Lob lands in the Top 20 APIs at the Postman Awards

Author Avatar

Big news from Lob: Our API was awarded a spot in the top 20 of the Postman API Network Awards this year, out of more than 100,000 APIs!

Postman is the world’s largest network of public APIs, and each year, they award the top APIs based on great developer experience and the highest usage.

Getting recognized by one of the most respected platforms in the tech world tells us that we’re doing something right. It’s validation that the tools we’re building are useful, dependable, and making your direct mail program a bit easier.

Our approach to building a better API

Developing an API that stands out in the crowded tech marketplace involves more than just good coding. It starts with understanding the real challenges developers face. From there, we crafted our API with a few key goals in mind:

  • Reliability: We make sure our API performs consistently under many conditions.
  • Ease of use: The API is designed to be intuitive, allowing developers to integrate it smoothly into their existing projects.
  • Comprehensive documentation: We created detailed, clear documentation and resources to help developers get started quickly and solve problems efficiently.

Our journey to the top 20 involved iterating our API based on the OpenAPI 3.0 specification, helping us standardize and streamline the developer experience. And, we focused along the way on a first-in-class user experience through rigorous UX research.

All of this hard work earned us a verified blue check Postman that means that you can trust our API to perform when you need it to. We take that seriously. 

Thank you for using our tools to build and create 

Your support is a reminder that thoughtful work resonates, and it motivates us to keep pushing the boundaries of what our API can do. Here’s to continuing our work together, and always striving to make it easier for your team to deliver results.

Let’s keep the good stuff coming.
