At Payara, we pride ourselves on being a global employer of choice.
We have employees in 13 countries, speaking 14 languages and operating across multiple time zones. We work to ensure everyone feels part of a united team, living our values Community, Growth, Openness, Initiative, Trust, Excellence and Passion, across continents. Of course, this takes hard work and carefully planned initiatives. We’re expanding our People team to make sure we can keep up our high levels of employee satisfaction – and continue to make being a “Payaran” special.
So without further ado: meet Rebekah, or ‘Bekah’, our new People Team Assistant.
A few weeks ago, we held our first Virtual Payara Day of 2022. This is our quarterly online conference, and has evolved from business updates to a way of forging connections in a remote, global team.
Hadar, our new Payara Engineering Manager, joined the team at the same time as Arie, Cheryl and Luis (read their previous Q+As). We onboarded 4 team members across 3 different countries/time zones in the space of one week.
Being a remote-first company means our employees can make living decisions based on their needs, rather than their commute. Our brand-new Software Engineer Arie is feeling this benefit.
He lived for the last four years in Jakarta, the largest city of Indonesia, and namesake of the programming specifications for Java, used with our product, Payara Platform: Jakarta EE. He was able to move back to his hometown Banjarmasin, South Borneo, because of Payara’s remote-first policy, hiring all employees as purely remote workers.
To determine Log4j vulnerability, Payara has investigated its products:
Payara Server Community
Payara Micro Community
Payara Server Enterprise
Payara Micro Enterprise
and concluded that all remained unaffected.
We are overjoyed to announce that Payara has been honoured with the most prestigious UK business award: the Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
Often called the “Knighthood for Businesses”, the Queen’s Award is also renowned worldwide, with Payara’s award particularly recognising our international success.

Platform.SH is an end-to-end web platform for agile teams: a PaaS that aims to manage the application and the services that the application needs, such as a database. Developing close to MicroProfile and Jakarta EE, like Payara Platform, it supports both specifications.
We’re honoured to be guests for the company’s weekly live discussion, hosted on YouTube with live chat. Our engineers Rudy De Busscher and Fabio Turizo will discuss moving your microservices to the cloud with Chad Carlson and Otávio Santana from Platform.SH.
Join Payara engineers for an informative and practical webinar on the recent updates and enhancements to the Payara Platform in the latest release (Payara Platform February Release).
Every month, we answer questions on the most recent release and also discuss a key theme – this month, it’s MicroProfile 4.0, now fully supported in the Payara Platform Community Edition. We have covered what you can expect from the latest specifications in a blog, but please use this opportunity to ask any questions you might have about MicroProfile and its new iteration.
Full support for MicroProfile 4.0 follows us announcing we are part of the MicroProfile Working Group. The MicroProfile project was born as a community initiative to optimise Enterprise Java with a microservices standard platform, and the Eclipse Foundation‘s MicroProfile Working Group proposes and gain approval for new common APIs and functionality – in turn drawing on the knowledge of a wide variety of different vendors. As one of the contributors, Payara engineers will shape and drive the future of the MicroProfile specifications.
Traditionally based in Atlanta, USA, the DevNexus Conference’s goal is to connect professional software developers from all over the world, and help them hear from and interact directly with internationally acclaimed presenters and technologists while also connecting with like-minded developers.
Due to Covid-19, this year’s event will be a free, online-only event. Talks will be presented without interruption, after each there will be a live discussion session with the speaker.
So, following on from my last blog about cashflow, I thought it useful to cover a business plan.
There are always opportunities for new businesses. If nothing else, the coronavirus (COVID-19) disruption has given people the time and space they need to be creative and to think of new business ideas.
Additionally, the unreliable employment situation is acting as inspiration for people to make the leap and go it alone.
However, if you’re serious about creating a business, you’ll need a business plan – and lots of advice.
Originally in Montreal, Canada, ConFoo is a multi-technology conference for developers, gathering over 100 presentations by popular international speakers. This year’s event will be virtual, and will take place online from 22 to 26 February 2021 – with Rudy’s talk to be found on the final day of the conference
Join us on Wednesday January 27th, at 3.00PM GMT, to find out what 2021 looks like for Payara Platform.
Our CEO Steve Millidge will be taking a look at the past year for Payara, and then providing a high-level overview of the next year – before zeroing in on the next few months.
He will be providing a wider perspective of our products, performance and future plans than in our usual roadmaps, which focus solely on the past few months and what’s coming up in the shorter term – so if you’ve never attended a Payara Roadmap Update before, now is the chance to get full view of the plan for Payara!
You’ll also have the chance to ask questions and provide feedback.
This is an annual event gathering developers, engineers, software architects, dev teams, managers and executives from over 70 countries to discover the latest in developer technologies, languages, platforms, and tools – this year conducted virtually.
At Payara Services, we welcome Community contributions through our GitHub. We’re keen to celebrate hard working open source pioneers who are essential to the work we do.
Two of our values as a company are openness – being open to new ideas, and ready to share and collaborate with others – and community – building strong relationships both internally and externally. We hope to make our Community of contributors, who work with us to make our product better and drive innovation, feel included and supported.
The ways our contributors have developed the platform this year have been varied and wide-ranging, and encompass MicroProfile, security, and various bug fixes.
