Fully flexible hours
Tyk is on a mission to connect every system in the world. We’ve started by building an API Management platform.
Tyk's API Management Platform was established in 2014 and is helping to drive the connected world and power new products and services. We’re changing the way that organisations connect any number of their systems and services. Whether internal, external, public or highly encrypted systems, Tyk helps businesses drive value across the retail, finance, telecoms, healthcare, or media industries (to name just a few!)
If you’ve banked online, used an app to check the news, or perhaps even driven a connected car, API, and by extension, Tyk, make that possible. Founded in 2015 with offices in London, Atlanta and Singapore, we have thousands of users of our B2B platform across the globe. Brands using Tyk range from Audi, Dominos, Starbucks, to the Financial Times, RBS and Societe Generale. We have a varied user base hailing from every continent – even Antarctica.
Flexible working approach
From the beginning, Tyk has been a flexible employer with a remote-first approach.
When Tyk was established, our founders realised that they would be in completely different time zones, raising young families, and decided from the outset that Tyk would be a flexible, fully remote company. You can work from wherever suits you, as long as you can attend your meetings with customers and colleagues. As long as you're happy, we are too!
For staff that want to connect or work in person, we have dog friendly offices open and available in London, Atlanta and Singapore.
Scoring against our flexibility index (1 = not at all flexible, 100 = couldn’t be more flexible, 51 is average) using a number of parameters to assess flexibility such as working from home, hours, frequency of travel, benefits, etc.
Scoring against our employee perception index (1 = not seen as flexible, 100 = couldn’t be happier with the flexibility, 51 is average) using a number of more emotional / perception based questions to understand whether employees feel supported and offered what they want. The areas we cover are work-life balance / managerial support / flexible benefits / working environment / and many others.
"This is the first company where I really got what was promised in terms of flexibility. The leadership team does not care where I work from, so I can hop on a plane and work from a Portuguese beach if I want to. Or from a Swiss Alps resort! I get unlimited days off which allows me to focus on work, but also, focus on my family if I need to, even on short notice. If I need to take a break during the day, I just let my colleagues know and finish my tasks afterwards. It's exactly as it was advertised and it's great."
