Sterling Chin

Engineering Manager

As an Engineering Manager at Postman, I lead various initiatives in Labs, the R&D arm of the company. I have over 3 years of experience in building and launching AI-powered tools that help developers and businesses in their API journey.

Some of the initiatives I have spearheaded include the GA releases of gRPC, GraphQL, Postman Flows, and Postbot. These products enable users to create, test, and manage complex API workflows with ease and efficiency. I also oversee the GTM efforts, roadmap development, and cross-functional collaboration for all of our initiatives, ensuring alignment with Labs' business goals and objectives. My passion is to drive adoption and awareness for our innovative solutions, and I have worked with marketing, developer relations, and customer service teams to create targeted campaigns and educational materials.
