Who are Tyk, and what do we do?

We’re changing the way that organisations connect any number of their systems and services.Whether internal, external, public or highly encrypted systems, Tyk helps businesses drive value across the retail, finance, telecoms, healthcare, or media industries (to name just a few!)

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 Audi, Dominos, Starbucks, to the Financial Times, RBS and Societe Generale. We have a varied user base hailing from every continent – even Antarctica.

Our values tell the story of Tyk – here’s how:

  • It’s ok to screw up!

We’ve found that it’s often the ‘stupid’ or unexpected ideas that turn out to be the successful ones – so try it, at least we can say we have!

  • The only stupid idea, is the untested one! 

It’s in our DNA – starting a business with founders 12 hours apart, giving our gateway away for free – sure, we did that, and we’d do it again!

  • Trust starts with you – make it count! 

Trust is a two-way street – instill it from day one!

  • Assume best intent! 

We have each other’s back – we’re all on the same team. Think before you speak or act.

  • Make things, better! 

Always try to leave things better than when you found them – change is constant, inevitable and embraced! Be that change we want to see.
