Description

There’s never been a more exciting time to work in automotive software development and engineering. That’s because our people are the driving force behind GM’s vision of a world with Zero Crashes, Zero Emissions and Zero Congestion.

We’re looking for new team members to help bring this vision to life through cutting-edge research and software development, innovation, testing, and engineering at GM’s Canadian Technical Centre, Kapuskasing Proving Ground and McLaughlin Advanced Technology Track. 

We want those who are bold, innovative, and ready to redefine the way the world moves.

Join our team today!

General Motors’ Software Defined Vehicle (SDV) group unlocks a new level of potential by further integrating our vehicles with their digital world.  SDV has created Ultifi, a new vehicle intelligence platform, designed to unlock new vehicle experiences.  With Ultifi, we will connect with customers through software-defined features, apps and services via Over-the-Air (OTA). The new platform works by separating key software from the hardware to simplify the OTA process, enabling us to provide more robust updates and cloud-services to our customers.

Think this could be a good fit for you? Are you interested to be a part of  a collaborative, driven, and bold organization that embraces innovation and challenges?  If you have  experience in electrical engineering, software engineering, or computer science/programming and you're ready to go all-in to deliver vehicles that evolve digitally with our customers’ lives, let's connect.
