Read the latest press releases from Postman. You'll find everything from feature announcements to industry thought leadership to updates on the Postman team.
Postman is the leading collaboration platform for API-development, used by more than 25 million developers and 500,000 companies worldwide. Postman is an elegant, flexible environment used to build connected software via APIs, quickly, easily and accurately. Postman is headquartered in San Francisco and has an office in Bangalore, where it was founded.
Abhinav is a developer and entrepreneur who began his career at Yahoo. He started Postman as a side project as he grappled with the complexity of connecting disparate pieces of software via APIs. Existing API tools were primitive, especially when it came to testing and debugging. This inspired Abhinav to create the free Postman app, which quickly drew 500,000 developers with no marketing. Joined by two former workmates, Abhinav launched Postman Inc. in 2014. Today, Postman's API Platform has more than 25 million users worldwide and is spearheading the API-first approach to software development. Abhinav holds a B.E. (with honors) from India's Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani. Outside of work, Abhinav can be found spending time with his family, reading several books at once, or exploring the newest release on PlayStation 5.
Ankit started his career in engineering roles at Adobe and Yahoo, where he met future Postman co-founder Abhinav. Together, they discovered the power of APIs, as well as the problems that could arise from a lack of effective tooling. This shortcoming spurred Ankit to help found Postman Inc. Ankit has experience in product, business, and development and now leads the core technology group at Postman. He has a B.E. from India's Netaji Subhas University of Technology, as well as an MBA from the Indian School of Business. Ankit is a Chelsea football club supporter and loves his piano, books, beers, and bacon.
Abhijit is a software engineer who began his career at Adobe, Walmart, and TeliportMe, which was Postman co-founder Abhinav's first startup. They were part of a small team building a complex API and needed to share information throughout the development cycle. During this time, usage of the Postman app exploded, and Abhijit joined Abhinav and Ankit in creating Postman Inc. Abhijit holds a B.E. (with honors) from India's Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani. He loves to read in his spare time and is learning to play the piano. Abhijit has been known to show up at work wearing a swimming cap after an absent-minded commute.
