Movoto categorizes employees into functional areas—but daily operations are so collaborative that the lines between departments and individual experience levels are nonexistent. Because of the flat hierarchy and company-wide transparency, individual team members are valued for their talents without being pigeon-holed into a single lane. Then, managers support internal exploration and career development through relaxed relationships that encourage autonomy.
Friendly competition is a staple of life at Movoto—starting with regular foosball matches, late nights around board games, and the annual MOlympics showdown. Most importantly, employees are encouraged to have fun—the company’s Mo’Culture Club is constantly looking for ways employees can enjoy their workplace, as well as earn Movoto bucks by participating in company events, going to open houses, hosting Lunch & Learns, and so forth.
