About Authzed

We’re pioneering open-source authorization solutions for scaling businesses tackling complex end-user permissions in zero-trust architectures. Our focus is on providing SpiceDB—the most mature open-source permissions database inspired by Google’s Zanzibar system—and building managed services that enable planet-scale production authorization services.

Our strategic approach to capital-raising has empowered us to efficiently utilize our $3.9M seed fund. We’ve developed SpiceDB, now the open source standard in authorization database technology, fortified our reputation as authorization experts, accelerated our open-source community growth, and are scaling revenue with robust enterprise products.

AuthZed is a fully remote company with employees across the US and Europe. We’re a hardworking group with a software-driven culture; even our sales team understands and loves our technology! We bring integrity to all our interactions, fostering confidence in decision making - trusting and respecting each voice on our team, every day.

Company Values

  • Agency
    • Everyone should have the capability, freedom, and confidence to bring about changes to our business and product. Organizational processes exist to clearly define our goals, but not restrict how progress is made.
  • Collaboration
    • Success is defined in various dimensions and no single person can be an expert in all of them. Without valuing the opinions of others, finding compromises, and sharing mutual trust and respect, you cannot arrive at the best possible solution.
  • Open-mindness
    • Without asking questions, testing assumptions, and questioning our pre-existing biases we risk operating within an echo-chamber. We celebrate the representation of diverse perspectives and backgrounds as a catalyst for creating an inclusive work environment that everyone can appreciate.

The Role

We're hiring an inspirational individual seeking to make all technology more secure by raising the bar for implementing robust authorization. This role is cross-functional within the organization, celebrating our victories, and empowering our community with the technology we create.

As a Developer Evangelist, you will be the public face of AuthZed to the developer community. You will attend events, give presentations, and generally engage with developers to broaden awareness and educate the world on our open-source projects and commercial products.

Your interaction with the developer community is a crucial component in our ability to meet users’ expectations and build software that people love. To that end, you will contribute to the product team by organizing the community's feature requests, ideas, and usage and generally acting as a proxy for the community's needs. Your efforts will be joined by the community team to focus on the community's long-term health and success.

Working closely with the marketing team, you will create and maintain high-quality, developer-facing written and video content with the goal of broadening awareness and easing onboarding to AuthZed’s products and software. You would also help the marketing team understand our users and how to effectively make them aware of AuthZed’s commercial offerings.

Ultimately, your mission is to make developer's lives easier by making robust authorization accessible.
