The Cobalt Sign Team
We are an app development company based in Timisoara, focusing on developing apps on iOS, Android & Windows.
Here at Cobalt Sign, we work together with our clients on their apps, starting from just an idea to product launch. We like to keep it simple & professional, having a good time along the way.
We believe that passion, hard work, pixel-perfect design and organized communication lead to a great product.
Passion Changes Everything
Oana & Arthur Csertus are both software engineers passionate about mobile, technology, tea and travel.
Throughout the years, they received numerous awards at international mobile development contests. In 2011 they decided to focus on app development and start their own company in the heart of Timisoara.
A Place for Our Team
The Zen Room
We value team spirit, curiosity and authenticity. From time to time, we come together and discuss our ideas in the Zen Room.
Usually, we gather to review sprints & code. But, we also relax, find inspiration for our apps and occasionally enjoy a cup of tea.
About Our Work Ethic
Authentic, agile, open & reliable describe our work ethic. We work with enthusiasm & attention to detail to develop good software.
About Our Workflow
We work best with Slack, JIRA, Bitbucket and Confluence by Atlassian. Occasionally, for fun ideas and office projects, we also use Trello.
Basecamp and Asana are our best friends to keep all the projects clean, well-organized and transparent for our customers.
Giving Back to the Community
Hello App is an initiative started by Cobalt Sign in 2014, through which we organize free mobile app development workshops for students.
Hello App has reached its 6th edition. Read more about the workshops and stay tuned for future editions!
