The second of four planned Innovation Centers by General Motors is opening up in Warren, Mich. where it expects to employ up to 1,500 high-tech employees over the next several years.
The American automaker is focusing on its new approach to IT services and hopes the four centers will help “usher in a new age of automotive innovation at GM,” said GM Chief Information Officer Randy Mott. The goal will be to create and deliver new IT services that will help the automaker improve its performance while reducing the cost of ongoing operations. More importantly, it aims to increase the level of innovation GM can deliver in its vehicles to its customers.
GM is recruiting college graduates and experienced professionals and available positions include: software development, project management, database management, and business analysis.
“GM is executing an IT best practice by insourcing IT services and making them a strategic part of assuring GM remains a fast-moving leader,” Rob Enderle, principal analyst at the Enderle Group in San Jose, Calif said. “This is also one of the best opportunities for IT professionals to work in the automotive industry.”
