Who We Are

Cobalt.io is a rapidly expanding, remote-first cybersecurity start-up with headquarters in San Francisco, Boston & Berlin. We leverage global pentesters to help secure companies and their users through our Pentest as a Service platform. We have Scandinavian roots, an American base, and a global outlook. Our environment is characterized by a fun, fast-paced and collaborative culture based on individual responsibility and ownership, where everyone’s opinions matter.

Description

Today, Cobalt helps secure hundreds of leading B2B companies (GoDaddy, HubSpot) by connecting them with on-demand pentesting experts. The application brings both sides together to identify, triage and fix vulnerabilities. Seven years and 20K commits later, our technology has been battle tested by thousands of users.

What’s next? Cobalt is building an Integrations team to help solidify our status as a world-class security platform. As a Software Engineer on this team, you’ll help build Cobalt’s API and establish Cobalt as part of the larger, connected SDLC and security tooling ecosystem. You’ll work collaboratively with product managers and designers to drive the implementation and release of major features, embracing best practices for writing well-tested, well-organized code.
