Every company and every developer spends too much time writing code to solve problems that they shouldn’t be solving. This can be anything from verifying emails or phone numbers to geolocating and enriching users to converting files and scraping sites. These are easy to solve poorly, but very difficult to solve well.
Abstract’s mission is to solve these critical but undifferentiated tasks and make them available via API.This allows developers to spend more time working on things that are more interesting, important, and impactful for them and their businesses.
What started as a few developers scratching their own itch has grown into a company serving thousands of teams in over 100 countries. Everyone from startups and side projects to public companies and critical infrastructure like financial institutions and airlines run on Abstract’s products.
