Job Description

Who We Are

Cobalt was founded on the belief that pentesting can be better. Our pentests start in as little as 24 hours and integrate with modern development cycles thanks to the powerful combination of a SaaS platform coupled with an exclusive community of testers known as the Cobalt Core.

Our award-winning, fully remote team is committed to helping agile businesses remediate risk quickly and innovate securely.

The FlexScore® is the result of a rigorous 2-step verification of a company’s flexibility

Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.

We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.
