Tesla might have chosen to put more limits on Autopilot, but that doesn't mean it's slowing down the software's development, as well. In fact, Elon Musk has revealed on Twitter that he's "ramping up the Autopilot software team at Tesla to achieve generalized full autonomy" as soon as possible. The automaker is currently looking for "hardcore software engineers" to join the team. Sounds like you? You don't need to have prior experience working on car tech, but you have to be prepared to face Musk himself during the interview process, as the Autopilot team reports to him directly. At the moment, Tesla's Autopilot feature can park your car and steer the wheel for you, but it's not capable of completely taking over just yet. The CEO calls this project "a super high priority" -- after all, he did claim that the company will have a fully autonomous vehicle within three years. Check out Musk's tweets below the fold, including the email where you can send samples of your work.
