The Challenge

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

Our software is at the cutting edge of Enterprise Infrastructure, we have a distributed team of engineers, across time zones and disciplines, that’s where you come in…

What can you do with us ?

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).

You may start the day with a stand-up meeting with the team, and then work through individual tasks that either unblock the team, or ensure that they have what they need to keep going. You’ll will be reviewing the backlog, the timeline for the project and identifying whether delivery is at risk and ensuring that it is flagged.

We have very few projects that have strict deadlines, but we do not want endless projects, so you’ll be triaging and prioritising tasks, and ensuring that all stakeholders are informed of what they need to be doing and speaking to.

Ultimately the Senior PM will act as a “Whip”, or as the glue between team members to ensure that everything is running smoothly.

Essential Skills:

  • 6+ years in a project management role
  • Commercial awareness and depth of experience in multiple approaches and methodologies
  • Experience in recruiting and managing other PMs
  • Proven budget responsibility for projects
  • Experience in delivering complex software projects
