As the creators of well-loved open-source API tools for the terminal, we’re on a mission to make APIs simple and intuitive for everyone—CLI-lovers and beyond. We’re building a platform that will solve problems that humans encounter throughout the entire API lifecycle, starting with a web and desktop version of HTTPie for API testing. We’ve raised a $6.5M Seed Round lead by Coatue, and now we’re building out our founding Engineering & Product Team—that’s where you come in.
