Who are Tyk, and what do we do? 

The Tyk API Management platform is helping to drive the connected world and power new products and services. We’re changing the way that organisations connect their systems and services. Whether internal, external, public or highly encrypted systems, Tyk helps businesses drive value across multiple industries. If you’ve banked online, used an app to check the news, or even driven a connected car, API’s, and by extension, Tyk, make that possible. Founded in 2015 with offices in London, Atlanta and Singapore, we have many thousands of users of our B2B platform across the globe. Brands using Tyk range from Singapore Post to global organisations like the Financial Times, and Starbucks.

Our Mission

The internet started by connecting mainframes, by the end of the 20th century 600m desktop and laptop computers exchanged email and web-traffic. Today around 15 billion ‘things’ are connected to the internet, growing at a rate of a billion per year. Tyk are committed to enabling interconnectivity between systems and between devices. We’ve started by building an API Management platform.

Total flexibility, default remote, radical responsibility

We offer unlimited paid holidays and remote working from anywhere in the world, for everyone – for real. Why? Tyk was founded on the principle of doing things differently and offering flexibility and autonomy to our employees are two principles that, we believe, allow our employees to achieve their best results.

What can you do with us?

We are bolstering our Security team, and we are looking for a talented DevSecOps Engineer to join our DevOps team.

Developing and implementing new and innovative security frameworks is key, as is being a consultant to our squad model to build in security first thinking to our actions and our automations.

We want you to own our security policies, keeping them current and up to date, as well as owning the vulnerability list for product and being the key responder to our responsible disclosure programs.

  • Working with penetration testers and red teams
  • Supporting ISO 27001/SOC2 audits and advising on any new security accreditations which might be valuable to Tyk and its customers
  • Supporting customer facing issues on an ‘by exception’ basis
  • Work with the devolved product squads to develop and embed security first thinking in our software delivery lifecycle
  • Developing, championing and embedding best in class security frameworks and practices into our squads via a consultative approach
  • Creating, owning, and updating Tyk wide security policies, some of which are customer facing
  • Working closely with QA functions on developing solid security test frameworks and proactive penetration test schedules

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • IaaS providers (AWS, Azure, etc.)
  • IaC (tf, helm, etc.)
  • Container orchestration and development (k8s, rancher, etc.)
