About Postman

Postman is an API platform for building and using APIs. Postman simplifies each step of the API lifecycle and streamlines collaboration so you can create better APIs—faster.

The founders

Postman started simply as a side project to solve a specific problem: Abhinav Asthana, Postman's CEO and co-founder, set out to create a tool that would simplify the API testing process. As the tool's usage quickly exploded, Abhinav recruited two of his former colleagues, Ankit Sobti and Abhijit Kane, to help him create Postman, Inc. Postman is now the world's leading API platform, and the three founders still lead the company to this day.

Our values

At Postman, we create with the same curiosity that we see in our users. We value transparency and honest communication. We love to hear about our successes, but we value and appreciate the opportunity to learn and grow from each other's mistakes.

Create with curiosity

We repeatedly ask, “Why?” and challenge best practices. Asking “Why?” and “Why not?” is how we start each experimental journey, with a willingness to fail until we succeed. At Postman, no star is too far to shoot for.

Earn trust

We seek input first and listen before taking action. We're always open to perspectives because a diversity of thought and discussion improves our chances of discovering the best solutions.

Embrace constraints

We see constraints as an opportunity to be creative and resourceful with the people and tools we have available to us.

Win together

We count on each other, always offer help, and focus on solutions. We are a hybrid workplace spanning the globe, but Postmanauts are part of a tight, trusting community that appreciates each person's contributions toward Postman's mission.

Own & deliver

We learn from our mistakes and adapt with ease. We push ourselves to take bold but smart risks, and we celebrate failures for the learnings we gain as a result.
