Bengaluru, March 2, 2023: Liferay, the US-headquartered leading cloud-powered Digital User Experience Platform (DXP) provider today announced that it intends to double its headcount in India and onboard more than 200 engineers and management candidates in the next 24 months. As a part of its commitment, Liferay has also opened a new office in Bengaluru, which will pave the way for its rapid expansion.
With a strong foothold in 19 countries across, EMEA, APAC, and the Americas, the global technology company aims to attract the best talent in India and expand its local presence. In the next two years, Liferay’s Bengaluru office will hire experienced and entry-level engineering and management graduates for various roles focusing on cloud technologies, product development, operations, marketing, and sales.
As a part of the new hiring plan, Liferay has created an internship program 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 Liferay.
Liferay’s hiring spree can be attributed to the company’s aim of tapping into the $710.0 billion market opportunity in the country. Globally, the DXP market is growing rapidly and is expected to reach $13.9 billion by 2024. While the COVID-19 pandemic gave a significant boost to the industry by accelerating digital transformation initiatives, the recent focus of Indian Government of Digital India along with the demand for personalization from customers for integrated, customized, and streamlined experience and engagement across various digital touchpoints are major drivers for the increased adoption of DXP.
