WORKING AT MOTIUS

About our Tech Stack & Infrastructure

With a dedicated DevOps & Infrastructure team we use a continuous integration pipeline based on GitLab CI. We use Docker, Kubernetes, and Openshift for hosting and deployment. Except for that, everybody choses his/her own hardware and OS. We use Slack and O365 for communication and Nextcloud for file sharing.

Our Management Process

Our project management process follows Scrum principles with bi-weekly sprint reviews and retrospectives. A team is managed by a Team Lead in collaboration with a Project Owner. We use a digital Kanban board (Taiga or Jira) and GitLab for Issue Tracking.

Perks

Flexible work arrangements are easily possible - the core team is usually in the office between 9:30 am and 5 pm with exceptions. Home office is possible at least once a month (and more in arrangement with your supervisor). Weekends are holy.

We invest 10% of our work time for learning and exploring new technologies, we call this time ELU. It's basically at two-day company internal hackathon every month for creating prototypes and improving your skillset.

Every year, the core team is invited to a weekend Surprise Trip. We've already been to Muscat, Stockholm, and Riga.

Team & Company Culture

If you ask the colleagues around here, attributes being mentioned are mostly: a very friendly, open-minded, and collaborative environment. People help each other, go have lunch together, and laugh and chat in the kitchen/lunch area. People here are curios, positive, and self-ironic. Most of them are interested in sports, tech topics (e.g. trends), and games.

Office environment

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, in areas with standing desks, couches, in different meeting rooms, in a workshop, or in an open space. But, remember to always lock your screen: if not, you'll probably volunteer to bring a cake or muffins to the office.
