Neuralink Corp is looking to expand for one sole reason, this is part of the billionaire’s strategy to be able to tap other talent pools far beyond Silicon Valley. The job posting on the company’s very own website shows four different positions in Austin, Texas including three positions in engineering along with one in the accounting division.
The postings also appeared in a particular wake of a live event that was hosted by Elon Musk himself in order to demonstrate Neuralink’s very own brain-interface machine that was implanted on pigs and was able to capture their neural activities.
Neuralink is hiring
Elon Musk also billed last week’s very own presentation as a way for Neuralink to be able to recruit their needed staff. He also called for different applications from engineers, coders, and also especially those who already have already been able to create or “ship” a product. Elon Musk says that there is no need for actual brain experience.
Elon Musk has been spending more and more time looking for more and more opportunities outside of California. His very own Palo Alto, the California-based popular electric-car company, Tesla, also has operations within other cities including New York, Buffalo, Nevada, Reno, and also Shanghai!
The Tesla Problem in Silicon Valley aside from Neuralink
Recent plans for Elon Musk include trying to open up a new Gigafactory in Berlin. Elon Musk even threatened to move the headquarters of Tesla all the way over to California back then in a showdown with the local health officials back in May over the popular automaker’s plans to actually reopen a plant that was nearby just a few weeks after its closure due to the COVID-19.
Ever since back then, Tesla has actually proceeded to expand their operations over to California and has outlined plans to build a major factory for its new Cybertruck as well as its Model Y over in Auston. Texas is also the home for many of Tesla’s chip engineers.
The job postings
Although a representative for Neuralink did not immediately give a response towards the different Neuralink Austin job listings, The city is currently home to a particular University of Texas, Austin, which although has just a small town, also has a rapidly growing medical research community.
The university’s very own flagship campus has opened its medical school just four years ago. Paradromics Inc., which is another brain-machine interface company, just so happens to also be based there.
Still, the majority of Neuralink’s hirings are towards Fremont, California, where Elon Musk’s company has a total of 18 positions that are open. Former employees have also described the environment as somewhat high-pressure as well as fast-paced, which in the end results to fairly high turnover.
