CHANDLER, Ariz. — General Motors is hiring several hundred employees for software-based positions at its Arizona Information Technology Innovation Center in 2022. Over 1,000 GM employees are based out of the 170,000 square-foot facility, located at 2900 W. Geronimo Place in Chandler’s Price Corridor.

The Arizona IT Innovation Center is one of four national GM technology hubs, with sister locations in Warren, Michigan; Austin, Texas; and Roswell, Georgia. These IT Innovation Centers tackle solutions and services redefining GM’s products as the company moves toward an all-electric future. Roles based in Chandler include software developers, software developers in-test, data analysts, business analysts, product managers, project/scrum managers and software architects.

"We are excited to see GM continue to grow its Chandler IT Innovation Center as part of its technology transformation," said Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke. "These jobs created by GM are high-wage, high-skill and provide tremendous employment opportunities for our residents. We appreciate GM’s significant investment in Chandler and look forward to being a partner in their continued growth.”

GM selected Chandler in part for its strong local workforce when it opened the site in 2014, and the company has found success recruiting from area universities, as many of the available positions are entry level.

As GM transforms from automaker to platform innovator, our IT Innovation Center in Chandler plays an integral role for the future,” said Umesh Murthy, director at the Arizona IT Innovation Center. “On top of the region’s deep existing pool of talent, Chandler offers a wonderful quality of life and strong community to newcomers. Those who join GM here will have an opportunity to pursue their passions and contribute to GM’s purpose.”

GM aspires to be the most inclusive company in the world, and in 2021, nearly one-third of all GM’s new hires in the U.S. were women, while 42% were from underrepresented groups. In addition, where the work permits, GM’s Work Appropriately philosophy offers employees the flexibility to work where they can have the greatest impact on achieving their goals.
