Who We Are
Cobalt provides the world's largest pentesting platform, delivering thousands of pentests per year. Cobalt's Pentest as a Service (PtaaS) platform is modernizing traditional pentesting. By combining a SaaS platform with an exclusive community of testers, we deliver the real-time insights you need to remediate risk quickly and innovate securely. We see the Pentest as a Service model as a first step in our vision to create a new interface to the security workforce. We have seen tremendous traction over the years and today we have 1000+ customers on Cobalt's platform, ranging in size from Fortune 50 companies to emerging tech start-ups.
We are remote-first with local hubs distributed across the US, Germany, and the UK. 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.
We have secured more than $50M in funding from a variety of top flight investors, led by Highland Europe. We are using our funding to expand global usage and continue development of the Cobalt platform, which pioneered the Penetration test as a Service (PtaaS) model.
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.
Our mission in the Growth Experience Team is to attract, acquire and activate new customers to the Cobalt service. Our team is composed of a core of Engineers, Product Manager and Product Designer while we have Data-, Marketing- and Sales-members just a Slack message away. We believe that the best outcomes originate from a team where everyone has a deep understanding of the problem, thus our engineers not only develop code but also collaborate in ideation, data analysis and hypothesis definition. This enables us to implement experiments at a high pace.
