Otta's take

Though founded by serial antagoniser Elon Musk, The Boring Company’s underground transportation projects have led to the firm becoming a certified unicorn since its founding in 2016. Inspired by the congested transport system of Los Angeles, The Boring Company has completed successful tunnel projects in Las Vegas as well as products that help transport materials underground with as little disruption as possible.

In April 2022, The Boring Company received $675 million in Series C from the likes of Sequoia Capital and Valor Equity Partners, indicating a massive influence on the construction market of America.

Musk undermines the success of The Boring Company with website advertisements for zombie apocalypse “not-a-flamethrowers” and a perfume retail page for his “Burnt Hair” fragrance. Though obviously meant as jokes, these belittle and obfuscate the work that The Boring Company's employees put in. 2024 saw safety violations being raised concerning the Boring Company's Vegas tunnel, which will span 68 miles beneath the Nevada city.

Benefits

  • We offer employer-paid medical, dental, and vision coverage, a 401(k) plan, paid holidays, paid vacation, and a competitive amount of equity for all permanent employees.

Company values

  • To own a project is to take it from concept to completion and every TBC employee owns their responsibilities.
  • TBC is a lean company, so employees work with whatever they have to inspire creative solutions.
  • The Boring Company encourages collaboration and seeks individuals that know how to get things done: the Not-A-Boring Competition exemplifies these values.
