Postman’s Market Momentum Includes $7 Million in Series A Financing, 3+ Million Users, 1.5 Million Monthly Actives, and 30,000 Companies
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Postman, the company providing the complete API toolchain for developers, today announced key milestones in the company’s growth as it emerges from “stealth mode” startup into the larger software development market.
Explosive Growth in APIs
Since the introduction of the first Postman app in 2012, Postman has become the industry standard for Application Programming Interface (API) development, with more than three million active installations and a customer base that includes more than 1.5 million active monthly users at 30,000 companies.
This company growth mirrors the huge growth of the API industry: according to ProgrammableWeb, the number of public APIs has grown from just over 5,000 in January 2012 to a current count of nearly 16,000.
“We created Postman to address issues that I confronted personally as a developer, and our overwhelming market acceptance shows that this was a critical need,” commented Abhinav Asthana, CEO and co-founder of Postman. “The need for Postman in an API developer’s workflow will only grow as this market expands.”
Postman provides free apps for Chrome, Mac and Windows, available for download on the Postman website. Postman’s paid product, Postman Cloud, is a subscription service that provides additional collaboration, testing and documentation tools for both small and large development teams.
