A new job posting on Tesla's website shows Tesla is looking to move forward with Tesla Energy Ventures, as first reported by Electrek. Last year, Tesla filed an application with the Public Utility Commission of Texas to sell electricity on the retail market under that name.
The new "Product Operations Manager, Retail Electricity" position, which is based in Austin, will "support the launch and growth of a new electricity retailer in the Texas market," according to the posting.
The role will be responsible for managing retail electricity products, administering the customer portfolio, coordinating customer support, and tracking financial performance. Tesla is also looking for a candidate with experience "in residential electricity retail, preferably with a retail electricity provider in ERCOT," says the posting.
