Early in the effort, engineering will partner with product management to begin drafting a data standard and API that will power your product.
You are critical partners for this track. An open channel of communication will be established.
The data standard clearly defines the different types of information and messaging that can flow in and out of your API. It is a client-agnostic interface.
The API makes available all the capabilities of your platform. Unless other technical requirements are agreed upon, it will be a RESTFUL JSON API.
