Motorola stands for trailblazing innovation, quality, and authenticity. We’ve spent nearly 100
years leading people through uncharted territory…and the next century is going to show that
we’re just getting started.
Technology is not an industry, it’s a tool that can be used to drive meaningful change. A pioneering spirit,

Camera systems that use Artificial Intelligence, touchscreens that fold perfectly flush—the

continue to innovate.
…at the center of everything we do. To us, bringing people together doesn’t mean everyone is the
same. Our obsession with innovation is driven by a commitment to humanity and engrained in our
company culture. Initiatives dedicated to understanding consumer wants and needs are tested on
the very employees who work at Motorola. Just listening isn’t enough—we hear consumers because
we are them.
