About Motus

 

The founders of Motus Design Group witnessed the failure of many truly great ideas during the product development stage and wanted to do something different to see incredible ideas become reality.

 

Motus Design Group was formed as a unique vision of a Product Design company that empowers entrepreneurs and businesses to develop innovative ideas and bring them from concept to production.

About our team

We look for individuals who are motivated by solving challenging problems, excited by interesting projects and new experiences, and who thrive in a friendly, cooperative and inclusive work environment.  As part of the Motus team, you will work with firmware, mechanical and electronics engineers on multiple projects to identify key goals, areas of risk, and mitigation strategies to ensure the best outcome for a wide range of clients and projects (including our own internally developed sport measurement systems).
