Who Are We?

Postman is the world’s leading collaboration platform for API development. Our app simplifies each step of the API building process and streamlines collaboration. More than 17 million developers and 500,000 organizations worldwide currently use Postman. We recently raised our Series-D at a $5.6 billion valuation.

Here's a timeline of Postman’s journey in becoming an API Platform.

The Opportunity.

The team works closely with the Product teams to build and expose APIs that enable delightful experiences for developers who build modern software for the API-first world. We’re a small team with members that learn from each other and iterate rapidly to make a large impact. Our APIs are written in Node.js, MySQL, Redis, and Linux deployed on the AWS Platform.

We are ideally looking to hire this role in Europe.

How We Operate.

Since we are a globally distributed team, we measure outcomes, not hours. We operate from a deep sense of our values and strive to build the best products for the entire developer community.
