We're hiring - come work with us!

Motimate is the result of more than 10 years of working with some of Scandinavia's largest companies in improving their internal communication, increasing their sales and refining their employee training. It's an exciting new service that is disrupting the corporate training market.

We're now looking to expand our team and hire 3 new developers to help us take our product to the next level. This is your chance to work on an exciting new app in a brand new company, together with a remote-friendly team that is passionate about building high-quality software.

How do we work?

  • 100% remote. We do all of our work online using services like GitHub, Slack and Google Hangouts. You can either work remotely or in our office in Oslo, Norway.
  • Fast development with a high focus on quality. We don't believe that you need to break things in order to move fast. We ship continuously and use CI and automated testing to keep both a high velocity and high quality.
  • High product focus. We work closely together with our customers to build features that we know will have a big impact on their day to day work. We also continuously gather feedback and data to inform our product decisions.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for developers who are passionate, self-driven and love working with others in a team. Since we do all of our work online you can work remotely from anywhere in the EU/EEA (for contractual reasons we can't hire people from outside of Europe at the moment), or onsite at our office in Oslo, Norway.

Here are the 3 positions we are currently hiring for:

INteraction/UX Designer

We are looking for an Interaction Designer to join our awesome team. If you’re passionate about interaction design, creating products people love to use and work hard in understanding user needs - we’d really like to talk to you!

Required skills
You should be passionate and curious about what you’re designing. You also have solid experience in the field of UI and UX design. You can design effective and innovative concepts. This is why you’re also passionate about details, without loosing the bigger picture. You have at least 5 years of work experience in the industry (but an insanely good portfolio can sometimes weigh up for the lack in work experience). You care about an effective workflow with other team members and strive for making the end product as good as possible.

On a daily basis you’ll get to work close with our developers on both IOS, Android and web. You ́ll be an essential part in the development of Motimate from the very start til the end. From early concept development with the team til following up on design details with the developers close to the end. If you think this is something you would love to do everyday, send us your portfolio to lars-petter@motimateapp.com and we’ll have a talk about design, passion and the future.
