A global open source company, Payara creates innovative infrastructure software, and is delighted to be among the 205 organisations nationally recognised by the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2021.

With offices in Malvern, England, and Madeira, Portugal, the Payara team develop the Payara Platform and Payara Cloud.

Founded by Steve Millidge, Payara is a sustainable open source business that proudly nurtures and grows a collaborative community to advance industry-leading software and services and enable users to create world-class solutions for a diverse range of industries. Payara has increased its annual revenue by 107% over the past three years, with export sales more than doubling from 33% to 75%.

The company has a remote-first team, with employees and suppliers carefully selected for their talents and commitment to growing their skills and potential in their area of expertise, regardless of their geographic location.

Its corporate values are echoed in every team member’s passion and contribution toward the growth of Payara’s business and culture: building strong relationships, maintaining transparency, a willingness to share with others and striving for excellence.

The Payara Platform is designed for mission critical production systems and containerised Jakarta EE (Java EE) and MicroProfile applications, making it easy to quickly and securely deliver Jakarta EE applications in any environment – on premise, in the cloud or hybrid.

Payara Cloud is the next generation of cloud-native application runtime. It’s an easier way to run your Jakarta EE apps on the cloud – simply select the WAR file, click deploy and watch the application run on the cloud.
