The acquisition was a strategic move for the company, founded in 2007, according to ex-Microsoftie, and TalentSpring founder and chief executive Bryan Starbuck. TalentSpring’s 10 full-time employees will be staying on with Talent Technology, including Starbuck, who will become the vice president of product management under the new company.

Talent Technology currently has about 95 employees, and was recently ranked by Software Magazine as the 352nd largest software company worldwide. With the acquisition, TalentSpring’s Seattle offices will become the new regional offices for Talent Technology.
