Busy week! We've got nine job openings this week in a variety of roles. Also notable this time around is the platform positions at companies not typically known for their API work: Visa, Bloomberg and Getty Images. As more and more companies continue to build an API strategy we'll continue to see even more of these types of openings.
With a successful IPO behind it, LinkedIn has its sight now set on bringing more developers to its fold. In April, we covered how LinkedIn is increasing its reach via widgets that you can plug into your site and expanding its Developer program. LinkedIn has added to that by announcing two additions to its LinkedIn API: searching Jobs and Companies.
Perhaps your most important online network of business contacts is now programmable. LinkedIn launched its API (our LinkedIn API profile), which allows developers to access a user's connections and anyone's profile data, in addition to several other features. Though some are saying "finally," it's clearly not too late for LinkedIn, who aims to be the professional networking platform.
