September 8, 2021, AUSTIN, Texas -- Stoplight, the global API design company, announced its position as a market leader in the newly released G2 Fall 2021 Grid Report for API Design. Products in the Leader quadrant in the Grid® Report are rated highly by G2 users and have substantial Satisfaction and Market Presence scores.

API Design is the planning and architectural decisions you make when building an API, leading to a better user experience. Design maturity at an organization allows internal and external developers to more quickly and easily consume and use that organization’s APIs.

Stoplight received an overall score of 74 and is listed among two other leaders in API Design. Stoplight’s highest-rated features included: design management, access control, and visibility. In addition, Stoplight was recognized with a high level of satisfaction for ease of doing business with, quality of support, and ease of set-up.

We have made great strides in 2021 to scale and meet the demands of a rapidly growing industry, and our customers have shown they love our platform. It’s an exciting time to be a part of Stoplight and the API world,” shares Stoplight CEO, Steve Rodda.
