This approach allows us to evaluate results and requirements continuosly, enabling us to respond to change quickly. We organize our teams via Jira and document all important information in Confluence.


Office vibes

Our headquarter is located in Munich, but we also have offices in Stuttgart and Dubai. We normally don’t have fixed desks at Motius but due to Covid-19, everyone has a fixed desk and/or is working from home. Our office provides a range of environments to allow everyone to be productive, like in our open space, silence room or our beloved workshop. We have various kitchen and community areas with fresh fruits, coffee and of course our tabletennis and kicker (football) for your breaks.
But, remember always to lock your screen: otherwise, you may end up volunteering to bring a cake or muffins to the office.


How we deal with Covid-19

To ensure that we all stay safe and healthy in these challenging times, we have established office rules to protect our community. We encourage our Motees to work from home on a voluntary basis and provide them with furniture, equipment and more necessities for the perfect home office set-up.

However, our office remains open and safe if you feel too socially distanced, thanks to the various protection rules and measures in place.

First interviews and most of the technical interviews are being conducted remotely at present. For Experience Days, we will invite you to our office and follow our social distancing measures.
