General Motors announced plans to hire 3,000 software engineers and tech staff to support the development of electric vehicles and new technologies — by the end of Q1. Especially interesting, that talent won’t have to come to Detroit.
“We have a lot of flexibility on where we can draw talent from,” said Ken Morris, GM’s vice president of autonomous and electric vehicle programs.
Nearly a decade ago, Marc Andreesen coined the phrase, “Software is eating the world.”
That’s still happening.
