DETROIT — General Motors is opening an Information Technology Innovation Center in Warren, 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 CIO 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.
