Liferay opens new office in Bengaluru; will hire 200+ engineers

The US-headquartered digital user experience provider is hoping to double its India workforce by 2025


Liferay, the California, US-headquartered cloud-powered digital user experience platform (DXP) provider is gearing to double its headcount in India. It plans to expand its workforce in the country by at least 200, in two years’ time.

It is on the lookout for entry-level engineering and management talent, who will be working out of its new office in Bengaluru, in various roles across cloud technologies, product development, operations, marketing and sales.

Brian Chan, founder and chief software architect, Liferay, explained how Prime Minister Modi’s emphasis one Digital India “and the need for a robust digital ecosystem”, has led to a boom in the country’s DXP market. Add to it “the highly skilled tech talent of the country”, and India has become “a sweet spot for us”.

Chan is “confident that our new office in India will help us unlock several employment opportunities and give us a great momentum as we expand product offerings while continuing to offer exceptional service to clients”.

The global tech company has a strong presence in 19 countries across, EMEA, APAC and the Americas. It now aims to attract the best talent in India and expand its local presence.

As part of the new hiring plan, Liferay has created an internship programme that will nurture and train engineering and management candidates from top institutes across India. Upon successful completion of the programme, the interns will be offered full-time employment opportunities at the Company.

This hiring spree can be attributed to Liferay’s plan to tap into the $710.0 billion market opportunity in the country. While the DXP market is growing rapidly and is expected to reach $13.9 billion by 2024, the recent focus of the Indian government on Digital India has only given a push to it in the country. Additionally, the demand for integrated, customised, and streamlined experience and engagement across various digital touchpoints is one of the major drivers for the increased adoption of DXP.

Founded in 2000, Liferay has over 1200 employees across the globe, including India. The company offers businesses across B2B, B2C and B2E with flexible, scalable, accessible and secured tailored accelerator solutions including customer portals, intranets and supply-chain solutions that help manage personalised user experience.
