Real humans, with real lives, doing real work
We want everyone at Tyk to feel a sense of connection and belonging, wherever they are in the world. That’s really important.
We want to provide an inclusive working environment where everyone can thrive. Yes, doing so delivers a whole range of business benefits, but our ultimate goal is to celebrate individuality and talent as part of our diverse, global workforce. And if that happens to make us amazingly productive and efficient, then we’ll happily celebrate that too.
Tyk is a diverse bunch of individuals from around the globe.
Our team includes over 30 different nationalities, residing in over 27 countries. Being fully remote, our people work from their hometowns, work from beaches or cafes or are using this opportunity to explore the world at their own pace. We also have some clustering around our offices in London, Atlanta and Singapore.
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.
The 9-6 work shift doesn’t work very well for me, but at Tyk I can fix my working hours around the times I feel energised and get the work done then.
To the point
What are we doing to drive mindful decisions and create positive impact and change?
Firstly, a lot of thinking.
Our founders focus on our culture to the point of obsession. Seriously – they lay awake at night pondering what more they can do to make each and every Tykling feel valued and happy.
Secondly, we involve the whole company.
Culture is everyone’s work and each and every Tykling has a role to play in it. A diverse and inclusive organisation is something we’re achieving together, with a dedicated Culture Manager to help turn our thoughts into impactful strategies, practical initiatives and insightful measurements. Things like:
“One thing that is incredibly rare and which you can definitely see at Tyk is the freedom to be an agent of change.”

Enough talk – let’s look at some numbers
We consult with our Tyklings in various ways, from surveys to in-depth interviews – the latter are what have generated the quotes on this page.
In our December 2020 survey, we asked our Tyklings about how inclusive the organisation is and over 90% responded. We discovered that:

One of the coolest parts about Tyk is the freedom that they give you. It’s a unique culture. It’s a cool feeling for a family man like myself, as families don’t always fit with 9-5. At Tyk you can change your hours to fit around everything from doing the school run to watching a class play.
We’re encouraged to speak up, to take responsibility and to ask questions. Micro-management and top-down hierarchy aren’t really practised at Tyk.
We come from different countries, have different life experiences, different beliefs, different goals and different ideals. But we’re all human. We’re all capable of being kind, empathic, curious, collaborative and respectful. And so we are.
