This is what Tesla uses for front end devolpment

Welcome back! As some of you may know i’ve been making a ton of articles on the programming languages used at tons of popular companies, now let’s look at what Tesla uses for their front-end development! In order for me to find these languages I went over to Tesla’s career page, looked at relevant positions and noted the most frequent languages I saw:

The languages / frameworks that Tesla uses for front end development are: PHP, CSS, Ruby, React, Angular, Node, Javascript and Typescript. If that’s all you wanted to know then you’re welcome, otherwise let’s get into more detail of these languages / frameworks:

PHP, CSS and Ruby

First off we have PHP, CSS and Ruby, I saw quite a few Tesla positions require these languages as well. PHP is a web development language, massive websites like Wordpress (the framework) were built using PHP, if you plan on applying to any engineering position at Tesla, learning PHP would be a very smart thing to do. CSS is another web development language, this is a massively popular language essentially used to add more “character” to websites. Ruby is another language used for web development, although it can be used to do more than that, it is mostly used for its various web development features.

React, Angular & Node

These frameworks are pretty similar to one another, they are essentially libraries for Javascript. It’s always better to learn both of these languages, but the main difference is that Angular is built by Google and React is built by Facebook. Both of these frameworks pride themselves on their ability to develop web applications on different platforms, so I would recommend learning both of these libraries to improve your chances at getting a job at Tesla! Node is essentially a runtime, it allows you to run your Javascript code without being inside of a browser.

Javascript & Typescript

Interestingly enough, almost all of the most popular websites use Javascript as their front end (with very few exceptions). Javascript is a dynamic object orientated language that essentially focuses on the front end, Typescript is actually a language created by Microsoft which is pretty much an updated version of Javascript. Both of these languages are extremely popular (obviously Javascript more so) and if you’re planning on becoming a programmer at any company, chances are you’ll probably run into Javascript or Typescript.

There you have it, those are most of the common languages I saw required by Tesla for their front end positions. Like I mentioned before, even though the programming languages are important, the frameworks and technologies they require are very important to the positions as well.
