General Motors is racing toward electrification of its vehicles and the company will need a lot of help to achieve its lofty goals. Battery-electric vehicles like the new Hummer EV and Cadillac Lyriq are consuming huge amounts of engineering, design, and information technology resources as they edge nearer to production, so the company says it is adding 3,000 jobs.

The company aims to revolutionize its product development and software as a service, so they are offering more remote opportunities than ever before in areas such as autonomous vehicles, electric vehicles, and advanced technology like GM's Ultium battery. listings include jobs for electrical system engineers, infotainment software engineers, and controls engineers, along with developers for Java, Android, iOS, and other platforms.

“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."

To make the company more attractive to a wider talent pool, GM employs supportive employee resource groups that are designed to help employees acclimate and provide opportunities for professional development, community outreach, sharing of experiences, and foster personal growth throughout employees’ careers. 

General Motors provides 12 weeks of paid family leave to assist with challenges involving family care. You can find GM's engineering jobs listed here.
