Our Founders

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.
