Rasmus is also a distinguished engineer at Etsy; he authored the first two versions of the PHP language and participated in the development of later versions led by a group of developers. He continues to contribute to the project.  From 2002 to 2009 he was employed by Yahoo! Inc. as an engineer and in 2010, he joined WePay to assist with development of their API. In 2011 he was a consultant for various startups.

Adding to an already remarkable list of accomplishments, Rasmus was named as one of the top 100 innovators in the world under the age of 35 by the MIT Technology Review.

Ruslan Synytsky, Jelastic co-founder and CEO said, “Rasmus is an iconic figure in our world and we are honored that he is advising us.  His contributions to PHP are awe inspiring. Having the creator of PHP on board signifies how serious Jelastic is about being the best PaaS in the world.  As part of the Jelastic team, we plan to utilize his knowledge and skills and apply them to making Jelastic even better!

In 2011, Jelastic launched as a PaaS provider for Java applications. In 2013, the company added PHP cloud hosting to their service options. Jelastic has data centers and hosting partners worldwide and 45,000 users on the platform.

Last month Jelastic announced that veteran Microsoft architect, Mark Zbikowski joined the team, and Rasmus signing on makes an impressive statement about the future of Jelastic.  Other Jelastic advisers are Serguei Beloussov, the founder of Parallels and they have received endorsements and support from the father of Java James Gosling, Michael “Monty” Widenius, and the author of the original version of the open-source MySQL database and MariaDB and David Blevins who founded the TomEE project.

Rasmus Lerdorf said, “PHP has always been about making Web development easy and accessible to everyone.  Jelastic’s approach to PaaS fits nicely with this mission and I am looking forward to helping them build more great products.”
