GM to hire up to 500 for computer center

General Motors, which is shifting computer- technology functions to the company from outside firms, plans to open four new information- technology centers in the U.S., each staffed by at least 500 people.

The first of the centers, in Austin, Texas, is already open with a handful of people, and hiring will ramp up gradually as GM finds the right workers to fill the jobs, the company said Friday.

It’s all part of a move to bring 90 percent of GM’s information technology from outside companies in-house, which GM believes will make the company more nimble and efficient. GM could add as many as 10,000 people to do the work globally in the next three to five years, said Randy Mott, the company’s new chief information officer.

“We are changing the mix very substantially to have a lot more people doing development and innovation,” Mott said on a morning conference call.

The positions would have to be self-supporting, an investment with a return that helps GM cut information-technology costs and bring changes that would boost market share and revenue, Mott said. The innovation centers would develop software and change processes to help GM bring new vehicles to market faster, he said. “Every area of our company is in the midst of transforming,” Mott said.
