Who We Are
Cobalt (cobalt.io) is a fast-growing and globally distributed cybersecurity start-up with hubs in San Francisco, Boston, and Berlin. We connect global security talent with businesses and their users by providing Penetration Testing as a Service via the Cobalt technology platform. We have Scandinavian roots, an American base and a global outlook. Our team is characterized by a fun, fast-paced and collaborative culture based on individual responsibility and ownership.
All organizations need security testing for their software and we are building the world’s largest and smartest pentest management platform to help solve this challenge at scale.
As Product Manager for our Customer Experience team you will drive the definition, development, adoption and usage of our Cobalt application for our customers via integrations with tools that matter in the security workflow. You will take ownership in defining what the Cobalt Integrations Strategy should be.
You will merge attention to detail with the ability to understand and align business objectives, while working collaboratively with cross-functional teams to drive customer insights and inputs directly into the development process. You will work closely with our other Customer Experience and Pentester Experience teams.
