20 new Austin jobs are up for grabs at The Boring Company. (The Boring Company/Twitter)

The Boring Company, founded by Elon Musk as an infrastructure and tunnel construction group, has announced more Austin-based job openings.

You know how annoying Austin traffic can get? Well, Musk was sitting in traffic one day—probably not driving himself, but you get the gist—and as any billionaire would, he founded a company to try and fix it.

It's not exactly clear when successfully mass-producing flamethrowers was thrown into the mix. However, The Boring Company's quick fix for traffic involves a system known as the "hyperloop"— more on that here.

Since late May, the company has instituted a hiring push into Texas' capital city and those hedging their bets in the city of second chances.

The very ground you walk on in Austin is a specific point of interest for the company and their tunneling endeavors, and the company has called Austin chalk "one of the best soils for tunneling."

If you're an Austinite, drive a Tesla or listen to Joe Rogan, you might fit right in to the company owned by Austin's most eccentric billionaire.

Twenty jobs in Austin are available across careers in engineering, operations and production.
