General Motors (GM) – Why Work For Us?


Speed of Innovation

From vehicle electrification and fuel cell technology to autonomous driving and mobile connectivity—GM strives to build the future of transportation today.  We are the first to deliver an affordable, high-range electric car to the masses with the introduction of the 2017 Chevy Bolt. Since 2013, the team has been working to advance hydrogen fuel cell technology, with plans to open a factory and begin mass production of fuel cells by 2025.

GM will expand its Canadian engineering base to reach a total of approximately 1000 positions over the next few years. The new GM Canada work will be focused in the areas of Autonomous Vehicle Software & Controls Development, Active Safety and Vehicle Dynamics Technology, Infotainment and Connected Vehicle Technology, all important areas for the development of new connected, autonomous and shared vehicles and mobility systems.

And we’re ushering in the future of personal mobility, leveraging our recent investment in Lyft and acquisition of Sidecar to launch our car-sharing brand Maven. Maven, the expansion of our current “Let’s Drive NYC” pilot program in New York, provides on-demand transportation services worldwide. Customers can experience an unprecedented level of connectivity and personalization with our OnStar-enabled cars, including the ability to unlock, remote start, and even set heating/cooling preferences conveniently from their smartphone. Other digital services, such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM radio, and 4G LTE wireless, are available inside Maven cars as well.
