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.
