General Motors is hiring 3,000 new employees across engineering, design and IT to help transform the future of product development and software as a service. GM says it will offer more remote opportunities than ever before as development of autonomous and electric vehicles and advanced platforms like the Ultium battery system continue at a fast pace.
Recent virtual development innovations, made by GM’s engineering team, have allowed the company to speed up the product timelines of upcoming EVs while keeping costs low.
GM President, Mark Reuss, says: “As we evolve and grow our software expertise and services, it’s important that we continue to recruit and add diverse talent. This will clearly show that we’re committed to further developing the software we need to lead in EVs, enhance the customer experience and become a software expertise-driven workforce.”
GM says it plans to advance its vision of zero crashes, zero emissions, zero congestion through ‘the development and integration of its world-class software and services’.
