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 the most feature-complete authorization software, SpiceDB, and enabling global production deployments with single and multi-tenant as-a-service products, SpiceDB Cloud and SpiceDB Dedicated.

We decided early on to protect employee equity and raise strategically; this allowed us to effectively deploy our $3.9M seed capital to build the most mature project in our space, garner credibility, and grow our open-source community. Now, with increasing user interest in commercial products supporting the deployment of SpiceDB, we’re ramping up the revenue organization to handle scale.

AuthZed is a fully remote company with employees across the US and Europe. We’re a hardworking group with a software-driven culture; even sales folks know how to code! We bring integrity to all our interactions and trust each other to make the right decisions.

We value:

  • Agency - we have the autonomy and resources needed to succeed.
  • Collaboration - we help each other tackle complex problems.
  • Open-Mindedness - we leave biases out of our ideas and thoughtfully consider challenges to them via alternate perspectives and solutions.
  • Diversity - we’re not interested in echo chambers.

If you’re a passionate, self-motivated, and ambitious individual who is excited about creating something from the ground up - we’d love to speak with you!
