Apple and other tech companies have taken in ‘dozens’ of former Tesla employees

Tech companies like Apple, Amazon, and Google have taken in dozens of former Tesla talent, according to a report from Punks & Pinstripes —  as noted by Business Insider. The organization tracked the LinkedIn data of over 450 Tesla employees who left the company over the past 90 days as of June 30.

A large number of the workers moved to work for other EV companies. 90 former Tesla employees joined electric-car makers Rivian and Lucid Motors, per the LinkedIn data. Meanwhile only eight of the departures moved to more traditional automakers, including General Motors and Ford, Pinstripes & Punks said.

Over 100 of the former Tesla staffers transferred to Amazon and Apple, according to Punks & Pinstrips. Apple has hired top Tesla talent in the past. In 2021, the tech giant hired Tesla’s former Autopilot software director Christopher Moore amid rumors of the “Apple Car”project.
