GM Creating 1,000 New Roswell IT Jobs
General Motors will open an IT Innovation Center in Roswell, investing $26 million and creating 1,000 high-tech jobs. The move is part of the company's shift to a new operating model to support its global business goals.
GM will purchase a 228,000-square-foot former UPS facility on Warsaw Road in Roswell for the facility, the third of four such centers it is opening in the U.S. to strengthen its internal innovation capabilities as part of the company's transformation to improve performance, reduce the cost of on-going operations and increase its delivery of innovation. GM will hire software developers, project managers, database experts, business analysts and other IT professionals for the Roswell center. The company will begin recruitment immediately and anticipates adding approximately 1,000 new employees, recent college graduates as well as seasoned professionals, over the next three to five years.
"Locating this Innovation Center in Atlanta makes good business sense because we can draw from a deep pool of local talent," said GM Chief Information Officer Randy Mott. "These Innovation Centers will design and deliver IT that drives down the cost of ongoing operations while continuously increasing the level and speed at which innovative products and services are available to our GM customers."
