Software development is hard.
Postman makes it easy.
Postman is the only complete API development environment. Today we have 10 million developers and over 500K companies using our comprehensive set of built-in tools to support every stage of the API lifecycle. With Postman you can design, mock, debug, test, document, monitor, and publish your APIs all in one place.
Postman first gained popularity in 2012 when Abhinav uploaded his project to the Chrome Web Store. Postman eventually graduated to robust, native apps and is now used by over 10 million developers and 500K companies.
Postman started as a side project to address challenges in API testing. Abhinav Asthana, Postman's CEO and co-founder, set out to create a tool that would simplify the API testing process. Along with co-founders, Ankit Sobti and Abhijit Kane, Abhinav found Postman, the world's collaboration platform for API development.
Postman's mission is to encourage creativity by providing user-friendly tools that help people create innovative software.
At Postman, we create with the same curiousity that we see in our users. We value transparency and honest communication about not only successes, but mistakes. In our work, we focus on specific goals that add up to a larger vision as we continue to move forward. Our inclusive work culture ensures that everyone is valued equally as important pieces of our final product. We are dedicated to delivering the best products we can.
