DETROIT — General Motors plans to hire up to 1,500 workers to staff a new computer technology center outside Detroit.
It is part of a move to bring 90 percent of information technology in-house, which GM believes will make the company more nimble and efficient. The carmaker plans to hire 10,000 people at four new technology centers in the next three to five years. The centers will help get breakthrough ideas into the company’s cars and trucks, GM says...

...The company is recruiting on college campuses and local information technology job fairs. It’s looking for people to fill jobs in software development, database management, project management and business analysis.
New Chief Information Officer Randy Mott wants more people in the company working on development and innovation, and integrating the tasks into GM’s day-to-day business, Huston-Rough said.

The new computer center in Michigan will be housed on the grounds of GM’s technical center in Warren, north of Detroit.
