API Craft

Welcome to API Craft. We <3 APIs.

Our standards are simple - we are a community of individual API practitioners who see building APIs as a craft.

We represent our own opinions, and not that of employers or anyone else.

This list is open to thoughtful posts from hiring managers who want great API thinkers and doers.

This list is not open to posts from vendors who are promoting their products.

Spamming recruiters will be banned immediately and their posts will be deleted.

Come on in, read, search for questions you may have about APIs, and then feel free to hop into the conversations.
