Motorola Mobility – Why Work For Us?


At Motorola, we have a long tradition of innovation. From the invention of the DynaTAC in 1984 to the release of Moto X, Moto G, Moto E and the Moto 360 – each disruptive in their respective segments; we’re changing the way the world defines mobile technology. With Lenovo standing alongside us, we are now poised for perhaps our most challenging and exciting journey to date. With the goal to sell 100 million phones each year, we’re ready to be the number one smartphone provider in the world by 2015. It’s ambitious, we know, but we’re up for the challenge!

To get there, we’re doing things differently. Here, you won’t find hierarchy or bureaucracy. Our people work in supportive, dynamic teams where new ideas are always welcome and things get done. When you join us, you’ll collaborate with global colleagues who will inspire and motivate you.

If you share our commitment to ingenuity and creativity, we want you to help us define our world of tomorrow.


Every time someone powers on a Motorola innovation, we like to think it's charging up the world — making someone smile, say "wow," get a little more out of their day.

That's our mission: empowering life. We do it by bringing our own lives to work every day: our energy, our hobbies, our shared vision.

That passion to empower life is what we look for in our people. It’s how we dream up products that change lives. And it’s why we support the inspiring sweet spot where life and work intersect.

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (more than 3 years)


    Such a great company to work for, stock options were generous, holidays bonuses twice a year and annual reviews routine. The work was interesting and varied and had a great collection of dedicated engineering staff.

    The office environment was relaxed and friendly but efficient and focused. Management allowed the engineers to do what they do best, engineering with little interruption.


    The only thing I would say I did not like was free phones had a low limit for personal calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, such good pedigree, others can only mimic in envy.
