Our Purpose

We’re committed to making WorkLife better—for our users and our own team members. In today’s world, the line between Work and Life is blurred, and it’s become harder and harder to find time to do the things that matter most. We believe technology can solve that. At Motus, our technology helps our users find new efficiencies in their WorkLife, and that gives them time back.

Our WorkLife Pillars

We believe that we make WorkLife better for mobile workers with our products and services. And because we’re so focused on making WorkLife better for our users, it’s especially important to us that we have the best WorkLife possible at Motus.

Our approach to having the best WorkLife is built on three pillars.



You should love what you do, and who you do it with. We hire people we want to spend time with—both in and out of the office. Our downtown office has unreal views of the city, a fully-stocked kitchen, and lots of space to collaborate. We do everything we can to make life more fun and less stressful for our team members, from Happy Hours and philanthropy days to a 401k match and student loan reimbursement.


Staying healthy is important. When we feel good, we’re more creative, focused, and prepared to drive the business forward. From FitBit challenges to group workouts and sponsored gym memberships, standing desks to a fully-stocked healthy snack bar, meditation workshops to flu-shot clinics, and even mid-day yoga breaks, we prioritize the physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing of our team members.



This is all about having the flexibility, tools, and empowerment to execute on our goals in the way that makes the most sense for us. We measure ourselves based on results rather than the amount of time we spend at our desks. We trust our team members to work where they want, when they want, and how they want, and provide the structure and infrastructure to support innovation, collaboration, and career advancement.
