Automakers are venturing on an ambitious drive to hire software “codaholics,” thats pitting Detroit against its technology partners in Silicon Valley. The auto industry is so much more high-tech than people realize,” Nair said in an interview early this year. “So we’re really competing against West Coast industries.
Four years the auto industry restructuring that included massive job cuts, Ford and its U.S. rivals need to hire thousands of engineers at a time when software is playing a much more prominent role in vehicle design than even a few years ago.
Millions of lines of computer code increasingly are the core vehicle functions such as braking and air-conditioning. Electronic parts including sensors and microcontrollers, used in laptop computers and smartphones, are the backbone of such vehicles. This shift has General Motors Co., Ford and Chrysler Group LLC seeking a a new kind of talent — engineers with software, electronic and computer network skills — that has typically ignored Detroit. The auto industry has been forced to increase salaries and seek promote Michigan’s image as a good place to work -this is no easy task for the automaker.

The skill sets in the computer industry, cell phones, all the other technology have become the same type of skill sets thats wanted in the auto industry.

Currently,automakers are redoubling their recruiting efforts to combat that image, by showing how they have changed since the 2009 economic crisis that pushed GM and Chrysler Group LLC into bankruptc
