Career at Paw — Senior Product Designer

Location

Remote in Europe or San Francisco, CA

Description

At Paw, our goal is to build the best possible productivity tools for developers, and in particular, for building and designing APIs (REST & GraphQL). Paw was launched as a Mac-only application and has recently become available on the Web, Windows and Linux. It allows team collaboration via a cloud-based syncing backend. We’re proud to have Airbnb, Apple, Mailchimp, MessageBird, and many other leading tech companies among our most active customers.

Earlier this year, we announced that we are joining forces with RapidAPI, the world’s largest API Marketplace serving the fastest-growing community of developers. RapidAPI is currently over two million strong and still growing, by helping them discover, connect to, and manage over 20,000 APIs. RapidAPI also has an enterprise platform - the RapidAPI Enterprise Hub - which companies use as a central repository for all of their engineering teams to manage, share, and collaborate on their APIs and Microservices. The RapidAPI Enterprise Hub is used by dozens of Fortune 500 Companies, tying into their critical integration and digital transformation initiatives.

During these challenging times, we’re continuing to grow as a company. RapidAPI has raised $60 million in a Series C investment round in April 2021 from investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Green Bay Ventures, and Microsoft Ventures (M12). With its headquarters located in the SOMA district of San Francisco, RapidAPI was founded by Iddo Gino in 2015. You’ll join the Paw team, which is fully distributed across Europe.
