Our technology supports the global food industry

We’re a technology team developing software to support the global food industry. The Motiion Platform supports information flows within and across companies in the food value chain, enabling players in the industry to focus on their own specific tools and systems.

We believe modern technology and open, transparent information can foster trust, reduce waste, improve profitability and, ultimately, feed the world.

Motiion is a remote-first company and we give our employees the opportunity to solve challenges in the global food industry while living and working wherever you are most comfortable. We believe in transparency, diversity, merit and fostering a culture of accountability, personal impact and career growth.
