15 Minutes Spent Sleuthing the Case of the Missing Fab.com Engineering Team

December 29th, 2011

Stumbling onto this Fab.com 2011 retrospective, reminded me of something that’s been puzzling me. While I knew a bunch of great folks going to work for Fab.com, including Lori Dorn and Beth Ferreira, I didn’t know any of their geeks. Which is odd in a small tech scene like New York.

Turns out the geeks are True Sparrow Systems, they appear to be a boutique Rails shop, they’re based in Pune, India, and described as co-founders. And Jason Goldberg did his last company, socialmedian, with them as well.

Mystery solved.

    What do you think of their strategy to partner up with True Sparrow Systems rather than simply outsource the development of their product to India or have an in house team in NYC?
