Former Tesla manufacturing engineer Victor Prajapati, who played a Key role in their battery cell production, has joined Rivian as a Director Of Manufacturing Engineering.

During his time at Tesla, Prajapati's LinkedIn account says he "managed one of the critical bottlenecks for Model 3 production during "production hell" ramping the line from <10 cars/week to 3,000 cars/week"

What are the odds that Tesla is going to cry foul over this hiring like before?

Sounds like the guy Rivian desperately needs coming out of a rough 2020. Across the board automakers are gearing up for a strong and stable 2021 and Rivian can't afford to not keep pace. Electric F-150 deliveries won't be far off and few will give it a second thought (me included).

For sure, from the looks of his resume he's going to be a key player for Rivian hitting the ground running with production.
