GM to Hire 1,000 High Tech Employees in Phoenix - 03/06/2013

Fourth IT Innovation Center completes geographic plan for hiring best and brightest

CHANDLER, AZ – General Motors is hiring 1,000 high-tech employees to staff an Information Technology Innovation Center in this Phoenix suburb, joining Austin, Texas; Roswell, Ga., and Warren, Mich., as the centerpieces of GM’s strategy to bring high-value IT work in house in support of the business transformation underway.

GM expects to hire more than 4,000 new information technology workers over the next three to five years to staff the four centers. So far, more than 1,000 employees have been hired for the three locations previously announced.

“Recruiting talented IT professionals is intensely competitive," said GM Chief Information Officer Randy Mott. “To hire the best and the brightest, we need to create employment opportunities that differentiate our company from the competition – location is one such advantage.”

GM chose the innovation center locations by looking at IT talent-rich areas that also offer a strong community, lower cost of living and a high-tech industry presence.

“Operating four IT Innovation centers geographically dispersed across the U.S. allows us to offer employment opportunities to hundreds of thousands of IT professionals, over 75 percent located within a 500-mile radius of any one of the centers,” Mott said.

Four of five students majoring in IT at higher education institutions in each state are within a three-hour drive from a GM IT innovation center. Combined, the four centers have access to more than 7,000 students at more than150 colleges and universities majoring in information technology-related fields. GM will target recruitment efforts at up to a dozen key universities within each of the four geographic regions.

The Innovation Centers support all aspects of GM’s business. The talent-based hubs of excellence accelerate the development and implementation of innovative IT solutions for existing and future business.

GM is specifically looking to hire talented IT professionals with a range of capabilities, including software development, database administration, and system analysts. Innovation Center employees will support all of GM's IT needs, including web technologies, end-user applications and systems, dealer systems, factory systems and vehicle technology.

Effective April 1, GM will open a temporary center and begin hiring in Phoenix until its permanent building in Chandler is completed. The new Innovation Center is expected to be operational by first quarter 2014. Interviewing for jobs will begin immediately. Interested candidates can apply for positions at http://jobs.gm.com/.

GM to Open IT Innovation Center in Georgia - 01/10/2013

Third of four Information Technology Innovation Centers will employ about 1,000

ROSWELL, GA – General Motors will hire approximately 1,000 high-tech workers to staff a new Information Technology Innovation Center near Atlanta. The automaker needs software developers, project managers, database experts, business analysts and other IT professionals for the third of four centers in the United States.

"Locating this center in Atlanta makes good business sense,” said GM Chief Information Officer Randy Mott. “We can draw from a deep pool of high tech expertise through the surrounding colleges, universities and talent residing in the area."

GM already has hired more than 700 IT specialists to work at the Innovation Centers in Austin, Tex., and Warren, Mich. Response in the market has been strong as three of four candidates offered jobs to date have accepted them.

The Atlanta Innovation Center will be located in Roswell, a northern suburb of Atlanta.

“This Innovation Center is exactly the kind of employer we want in the state,” said Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal. “The information age will be with us for a long time, and attracting companies such as GM that are on the cutting edge of manufacturing and technology is a huge win for Georgia.”

Mott is leading a rebalancing of information technology at GM under which the majority of IT work will be done by GM employees instead of being outsourced, which has been the GM model for most of the last three decades.

“We look to the Innovation Centers to design and deliver IT that drives down the cost of ongoing operations while continuously increasing the level and speed at which innovative products and services are available to GM customers,” Mott said. “The IT Innovation Centers are critical to our overall GM business strategy and IT transformation.”

The location of the fourth site will be announced at a later date.

GM Opens New IT Innovation Center in Michigan - 10/08/12

Approximately 1,500 high-tech jobs to be created

DETROIT, MI – General Motors is opening an Information Technology Innovation Center in Warren, Mich., and expects to hire up to 1,500 high-tech employees over the next several years to support the company’s new approach to IT services.

The GM Michigan Innovation Center is the second of four planned Innovation Centers in the United States. GM last month announced the opening of the first facility in Austin, Texas, where 500 new IT jobs will be created.

“We’re currently seeking the next generation of game-changers to help us usher in a new age of automotive innovation at GM,” said GM Chief Information Officer Randy Mott.

The IT Innovation Centers play a critical role in GM’s overall IT business strategy. GM is looking to create and deliver IT services with new capabilities that will help the company improve its performance, drive down the cost of ongoing operations and increase the level of innovation delivered to GM customers. To support this approach, GM is moving to a more in-sourced IT business services model as part of its overall IT Transformation.

“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,” said Rob Enderle, principal analyst at the Enderle Group in San Jose, Calif. “This is also one of the best opportunities for IT professionals to work in the automotive industry.”

Available positions include software development, project management, database management and business analysis. GM is recruiting recent college graduates and experienced professionals for these jobs.

GM recruiters are visiting U.S. college campuses this fall and participating in local job fairs targeting IT professionals. For more information and to apply for one of these positions, potential job candidates should visit http://www.careers.gm.com/itjobs.

GM to Add 500 New I.T. Jobs in Texas - 09/07/2012

First of several Information Technology Innovation Centers opens in Austin

AUSTIN, TX – General Motors is hiring software developers, project managers, database experts, business analysts and other information technology professionals to staff the first of several new IT Innovation Centers in the United States intended to drive breakthrough ideas into GM vehicles and business processes globally.

"We want IT to keep up with the imagination of our GM business partners, and to do that, we plan to rebalance the employment model over the next three years so that the majority of our IT work is done by GM employees focused on extending new capabilities that further enable our business," GM Chief Information Officer Randy Mott said.

Austin was chosen for an Innovation Center because the city already has people with the skills GM is seeking - 46,000, according to the May 2011 Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Employment Report.

"We anticipate hiring as many as 500 new GM employees in Austin," Mott said. "We look to the Innovation Centers to design and deliver IT that drives down the cost of ongoing operations while continuously increasing the level and speed at which innovative products and services are available to GM customers.

"The next generation of IT workers, the talented visionaries we want contributing at the Innovation Center, are being trained at top computer science schools in Texas and surrounding states," Mott said. "The IT Innovation Centers are critical to our overall IT business strategy and transformation."

GM already has more than 4,500 employees in Texas, including about 1,800 at GM Financial locations. Approximately 2,500 people build Chevrolet, GMC and Cadillac SUVs in Arlington, where a recently announced third shift will start in the first quarter of 2013. In addition, a new $200 million stamping plant is under construction that will create or retain approximately 180 jobs. Two Customer Call Centers are based in the state, and GM is a corporate partner in the Pecan Street sustainable living project in Austin.
