Jeff Robbins and Matt Westgate met during the early stages of Drupal in 2005. Matt was a Drupal core developer who wrote and maintained the then-popular e-commerce package. Jeff Robbins had landed a big client project with an e-commerce component and reached out to Matt for consulting advice. Over the next 6 months, they developed their professional relationship as Matt helped Jeff with his site.
When Adaptive Path approached Jeff to build a large-scale project for Participant Films, Jeff once again brought Matt into the project and Drupal rose to the occasion. It was then they decided to start a company and help bring the platform to the world.
In 2006, the pair started Lullabot to help bring Drupal to the world. With Matt’s background in computer science and Zen meditation and Jeff’s as a musician, the soothing sounds of a “lullaby” paired with the technical coolness of a “robot” laid the foundation for the company name. Lullabot creates an effortless blend of organic and inorganic elements that convey the importance of being human in business.
