# Description:

MIVA Direct is on the cutting edge of Internet technologies for the network-connected era of consumer software. Headquartered in New York and Cambridge, MA, we are building applications that will help define the next generation of consumer software products.

Miva Direct is a great place to work. The company has a tight-knit, smart, and supportive culture. It's a start-up organization backed by our parent, publicly-traded company, Miva.com. We work hard, but the environment is casual, creative, and fun.
