Tyk was born out of necessity, since in 2014, there was only one open source API gateway, and SOA was all the rage. In the words of Martin, dev-founder of Tyk, having tried all the options available “This shouldn’t be so damned expensive or complex. Screw you guys, I’m building my own API management platform, but this time with blackjack and whisky.” The resulting Tyk Open Source API Gateway has now been installed by 10,000’s of businesses. Our fantastic team of engineers, collaborating with the open source community, operating from our offices in London and Singapore, mean that Tyk is now deployed into some of the worlds largest enterprises and trusted with mission critical systems in highly regulated industries. Tyk doesn’t do SanFran offices, VC funding or change consultants. Tyk does do engineering. Powerful, performant and finely tooled engineering you can trust. We might still be waiting for the blackjack and whisky, but now, like our software, our commercials are open, immediate, fair and affordable.
