Or Weis has been a programmer or engineer since the age of 5. He started playing with DOS commands super early in his life. He made a significant leap in his professional skills when he was joined the IDF, as a reverse engineer. Post that, he worked for a startup to build containers (before they were commonplace), followed by co-founding Rookout, a company who defined the production debugging space. You might recognize that name, as I interviewed his co-founder, Liran, on a recent episode. Outside of tech, he is married to another software engineer, and dabbles in writing science fiction. He hopes to publish one day soon. Or hopes to eventually write a book that overlaps with his professional interests as well, kind of like the Phoenix Project.
While he was building his startups, Or quickly found himself annoyed with having to build and rebuild permission sets, or authorization, into every solution he made. Since he couldn’t find someone doing it, he decided to create a permissions solution… for the last time.
This is the creation story of Permit.
