It's been busy recently on API Jobs, the dedicated job board for API-focused professionals I built a couple months ago. The site features the best jobs building APIs, integrating them, or working at companies whose primary service is an API. Each week I'll be bringing you an overview of the newest featured listings on the site.

"Your job is to make building applications on our platforms easy and enjoyable.

"SoundHound delights millions of users every day with its famously fast music and voice recognition apps, and is winning awards and praise along the way.

You'll be right in the middle of all the action, with hands-on ownership of our API, enabling our mobile apps (and third parties) to access our search systems, content, and features."

"We’re looking for someone to own the developer product experience. This role would manage our developer tools, communication channels (site, forums, announcements, support), and design of our APIs. As part of our platform team, you’ll also help represent foursquare at hackathons and in meetings with partners.
You should be a hacker who communicates well. We want someone who enjoys interacting with people and is passionate about APIs. We’re still a small team, so expect to work independently, make hard calls, and do what it takes to get things done."
