From their doc the url is https://api.wheniwork.com/2/login

Different response, 401 Unauthorized
{"error":"User login required for this resource.","code":1000}

404 might be a valid answer - for example if the information you are querying for is not found.

In specific with your sample I think you are missing in the Jason data the key: http://dev.wheniwork.com/#authentication

Revised Code--But still does not work.

string json = "{"
+ "\"username\" : \"username@email.com\","
+ "\"password\" : \"password1@\""
+ "}";
const string serviceURL = "https://api.wheniwork.com/login";

HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(serviceURL);
request.ContentType = "application/json; charset=utf-8"; //set the content type to JSON
            request.Method = "POST"; //make an HTTP POST
//request.Headers.Add("Authorization", "W-Key=key");
request.Headers.Add("W-Key", "key");

using (var streamWriter = new StreamWriter(request.GetRequestStream()))
{
//initiate the request
JavaScriptSerializer serializer = new JavaScriptSerializer();
var resToWrite = serializer.Deserialize<Dictionary<string, object>>(json);
streamWriter.Write(resToWrite);
streamWriter.Flush();
streamWriter.Close();
}

// Get the response.
            HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();                
            var streamReader = new StreamReader(response.GetResponseStream());                
            var result = streamReader.ReadToEnd();
