Who are Tyk?
We are a funded, early stage startup founded in 2015 based out of London. We have many thousands of users of our B2B platform across the globe, our mission: to connect every system in the world.
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. Our software needs to be fast, reliable, and robust, but more importantly, we need our software to be beautiful, and to delight our users. That’s where you come in…
What can you do with us?
We’re looking for a technically-minded product manager that can take the reigns of the Tyk product line and help the product team achieve our goals and to delight our users. You’ll help our team gather feedback about the quality of our product, design activities that we can do to improve the product and prioritise issues, tasks and features that go into our rolling release cycle. You’ll work closely with our solutions architects, account managers and product team to ensure that we are on time, on target and laser-focussed on delivering value to our users. You are an individual who appreciates the unity between Product, Technology and UX and have a proven track record of being both hands on and strategically minded. We need someone who likes to ask questions, listen and then deliver. You’ll join our Shoreditch based (yeah, we have exposed brick, hipster coffee, skinny jeans) team where you’ll be tasked with working to enhance our product range, troubleshooting client issues and build out the product roadmap. Our software needs to be fast, reliable, and robust, but more importantly, we need our software to be beautiful, and to delight our users. That’s where you come in…
