In attempt to gain the upper-hand in both tech and automotive fields, Tesla’s hiring efforts have come at the hands of industry-leading tech giant Apple. Already ahead of the industry in many ways, Tesla looks to further extend the lead by hiring 150 employees from the Silicon Valley company.

As software becomes a dominant part of a car’s DNA in the very near future, the fight for talent will certainly intensify as traditional automakers play catch-up.
