Meet the Authors

We believe in creating value for customers on the basis of APIs. Applying the concept product management to API development is the crucial factor to build APIs that solve a relevant customer problem, scale, and are profitable. However, applying product management to create API-based products is not straightforward.

We met in 2015 and founded an API squad at the largest Swiss telecom company. Both of us have an entrepreneurial background, particularly in the startup scene.

We applied, invented, tested, and refined methods in practice to create API products. As a result, we defined an API Product Management methodology to create  API products, which we want to share with you.
