Our inclusion commitment
We are committed to our diverse colleagues and will continue celebrating individuality and talents at Tyk. We want to build an inclusive working environment for everyone to thrive across the business and to do this, Tyk will become more diligent across all of the work we do and use data to drive more mindful decisions that will help to create positive impact and change.
We will use this page to map out our demographics and the diversity of our team and use this to openly track those changes over time.
By measuring and sharing this information, our current teams, future Tyklings and our Clients will have a better understanding of who we are, and ensure we have the data needed to deliver real and lasting change on our policies, systems and ways of working to improve the way we build, develop and lead our teams.
Our gender split
We have 74% (56) male and 26% (19) females in the business.
Our leadership split
We have 20 managers and leaders at Tyk, with 27% (15) of the male population working as managers and 26% (5) of the female population as managers.
We work in 26 countries around the world with our people working from their hometowns, being nomads or living away from home, with some clustering around our three sales offices. It is important to note our data here is nationality and not ethnicity or race due to the information we have at this time, we will be adding to this data as we gather it over the coming months.
Who wants to work with us?
Tyk aims to be an equal opportunities employer and we are determined to ensure that no applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of gender, age, disability, religion, belief, sexual orientation, marital status, or race.
We are a disability confident committed certified employer through the Disability Confident Campaign and want to promote a higher level of understanding and flexibility when working with talented individuals with disabilities.

My faith is the most important thing for me – I’m Muslim – and I believe that work shouldn’t interfere with your beliefs. Tyk is very supportive on this topic
