The WSO2 team is thrilled to announce the opening of our new Palo Alto California office! To accommodate our increasing industry and Silicon Valley presence, we’ve expanded our California office location and personnel, and today marked our move from Mountain View and the first day in our new office location!
We’ll drive more of our North American marketing from this location, as well as expand our sales and support reach in this time zone.
Palo Alto is right in the epicenter of innovation and entrepreneurship in Silicon Valley, appropriate to our goal of reinventing middleware and the way businesses leverage information to succeed in the challenging global marketplace. And, with this location, we have a great environment to work from – including being directly above a Starbucks!
A whole WSO2 crew was on hand to help us celebrate, from all four WSO2 continents:
Back row: Devaka (Sri Lanka), Sanjiva (Sri Lanka), Paul (UK), Chamith (Sri Lanka), Hasmin (Sri Lanka), Samisa (Sri Lanka); Middle row: Monica and daughter (California), Udeshika (Sri Lanka), Puny (Sri Lanka), Kushlani (Sri Lanka); Front Row: Jonathan (California), Mahesh (Australia)
After a day of final organization and moving into the space, we held a small office opening ceremony, including taking turns lighting a traditional coconut oil lamp (Samisa demonstrates) followed by sharing some Sri Lankan delicacies – I still don’t know what magic the WSO2 ladies used to conjure them up. And cake!
This opening marks another significant milestone in the ongoing success of WSO2 and would not be possible without the diligent effort of the whole global team of engineers, sales, marketing and operational staff, and of course the best family of customers in the world! Today we salute you with a piece of cake and a Starbucks, and hope you will join us in celebration from whatever continent you are on!
