Who are Tyk?

Founded in London in 2015. We have many thousands of users of our B2B platform across the globe, our mission: to connect every system in the world.

The Challenge

We’ve spent the last 18 months setting a solid foundation for Tyk’s global marketing efforts: shouting from the rooftops as loud as we can; cultivating a growing and passionate Tyk community; and taking our open source mantra out on the road – from the Americas to Australia.

It’s now time to turn things up a notch, so we’re looking to recruit an additional marketing expert to focus on shaping, creating and promoting Tyk’s enterprise offering via global multichannel marketing campaigns. In addition, this role will support on day-to-day marketing activity in the APAC region, particularly events, content/collateral creation, partnership development, and market insight.

Whether it’s overseeing a global feature launch from concept creation through to impact measurement, organising a local event, or developing regional success stories to support our APAC sales team, you’ll play a huge part in helping our users find, use, and love Tyk.

This is a really exciting role that will make a clear, measurable difference to our users, and to the business’s growth. You’ll be the eyes and ears of the Tyk marketing team across APAC and we’re counting on you to champion the brand and brand values for our team, community and partners across the region.

What can you do with us?

We’re looking for a marketer who loves a mix of creative and commercial in their daily role: someone who is confident turning phrases, and then tracking their impact on the bottom line. You’ll enjoy cracking the conundrum of what makes our users tick, before applying it to a varied campaign of multiple parts crossing our product, consulting engineering and own marketing team. You’ll be an excellent communicator, who understands the importance of consistency in our voice, brand and message across varied channels and formats.

It’s also critical that you take the work you’re doing seriously, but not yourself, and that you are happy to roll your sleeves up to get the job done. Tyk hires people who are as comfortable running to the local supermarket to grab drinks for a last-minute community event as they are managing the concept, content, and implementation for the latest global Tyk release. We’re big on teamwork, not arrogance or politics.

In all of this you’ll be supported by a marketing team of marketers & designers, and will check in regularly with the Marketing Manager and Business Directors. We’ll work together to implement and refine our marketing strategy and execute promotional campaigns, content production, events, as well as the usual ad-hoc activities. We are a remote-first team though, so it’s vital that you have a keen sense of initiative and are confident to execute plans, assess options and make decisions.

Though the initial focal point of this role will be multichannel campaign management, this is a hands-on role with plenty of opportunities to grow and develop as we scale our APAC operation. Given the nature of the role, you may be required to travel for short periods infrequently for the first year.
