Tesla is assembling a “growth team” from scratch as it gears up to launch Model 3 next year. Earlier this year, the electric vehicle maker hired Praveen Arichandran, a former Facebook Growth Product Manager, as its Director of Growth Programs. Tesla’s recent job listings suggest that the company is eyeing an aggressive expansion, reports Electrek.
Model 3 gives the growth team massive data to play with
Facebook and Uber have their own growth teams that helped them become global technology juggernauts. A growth team uses data to figure out how to exponentially scale the business. The California company has received about 400,000 pre-orders for its upcoming Model 3. It will give Tesla’s growth team plenty of data to work with. Prior to joining Facebook in 2011, Arichandran worked with AMD and BMO.
