Join the journey.
At Motorola, we have a long tradition of innovation. From the invention of the DynaTAC in 1984 to the release of Moto X, Moto G, Moto E and the soon to be released Moto 360 – each disruptive in their respective segments; we’re changing the way the world defines mobile technology. With the goal to sell 100 million phones each year, we’re ready to be the number one smartphone provider in the world by 2015. It’s ambitious, we know, but we’re up for the challenge.
To get there, we’re doing things differently. Here, you won’t find hierarchy or bureaucracy. Our people work in supportive, dynamic teams where new ideas are always welcome and things get done. When you join us, you’ll collaborate with global colleagues who will inspire and motivate you.
If you share our commitment to ingenuity and creativity, we want you to help us define our world of tomorrow.
Every time someone powers on a Motorola innovation, we like to think it's charging up the world — making someone smile, say "wow," get a little more out of their day.
That's our mission: empowering life. We do it by bringing our own lives to work every day: our energy, our hobbies, our shared vision.
That passion to empower life is what we look for in our people. It’s how we dream up products that change lives. And it’s why we support the inspiring sweet spot where life and work intersect.

I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Motorola Mobility.Interview Details
I met the hiring manager of Motorola at a job fair held by my university and was contacted for an interview after a month or two. I was contacted after a month or two and had a phone interview with the same person that I met at the fair and another engineer that he was with. They asked me pretty standard and behavioral questions, some of the same as in the in-person interview below. I don't remember the phone interview as much as the in-person.The in-person interview was actually quite difficult and lasted almost an hour. I spoke with about 4 different people and with multiple at the same time.
Questions they asked me:
1) What classes are you currently taking?
2) What's your biggest strength?
3) What's your biggest weakness?
4) How are you classes going?
5) If you were at a stoplight and the light failed to turn green for a longer than normal amount of time, what would you do? ( I said turn right then make a U-turn =P )
6) Tell me about a time in which you did not get along with someone, and how did you handle it?
7) Tell me about a time in which you took charge or were in charge...
8) They explained to me what the company does at that office, after he asked me what I've learned or what I didn't know or what I liked about the company(I guess to see if I was listening, which is hard to do when nervous).
And some technical questions:
1) He showed me an inductor connected to a DC voltage source. Close to the aforementioned inductor was another one that was connected to a resistor. He asked for the voltage in the resistor. This one I got correct, the answer is 0 V because the source was DC. The source has AC in order to create a magnetic field in the inductors which results in induced current in the inductor/resistor connection and a voltage seen across the resistor.
2) I was shown a square within another square and asked how many squares where there. I guessed and got this one incorrect because I had never seen it before. Don't remember the answer. There was an equation that I had to know to solve the problem, but he just wanted to see how I worked through it I suppose.Interview Questions

Motorola created the mobile communications industry. We invented most of the protocols and technologies that make mobile communications possible, including the first mobile phone, the first base station, and most everything in between.
Today, we are combining that pioneering spirit with a renewed commitment to consumers. That’s why our phones run on Android, the world's...
