Our business is modelled after Tyk, like her our team are tencious, work smart, and deliver amazing results through teamwork.
We’re looking for a Go Developer that can work with our engineering team to deliver the next generation of the Tyk platform, both the open-source and the closed-source applications.
You’re not alone, you’ll work with our growing team of Backend and Frontend developers, QA engineers and designers. We’re growing quickly, so you can also help us hire and expand our product team.
Last but not least, we’re big believers in internal team development, which means you can help us train the next generation of developers through our graduate program through code reviews, pair programming and mentoring. Or take advantage of the learning opportunities available through our internal programmes.
You will be responsible for the reporting, delivery and quality of any given project or task, and building the team and project management function within Tyk. Projects will vary from single-shot, one-off projects to long-running cyclical product programmes.
You will be working with key stakeholders across the organisation, to help scope, cost and control delivery. You will also work with key stakeholders within your project, for example, the development team, and reporting to the business sponsor of the project (e.g. the CEO or the COO).
Junior Consulting Engineers work closely with more experienced team members, who provide them with the support necessary to succeed. Over time, as the junior Consulting Engineer’s experience and skillset grows, so does their autonomy, giving them the freedom to propose solutions architectures, create proofs of concept and drive conversations themselves. They will then also have the opportunity to talk at user groups and conferences.
In the Consulting Engineer role you will directly contribute to the product, be responsible for feature releases and be part of product discussions. The key difference from a core engineer being that a consulting engineer is client-facing.
As a Consulting Engineer you will play a vital part of the pre and post-sales process, providing the technical expertise to help potential customers understand how they can use Tyk to meet their API management needs.
You will take part in calls and meetings to discuss requirements, answer questions and provide recommendations. For complex scenarios, it may be necessary to propose a solution or create a proof of concept to satisfactorily demonstrate that the requirements can be met.
Some opportunities may be in conjunction with partners, which will require you to work with them to integrate Tyk into an overall solution.
Beyond this, you will work with other Consulting Engineers to enhance the assets available to support the discipline, as well as contribute to the product and supporting documentation.
