About the Team
Postman is one of the most widely used API platforms in the world. In our pursuit of ensuring our platform is as interoperable as possible we are regularly investing in a variety of core as well as community open source tooling projects. Actively developing and releasing open source tools via Github, as well as open-source API collections via public API workspaces. Providing a rich set of open source solutions that anyone can fork and put to work as part of their API operations, supporting anyone in the community.
Postman is continuing to expand our support of multiple API protocols and patterns and is looking for someone to join our Open Technologies team to lead our GraphQL effort. We are looking for someone who is passionate about GraphQL, has existing experience within the GraphQL community, and wants to help drive investment in GraphQL internally, but also drive adoption externally within the community.
