GM to add 3000 Jobs as Focus Shifts to EVs and Autonomous Technology

General Motors says it will hire 3000 new employees across engineering, design and IT as development of autonomous and electric vehicles and advanced platforms like the Ultium battery system continues.

Highlighting the skills that are now important to the automotive industry, the job openings GM is looking to fill includes those for electrical system engineers; infotainment software engineers; developers for Java, Android, iOS and other platforms; controls engineers; and others that will help to build on GM’s current software foundation.

Software expertise, the company says, is core to its Vehicle Intelligence Platform, which brings more electrical bandwidth and the capability to support new active safety, infotainment, connectivity and the Super Cruise driver assistance feature, as well as over-the-air updates.

“As we evolve and grow our software expertise and services, it’s important that we continue to recruit and add diverse talent,” said GM President Mark Reuss. “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.”
