About Kobalt.io

Everyone deserves great cyber security. But it is harder than it needs to be. We're focused on changing that with our managed security platform and team of service professionals.

Promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion

Equity, diversity, and inclusion are inextricably linked to everything we do. At Kobalt.io, regardless of your background, age, origin, gender, sexual orientation, identity, or ability, we value and respect you for being you. Diversity brings innovation and is our greatest strength. Here at Kobalt.io, you will be treated fairly and respected. We build an inclusive culture, where you can bring your whole selves at work. We also evaluate the racial and ethnic composition of our leadership teams, aspiring to reflect the same diversity in our leadership teams as we see in our employees throughout the organization. At a time when the identity of many are under attack, I believe we need to lean in on love, understanding and support.

Who we are

We’re an experienced team of cyber security professionals and developers determined to make a dent. Our experience, combined with a fresh mindset, allow us to see the challenges in current approaches and seek out innovative ways to address them.


What we believe in

Not words on a poster – actions lived every day. We look for team members, clients, and partners who share our values so we can all move forward together.



Life at Kobalt.io

We’re excited about our mission and our people. We believe in continuous learning and development – you’ll learn from and with our team, share your expertise in lunch and learns for staff and external audiences, and we’ll all grow together. In fact, you probably don’t meet all the requirements listed, and that’s ok. As a team we’ll fill in the gaps, and help each other meet the challenges of our mission.

We believe in impact not hours – although we often scrum, whiteboard and bounce ideas off each other together in our offices downtown. Most of the time, we provide flexibility to work remote, so you can pick up the kids, go to the gym, or just enjoy a day working in your pjs. If you’re looking for a startup that demands 80 hour work weeks and provides non-stop Red Bull, we’re probably not a fit for you. We are an equal opportunity employer and value your diversity at our company.

We welcome you and celebrate differences in race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. We provide extended benefits and stock options. We believe if we take care of our team, pay them fairly, value their contribution, they will take care of our clients and we’ll all succeed together.
