Chris Lattner, Creator of Swift, Leaves Tesla After Only 6 Months

Former Apple executive Chris Lattner is leaving Tesla. He barely lasted six months on the job. “Chris just wasn’t the right fit for Tesla, and we’ve decided to make a change,” the electric car company said Tuesday, according to The Wall Street Journal.

He did tweet though that he was interested in any available roles for a seasoned engineering leader. “Turns out that Tesla isn’t a good fit for me after all,” reads his impromptu tweet. “I’m interested to hear about interesting roles for a seasoned engineering leader”.

Tesla is at the forefront of innovation, although the company’s insistence on deadlines and targets might be holding them back a little.

Credited as the creator of Swift, Apple’s new modern pogromming language, Lattner left Apple this January to take a position as Vice President of Autopilot Software at Tesla. During his Apple tenure, he also held the title of Senior Director of the Developer Tools team.
