A job advert posted by Tesla, Musk’s booming electric car maker, said the company is hiring for a customer support specialist whose responsibilities include handling online complaints directed at the chief executive.
“Tesla Energy Support Specialists handle a variety of customer issues while delivering on world class customer service,” the original job listing read.
“The role of a specialist is to resolve or escalate complaints through appropriate channels and address social media escalations directed at the CEO with critical thinking.”
The advert has since been updated to remove the references to “social media escalations” after the company was widely mocked online.
Musk, who this month overtook Jeff Bezos to become the world’s richest person, is an ardent Twitter user, sharing regular updates about his latest ventures with his 42.6m followers.
He is often subjected to criticism from disgruntled customers, who air complaints about Tesla vehicles.
The new appointment comes months after Tesla reportedly laid off its entire PR department.
The company did not list a salary for the role, which is fully remote, but said it included full benefits such as a healthcare plan.
Tesla closed up 18.390 at 844.550. Volume was 49% below average (neutral) and Bollinger Bands were 115% wider than normal.
