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.

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.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our Employee Experience (EX) team at Cobalt. Our EX team is responsible for the application that is used by our Pentest Operations and Customer Success teams to connect our customers to our pentesting community. As the Product Designer for our EX team, you will work in partnership with Product and Engineering to deliver a world-class employee experience that will be utilized by Cobalt employees to provide amazing service to our pentest customers. You will lead all aspects of design from inception to implementation and beyond owning all aspects of design within the end-to-end product development cycle partnering closely with product and engineering every step of the way.
