Consulting Engineer

Telecommute · London, United Kingdom


In the Consulting Engineer role you will directly contribute to the product, be responsible for feature releases and be part of product discussions. The key difference from a core engineer being that a consulting engineer is client-facing.

As a Consulting Engineer you will play a vital part of the pre and post-sales process, providing the technical expertise to help potential customers understand how they can use Tyk to meet their API management needs.

You will take part in calls and meetings to discuss requirements, answer questions and provide recommendations. For complex scenarios, it may be necessary to propose a solution or create a proof of concept to satisfactorily demonstrate that the requirements can be met.

Some opportunities may be in conjunction with partners, which will require you to work with them to integrate Tyk into an overall solution.

Beyond this, you will work with other Consulting Engineers to enhance the assets available to support the discipline, as well as contribute to the product and supporting documentation.


As part of the role, you can expect to be doing most (if not all) of the following:


This role has a flexible location. Tyk has offices in London and Singapore, as well as employees working remotely all over the world. The role may occasionally require you to travel for meetings, onboarding sessions, conferences and company-wide get-togethers. When working remotely, it is important to have a reliable and performant internet connection which will enable you to take part in video conferencing.
