While the flyer does not make specific mention of Tesla, it does note that workers will be involved in the production of “lithium-ion cells for electric vehicles” and other products. Applicants must also be willing to work 12-hour day or night shifts.

Panasonic is a long time partner of Tesla and also a key investor at the $5 billion battery facility in Sparks, Nevada. The company is currently producing lithium-ion battery cells for Tesla’s line of energy storage products and expected to begin mass production, in conjunction with Tesla, of high performance ‘2170’ battery cells to be used in Tesla’s mass market Model 3 sedan.

Tesla made the announcement through a press release last week, saying “The high performance cylindrical ‘2170 cell’ was jointly designed and engineered by Tesla and Panasonic to offer the best performance at the lowest production cost in an optimal form factor for both electric vehicles and energy products.”

Tesla anticipates Model 3 cell production to begin during the upcoming second quarter.
