We are hiring our very first employee!

Are you a high-performing business developer seeking your next big adventure? Look no further – we're searching for our very first employee to help us skyrocket our tech startup to new heights!

Backed by an international venture capital firm, we're expanding our team to drive growth and sales. If you're an experienced business developer who thrives in a fast-paced startup environment, we'd love to hear from you.


About us

Kobbr is on a mission to lead craftsmen, such as electricians, painters and carpenters, into a data driven future.

Craftsmen are used to old and outdated software that requires several training days to master. We are building a product that our customers actually love to use and requires no training to get started.

Our approach sets us apart from traditional software companies in the industry. We prioritize integrating seamlessly with existing tools, rather than replacing them. Kobbr simplifies workflows and decreases manual tasks by offering a modern alternative to pen, paper, and Excel.

Since our software can be easily integrated with craftsmen’s existing software, it shortens our sales processes significantly and opens the opportunity for product-led growth.

Our goal is to develop an inclusive work atmosphere and assemble a varied team, as we encourage individuals from all different backgrounds to submit their applications and join our collective journey.
