GM Canada issues online coding challenge to find software developers
The challenge is run completely online, where candidates take one of the automaker’s coding tests. If they pass, they qualify for a direct invitation to interview with GM’s talent acquisition department.
In June 2016, GM Canada announced it plans to hire 1,000 research and development employees who will develop the company's software for self-driving, autonomous and connected cars. The coding challenge is a way to help fill those jobs, the company said.
The challenge is open to everyone worldwide, not just Canadians, and for the time being the challenge is open with no end date.
“We need to look at all the talent out there,” Graham said.
For example, the Chevy Volt alone has 10 million lines of code and it’s not autonomous. By comparison, the last space shuttle had 40 million lines of code, Graham said to illustrate how much of a role coding now plays in the development of today’s vehicles.
