The highlight every year is the famous Motius surprise trip. We've already been to Muscat, Stockholm, Riga and Venice.
Our headquarter is located in Munich, we also have offices in Stuttgart and Dubai. We don't have fixed desks at Motius. Rooms and areas have certain rules and furniture and therefore offer everybody to find a place where they can be productive, e.g. in a silent room, areas with standing desks, couches, meeting rooms, workshop, or in an open space. We offer you fresh fruits, coffee and cool drinks. But, remember to always lock your screen: if not, you'll probably volunteer to bring a cake or muffins to the office.
