The automaker says it's hiring , project managers, database experts, business analysts and other information technology professionals for the center in Chandler, Arizona.

The company wants to develop software and other technology in-house instead of relying on outside companies.

The locations were picked because they have a lot of colleges and are rich with technology talent.

GM says it will open a temporary center in Phoenix before a new building in Chandler is finished early next year.
