And that’s exactly what we’re looking for – we’ve got a bold vision and we need people who aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo, and who will inspire the industry to think differently and push limits.
“Our goal at Move is to shape the future of urban mobility by casting a spotlight on the creative solutions and disruptors paving the way towards sustainability.”
