The Technology

Tyk is built in Go and AngularJS, uses Redis and MongoDB, and is deployed on almost anything: including cloud services (EC2, Azure), IaaS (Heroku, OpenShift), Docker (Mesosphere, Kubernetes and more) to bare-metal ARM-based microservers.

Tyk is used by clients running everything from shiny micro-service architectures, to sucky SOAP stuff they keep in the company museum.

As a result, we are pragmatists over technology choice, enjoy problem solving and want your involvement in shaping our future choices.
