Making APIs simple and intuitive for those building the tools, apps and technologies of our time.


HTTPie is an early-stage startup building tools for developers and rethinking the human-to-API relationship from first principles. We recently raised a $6.5M Seed Round (from Coatue, Blossom Capital, Addition, the founders of Monzo, Intercom, and others). Now we’re building out our founding Engineering & Product Team—that’s where you come in!


We’re looking for a Senior Full-Stack Software Engineer to help us shape the future of API tools.

You’ll be a great addition to the team if you have

  • At least 5 years of software engineering experience
  • Experience with JavaScript and React
  • Solid understanding of modern coding, testing, debugging, and automation techniques
  • Solid understanding of HTTP and modern APIs
  • Passion for developer tools and sense for what makes them amazing
  • Passion for simplicity, delightful user experience, and an eye for design
  • Good sense for when to choose a robust vs. minimal solution to move fast
  • Ability to comfortably navigate the ladder of abstraction
  • Strong communication skills, especially in writing
  • Eagerness to learn and share

Bonus points

  • Experience with TypeScript, Next.js, Vercel, Electron/PWAs, WebAssembly

  • Experience with building distributed systems, AWS ecosystem, Terraform
  • Experience building a technology product

What we offer

  • Competitive salary and meaningful stock options
  • Educational and remote-setup budget
  • Unlimited growth potential
  • Work on a product that thousands of developers already love and trust
  • Being part of a diverse, open-minded, and open-hearted team

This is a unique opportunity to become an essential part of an ambitious early-stage startup.   Join @jakubroztocil and the team on this adventure and help shape the future of APIs.
