In a series of tweets late Thursday, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk said he’s on the lookout for “hardcore software engineers” to “achieve generalized full autonomy” for his line of electric cars.
Should mention that I will be interviewing people personally and Autopilot reports directly to me. This is a super high priority.

The latest addition to that lineup was the Model X unveiled at the end of September — around the same time that Musk told one publication, “If you don’t make it at Tesla, you go work at Apple.”
Musk says he will be interviewing candidates personally. Separately, Tesla announced a recall of all 90,000 Model S cars sold globally after a report of a faulty seatbelt.
Shares in the company fell 2.6% on the Nasdaq index following the announcement.
Musk has made clear for a while that there will be a software switch he magically turns on that will release an update to existing vehicles, endowing them with a self-driving consciousness. But that’s still predicted to be some years away yet — probably at least three.
