Where we began

We started as a group of young, nerdy entrepreneurs hoping to build a for-profit tech company that could be a vehicle for good.

Liferay Inc. was formed by a few software engineers, a stay-at-home mom, and a to-be attorney surrounded by the mismatched, donated furniture in a local church. They had a simple goal: to create useful technology that benefited customers, partners, and employees, and to build an organization that helped others reach their full potential.

The dedication to this goal has taken us from hosting company meetings on church picnic tables to opening offices across the globe, from solely open-source to building a leading digital enterprise platform; and growing from pure technologists to business leaders dedicated to making a positive impact on the world.

What we do

We offer a suite of solutions geared toward solving highly complex digital challenges.

Partnering with integrators from across the globe, we have enabled thousands of companies from various industries, including manufacturing, financial services, and energy and utilities, to utilize the Liferay suite to create digital solutions, such as customer self-service portals, B2B commerce solutions, and modern intranets.
Who we are

We wouldn’t be the company we are without the diverse opinions, experiences, and backgrounds of our employees.

We believe that people are inherently valuable and believe a well-placed individual can make a measurable impact on the organization as a whole. We are truly grateful for the dedicated, skilled, and “nerdy” team we have. 
Who we serve

Without our customers, we wouldn’t exist.

And without their feedback, insight, and support, we couldn’t have created an award-winning platform. We are grateful for all of the organizations who have allowed us to be a part of their business’ growth.
what we believe

We use these five core principles to guide how we operate our business.   

Lead by Serving

We encourage our leaders to serve from the front, to do all kinds of work, and to learn with their teams. How we get results—serving alongside our people— is as important as the results themselves. 

Value People

All people are inherently valuable; who we are is as important as what we can do. We respect individuals from all backgrounds around the world and welcome the diversity that comes from seeking talent from different communities around the world. 

Stay Nerdy

We encourage our people to share their passions and use them as ways to build connections in our organization both in-office and across the globe.

Grow & Get Better

We strive to be an organization brave enough to challenge ourselves and our peers to take leaps of faith needed to grow. 

Produce Excellence

In pursuing excellence, we care not only about outcomes but also about the journey. We won't sacrifice our values just to get the job done. 
Liferay has given me an opportunity to grow personally, professionally, and be a part of a cause larger than just revenue and profit.

Why we give
One of Liferay’s priorities is to serve communities around the world, and one way we do that is through financial support. The challenges we face are far bigger than any one organization can handle, so we love partnering with nonprofits in areas such as: 
  • Education and training in marketable skills
     
  • Access to necessities, including clothing, shelter, and food
     
  • Prevention of human trafficking
     
  • Support for orphans and underprivileged families
     
  • Disaster relief
