Job postings show that The Boring Company is adding personnel in Austin, which is where Tesla is currently building a factory.
The Boring Company tweeted a link to the jobs Monday, adding that ‘”Austin Chalk” is geologically one of best soils for tunneling.”‘
The job postings include jobs such as electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, business development lead, and technical recruiter.
The Boring Company’s other tunneling projects have been in partnership with local governments adding transportation services. For instance, the company is building “The Loop” in Las Vegas to serve the Las Vegas Convention Center. Passengers will travel in Tesla vehicles through two 0.8-mile underground tunnels.
It’s not clear that Tesla has any formal contracts in Texas.
Elon Musk continues to look to Texas as a location for his companies. In July, Tesla announced plans to build a $1.1 billion, five-million-square-foot site near Austin for a factory that will manufacture the Tesla Cybertruck, among other products. SpaceX also has a significant operation in Boca Chica, Texas. The location serves as a private rocket production facility, test site, and spaceport for the company.
