Before joining Tyk I always heard of the phrase work-life balance but never really got to experience it. Since I have joined Tyk my life has changed. It now truly resembles what a work-life balance should be, and because of this flexibility I can be the best version of myself and help Tyk to achieve its goals.

Saved enough on my commute to buy a house! / Lost 2 stone at the gym (because I now have the time to go!) / I have a weird schedule where I’m most productive very early/very late – so it’s great to fit my hours around that

Flexible working at Tyk allows me to have small wins every day, whether it’s avoiding rush hour on the tube or getting to the gym when it’s nice and quiet. Knowing I can work flexibly throughout the day, wherever is most convenient, allows for all these seemingly small things to culminate into a proper life / work balance.
