GM is hiring over 1,000 IT professionals at its Phoenix center

Article by Anita Panait, on March 8, 2013

General Motors is hiring 1,000 workers to be stationed at its Information Technology Innovation Center located near Phoenix, Arizona. The IT innovation center is GM’s fourth in the US, next to Austin, Texas; Roswell, Georgia; and Warren, Michigan. The IT innovation centers are part of GM’s strategy to bring high-value IT work in house to complement the ongoing business transformation.

GM looks to hire over 4,000 new information technology workers over the next three to five years to staff the four IT innovation centers. GM has already hired over 1,000 employees for the Texas, Georgia and Michigan IT innovation centers.

GM Chief Information Officer Randy Mott remarked that recruiting talented IT professionals is intensely competitive, noting that to hire “the best and the brightest,” the carmaker needs to create employment opportunities that differentiate GM from others, saying that location is an advantage.

He said they selected the locations of the innovation centers by looking at IT talent-rich areas that also offer a strong community and lower cost of living as well as a high-tech industry presence. Mott said that by having four IT innovation centers geographically located across the US, GM could offer employment opportunities to hundreds of thousands of IT professionals -- over 75 percent of whom are placed within a 500-mile radius of any one of the centers.

Four of five students majoring in IT at university or college in each state are within a three-hour drive from a GM IT innovation center. All the four IT innovation centers have access to more than 7,000 students at over 150 universities and colleges majoring in information technology-related fields. GM will conduct recruitments up to a dozen key universities within each of the four geographic regions.
