Leaving Liferay

After 12+ years at Liferay, it's time to move on to something new.

Time to cross eduardo.lundgren@liferay.com from your contacts. It's been an extraordinary 12+ years at Liferay, but everything comes to an end. I'm thankful for every opportunity and all the brilliant people I worked with. Having said that, I'm thrilled about what's coming next!

Once I heard the advice that it does not give you years of experience spending many years at the same company, but a few years of experience repeated many times. I don't see it this way. My journey at Liferay had several different phases. My last one, which I am most proud of, is the Liferay Cloud department's conceptualization.

Liferay Cloud has grown from a handful of people into an established group present in all regions of the globe. The Liferay DXP Cloud platform evolved from a simple concept into an enterprise-ready solution. Our customer base now includes major brands such as SkyTV, Vodafone, and Gympass, serving hundreds of thousands of users worldwide.

Many things have changed, but our vision remained intact: To give developers the power to deliver better solutions faster.

On the personal side, one way to know if I did a decent job as a leader is to see the product continuing to succeed after my departure. I am leaving behind a great team and a great product. They are in good hands with the new leadership. I am eager to see their continued growth from the outside.

For my Liferay friends, thank you for all the trust and hard work during the past years. I hope we can meet again in the future
