About Us
Bicycles are two hundred years old, but bike sharing is brand new. The missing piece was the mobile, cloud, and IoT technology necessary to tie the whole thing together. At Motivate, we are building that technology. We design our own bicycles, hardware, and every component of our software stack to provide the most fun, healthy, and green mode of urban transportation for the 21st century.

We have partnerships with Fortune 500 companies and the biggest cities in North America, both of whom believe in our vision and our ability to execute. Our revenue, headcount, and number of bikes under management are all increasing rapidly. Join us, and help build the future of transportation.

About the Job
Data is at the core of everything we do. We have a distributed network of bikes, stations and apps which are constantly generating outputs. We synthesize this data to make decisions about every aspect of our organization: marketing and growth, bike availability and demand management, supply chain optimization, identifying hardware issues, and fraud prevention.

We are hiring our first dedicated Data Engineer to centralize our data pipelines in one place and produce robust high performance infrastructure for generating actionable information. The consumers of this data will be business analysts and data scientists across the organization, whose improved access to standardized data will make them more effective at guiding our decisions.

This is an opportunity to have a huge impact on the data infrastructure of a unique organization with an important purpose and lots of interesting challenges. The work that you do here will determine the processes and culture around data for a long time to come.

An Insider's view of Motivate LLC

What's something quirky about your company?

Being a bike share operations company, we’re obviously on bikes a lot. If we go to a meeting at another location in the city, a happy hour after work, or just commuting we tend to travel on bikes in packs #bikergang. Biking is obviously not required but definitely a preferred form of transport

Abbie Clifford

Talent Acquisition Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

Right now we are all about growth! NYC announced it will be nearly tripling the size of its bike share system to 40,000 bikes. That growth means more customers, more bikes, more stations, and more management to support the operations. Scaling up processes fills every day with new exciting problems to solve!

Tyler Bradford

Senior Data Analyst

How does the company support your career growth?

Motivate really invests in their teams. We like to promote from within and help all employees create and explore their own career path. It's not uncommon for someone to start in one department or move/get promoted to another. Personally, I used to manage our field team of ambassadors, and now I manage operations for our ebike roll-out.

John Brock

eBike Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The bike share industry is constantly evolving, and we are continuously rolling out new products and testing and iterating on new ideas to improve. One week we’ll build an algorithm for bike repairs; the next we'll be designing solutions to eBike batteries. Our team values creative, data-driven thinkers who aren't afraid to roll up their sleeves.
