customer service (though Tesla does, obviously, still have its own full support department).

This news comes thanks to a job listing released on Tesla’s main website. The position is remote but full-time, and those approved for it will be formally referred to as “Energy Customer Support Specialists.”

The job features complete advantages, and the requirements are remarkably lax– aside from the normal “group gamer spirit” qualifications every business requests, you’ll only require a year of call center experience (or “comparable”) to satisfy Tesla’s requirements.

The task listing makes it clear that “professionalism” will be essential for any applicants, which is just as much for the worker’s sake as it is Tesla’s. Musk has plenty of critics, and it will probably take an iron will to stand up to the unavoidable tide of vitriol you ‘d deal with in a position like this.
