An Insider's view of Motional

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

For the past 15 months we've been a remote organization, hiring 450 remote team members across our global organization. We recognize as we start our return to normalcy, we must remain flexible and continue to evolve, understanding that balance is essential. There is a conscious, respectful and phased out approach being made by each team leader.
