NEW YORK (February 20, 2018) – Today, Fast Company honored Motivate as one of the top ten most innovative companies in social good, as part of the magazine's annual Most Innovative Companies issue. Operating bike share systems across the nation, from New York to the Bay Area, Motivate continues to lead in making bike share a key component of the mobility solutions for modern cities.
In 2018, Motivate continues to develop its technology and operations to further cement itself as the leader in bike share. Motivate is working to expand its Bike Angels program, which incentivizes Citi Bike riders to use their people-power to help rebalance bikes across the system. Motivate also continues to develop new products, with the recent news that Motivate has been selected to transition the Minneapolis bike share system to a dockless network, and its plans to add pedal-assist ebikes to the Ford GoBike system in San Francisco.
"Through our best-in-class bike share operations, Motivate makes commutes shorter, neighborhoods closer, and biking easier. Our mission is to deliver solutions to create healthier, greener, and more accessible cities — and that's why I am so pleased that Fast Company has selected Motivate as one of the most innovative companies in social good. We look forward to delivering additional innovations to our cities and riders in 2018," said Jay Walder, President and CEO of Motivate.
"This year's Most Innovative Companies list is an inspiring and insightful window into how many companies have embraced innovation and are working to make meaningful change," said Fast Company deputy editor David Lidsky.
Fast Company's ranking of the world's 50 Most Innovative Companies for 2018 honors leading enterprises and rising newcomers that exemplify the best in business and innovation across various sectors. Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company's signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.
Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies issue (March-April 2018) is now available online at www.fastcompany.com/MIC, as well as in app form via iTunes and on newsstands beginning February 27.
The pandemic's impact on collaborative software company Quip's technical recruiting team started slowly.
First, their roster of engineering interviewers started to dwindle as rising concerns about COVID-19 led some of them to start working from home in January and February, remembers technical recruiter Grace Kim. "We needed to rethink how we conducted our onsite interviews with a limited pool," she says.
Brittany Boardman went to her first interview with Stack Overflow without expecting much.
"I'm not technical, I'm not an engineer. And I wasn't necessarily looking [for a new job]. But Stack just blew me away," says Brittany of her first exposure to the company behind the world's largest and most trusted software developer and technologist community. "The people I met that day seemed like they genuinely liked coming to work. There was this cohesive belief in what the company was doing. I was converted pretty quickly after that interview—Stack was somewhere I wanted to join."
