We’re looking for a DevOps Engineer that can work with our engineering team to deliver the next generation of the Tyk Cloud and Tyk Hybrid product line. You will have full responsibility over infrastructure, performance, architecture and design choices.

The Challege
Tyk is a high-performance API Gateway and Management platform that is used by fortune-500 companies and hip Silicon Valley startups alike. Tyk is an open source project, and we built it so that we could shape the way that people connect the world.

We offer a high-availability SaaS platform for users that don’t want the added infrastructure of a full on-premise deployment that powers thousands of mission critical APIs across the world.

Our infrastructure needs to be fast, reliable, and robust.

That’s where you come in…

– Are a team player
– Are business fluent in spoken and written English
– Want to work with new stack technologies
– Feel responsible for the quality of the products and features that you ship
– Participate in our product lifecycle, teach and learn from other engineers
– Collaborate across the company to define, design, build, and improve our product

Our Mission
The internet started by connecting mainframes, by the end of the 20th century 600m desktop and laptop computers exchanged email and web-traffic.

Today around 15 billion ‘things’ are connected to the internet, growing at a rate of a billion per year.

Tyk is committed to enabling interconnectivity between systems and between devices. We’ve started by building an API Management platform.

Our early stage team members will shape our business, there is an attractive package based on experience and performance that includes equity. Everyone has unlimited holiday.

You will work with a talented, and passionate team of industry experts, developing a cutting-edge product that is driving change and innovation within startups and household names alike.

We’re a distributed team. Work from our London office during induction, once you are up to speed, you can work from home, a cafe, your mums house, wherever you get your best work done, we’ll support you in making that happen.

The best software and hardware available – we are prime movers in “The New Stack”, our setup reflects that.

We are growing rapidly and are looking for team members keen to grab hold, accelerate that further and shape our future.
