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. Accepting just 5% of applicants, the Core boasts over 400 closely vetted and highly skilled testers who jointly conduct thousands of tests each year.

Our award-winning, fully remote team is committed to helping agile businesses remediate risk quickly and innovate securely. Today, over 1,000 customers use Cobalt to run pentests on demand via Pentest as a Service, AKA PtaaS, a space which Cobalt pioneered (you could even say we wrote the book on it) and continues to lead.

  • Identify and make recommendations for improvements around process, efficiency and productivity of the business development team
  • Align with enablement, sales, and marketing teams to build a curriculum for business development reps across onboarding, sales trainings, solutions and industry education and role acumen

  • Experience working in and building sales teams
  • Proficient in CRM systems (i.e. Salesforce) and Sales Engagement Platforms (i.e. Salesloft, Outreach, etc)

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

First we assess the flexibility options Cobalt provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure Cobalt is as flexible as they say they are. 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.
