Enabling internal teams to use and create useful APIs
George Mitry co-founded the Discover® API program and is responsible for the API Center for Enablement. A passionate champion of APIs, George has built four teams of engineers to institute the API product family of internal APIs, external APIs, the infrastructure API platform, and API support. The purpose of this product area is to manage API discoverability, usability, inventory, and security.
The program has grown and continues to provide a well-organized internal API catalog which keeps getting better every day to support our business and our customers. His passion to help every product team succeed in their journey to become API-enabled is evident in his team's success.
"Discover is one of the best places to work in technology," says George. "I engage every day with technologies like cloud, containers, service mesh, APIs, CI/CD pipelines, and more. It's an exciting time to be working on distributed architecture and being able to easily embrace full-stack technologies to compose solutions faster than ever."
Discover has a healthy culture of respect, inclusion, and excellence. The unique culture at Discover strikes the right balance of the stability of a global company with a startup vibe that is refreshing and exciting every day.

Growing to love math and having the passion to apply it in real-life applications, it didn't cross my mind to be doing anything else but engineering. I have always been fascinated by computer science and especially its life applications to build interactive products.
