|GM to hire 1,000 at new IT Center in Atlanta|
ATLANTA—General Motors will hire approximately 1,000 high-tech workers to staff a new Information Technology Innovation Center in Roswell. The automaker needs software developers, project managers, database experts, business analysts and other IT professionals for the third of four centers it is opening in the United States.
"Locating this center in Atlanta makes good business sense," said GM Chief Information Officer Randy Mott. "We can draw from a deep pool of high tech expertise through the surrounding colleges, universities and talent residing in the area."
"This Innovation Center is exactly the kind of employer we want in the state," said Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal . "The information age will be with us for a long time, and attracting companies such as GM that are on the cutting edge of manufacturing and technology is a huge win for Georgia."
General Motors Co. and its partners produce vehicles in 30 countries, and the company has leadership positions in the world's largest and fastest-growing automotive markets. GM's brands include Chevrolet and Cadillac, as well as Baojun, Buick, GMC, Holden, Isuzu, Jiefang, Opel, Vauxhall and Wuling.
