Open Source, Google Zanzibar-inspired permissions database

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.
