About us

About us

Headquartered in the heart of innovation, San Jose, California.

Motava’s digital marketing and design/development teams work from our on-shore office and off-shore locations in Croatia and Ukraine.

Motava was founded in 2009 in San Jose, California.

Previously operating as Dalmatech, from 2003 to 2009 the name Motava was created to rebrand our same core team for our newly offered digital marketing services. Dalmatech’s beginnings were in offering tech services and quickly expanded a year later to web design and development services in response to high demand.

The brand shift to Motava was done to focus our image and services away from the technical and onto the creative. Since 2003, our core team has been virtually unchanged, forming a cohesive group with years of experience in website creation and digital marketing.

Motava has 3 worldwide offices with headquarters in sunny San Jose, CA.
