Patrick Poulin

Founder & CEO

API Fortress

Patrick moved to NYC 10 years ago to pursue a career working on the Internet. Soon after he was managing the retail vertical for a company building the first mobile websites for over 75 major brands such as Tesco, Target, Macys, and MAC Cosmetics.

After a (thankfully) short stint in adtech, he became the API Evangelist for Getty Images. This is where he first recognized the problem of a lack of proper testing for APIs. That experience helped kick off the creation of API Fortress with his cofounder.

Patrick does not often write about himself in the third person, but when he does it is an awkward experience.
