API - v2

For more customizable and technical solutions, we offer an easy-to-use API to provide job, company and post listings. This API is publicly available to other companies. If you have any issues with the API, you can reach us at api@themuse.com.

By using this API, you agree to the terms and conditions.



The API always returns JSON.

Status Codes

Four different status codes may be returned:

  • 200: The request was successful.
  • 400: An error occurred in your request.
  • 403: The request was forbidden - usually because you hit a rate limit.
  • 404: The resource could not be found.

Rate Limits

The following rate limits apply:

  • You can register your app and use the provided API key by passing it in as the query parameter api_key. This will allow you to make up to 3600 requests per hour.
  • If you don't register your app and provide an api_key query parameter, you're limited to 500 requests per hour.

To know where you are relative to the limit, these HTTP headers will be returned with every response:

  • X-RateLimit-Remaining: How many requests you can still make at this time
  • X-RateLimit-Limit: The total number of requests you're allowed to make
  • X-RateLimit-Reset: Seconds remaining before the rate limit resets

Error Responses

If an error occurs, you'll get a response body like this:

"code": 400,
"error", "An error message"

code contains the HTTP status code. error contains an error message.

Paginated Listings

Some endpoints return paginated lists in a standard format, like so:

"page_count": 5,
"page": 0,
"results": [...]

These endpoints require a page query parameter, which should be an integer. In the response body, page specifies this value. page_count specifies how many pages there are total. results is an array that contains the items in the page. A full page will contain 20 results. The last page may return less than 20 results. Requests with an out of range page value will return 0 results.
