As Opel looks to break even and push out all-new products, GM’s European arm is hiring 350 engineers to support the ongoing product offensive. Of the 350, 300 will be dispersed to the International Technical Development Center in Rüsselsheim, while the remaining 50 will be sent to the Torino Engineering Center.
The main areas of hiring are simulation, validation, construction, cost engineering and accessories engineering. When it comes to powertrain, Opel is mainly looking for experts in the areas of engine and transmission engineering and calibration.
The GM subsidiary says that the hiring process has already started and will be finalized by year’s end.
