Four years ago, exactly I was free from all obligations with my previous employer and started to work for ForgeRock.
My first goal was to setup the French subsidiary and start thinking of building a team to take on development of what we named a coming later OpenDJ.
4 years later, I look at where we are with ForgeRock and I feel amazed and really proud of what we’ve built. ForgeRock is now well established global business with several hundreds of customers across the globe, and plenty of opportunities for growth. The company has grown to more than 200 employees worldwide and still expanding. The ForgeRock Grenoble Engineering Center has moved to new offices end of May and counts 13, soon 14 employees and we’re still hiring.
Thanks to the ForgeRock founders for the opportunity and let’s keep rocking !!!
As ForgeRock is growing fast and we have a number of new hires joining us in the Grenoble Engineering Center, we’ve moved office for a larger space, still in the same building.
The new office has a large open space area where all engineers (dev, QA and doc) can work and exchange.
It also has a couple of smaller office for managers , and a decent meeting room, that has already been hacked :-)
And the good news is that the new office will allow us to hire even more, in the next months and years.
After a record Q1, ForgeRock has now secured $15M in series B financing.
This is a great news, and is definitely setting us on a great global growth path.
Welcome to our new partner Foundation Capital, and thanks to Accel Partners for the renewed investment.
I’m sure most of you have seen this already… I’m posting it here for posterity !

Let’s pop up the volume now !!!
My ex-colleague Eduardo Pelegri has been collecting and posting interesting data about the ex-Sun people and the Sun initiated open source projects, a year after the Sun-set. I find interesting to see how the Sun heritage is disseminating and creating a larger ecosystem of new companies.
