We build the tools companies need to provide performant and scalable authorization for their applications. We’re founded by 3 successful entrepreneurs with expertise in enterprise software, most recently as leaders at Red Hat. Jake and Joey met on the APIs team at Google in 2010. They went on to found Quay, where Jimmy joined as their first hire. Over the past decade, they’ve changed the landscape for building and deploying software.
Jake Moshenko is an engineering leader that has been building infrastructure tools and services for over 15 years for large companies and startups alike. Having previously struggled to keep up with customer permissions demands on products such as CoreOS’s Quay and Tectonic, he was searching for a better way to do application permissions.
Jimmy Zelinskie is the co-founder, chief product officer of authzed and one of the creators of SpiceDB. Prior to that, he built various staple cloud-native projects such as Quay, clair, the Operator Framework, and the Open Container Initiative while pioneering the cloud-native ecosystem at CoreOS and Red Hat.
