Motive has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, which means our company is recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in 2019.

The Employees’ Choice Awards program is based solely on the input of employees who voluntarily provide feedback on their jobs, work environments, and companies. The reviews are posted on Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites.

Motive keeps growing

This honor comes at a time of tremendous growth. Over the past two years, we have built the world’s leading network of connected trucks. More than 250,000 drivers and 50,000 trucking companies use our technology to improve the safety, efficiency, and reliability of their fleets.

“Trucking is the backbone of the American economy but has largely been ignored by Silicon Valley. Our mission is to connect the world’s trucks and bring this industry online,” said Shoaib Makani, CEO and co-founder of Motive. “This award and our incredible growth are a direct result of our values based culture that empowers people to do their best work. None of this would be possible without the exceptional team we have built.”

Our expanding leadership team

In addition, we’ve recently added a seasoned team of tech executives from Google, Twitter, Amazon, and Uber.

Jai, our new Head of Product, wrote a blog post about why he decided to join Motive. Jai, who was previously at Uber, explains, “Without exaggeration, trucking is the lifeblood of our modern economy. Trucks move over 70 percent of the nation’s freight by tonnage, moving nearly 11 billion tons of freight annually. This represents 200+ pounds per person, per day!”

Motive’s new leadership is just part of our aggressive hiring throughout 2018. Our company now has more than 800 employees that span six global offices, including a beautiful new office in the heart of Nashville, TN.

Creating a culture that fosters teamwork and productivity, coupled with plenty of office perks like hobby hour (where team members teach other a favorite skill), bi-monthly karaoke parties, and free lunches are just a few reasons why Motive is a great place to work.

What do our team members love about Motive?

The Glassdoor reviews speak to the collaborative and transparent culture which make for positive and happy work vibes. Here’s what some team members had to say:

“I’m very impressed with the professionalism, sincerity, and drive exhibited by the entire staff. It’s refreshing to have a leadership team that is really making the extra effort to make [Motive] a place where people are genuinely happy to go to work.”

“One of the most collaborative and transparent companies – which is amazing, especially with the radical scaling that’s happened overnight. The people who do really well take the initiative, from bringing ideas, executing them, and optimizing.”

“I’ve worked at multiple SaaS companies, across many different segments, serving multiple industries. This is the first company I’ve been a part of that has it all.

The leadership at the top is experienced and outstanding. The industry has a huge potential that’s completely underserved by technology. The culture is amazing, employees can be themselves, along with having the ability to make a real impact.”

“This company has done an incredible job getting top talent and great people. It’s honestly, a joy to come to work every day, not to mention the flexibility when you need it to take time off.”

“CEO and COO are extremely approachable and transparent in everything the business does. It’s no wonder the company is one of the fastest growing SaaS companies in history and another reason we are poised to scale on top of that.”
