About us

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.

The Founders

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.

About The Zen Room

Our Values

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 also to relax and find inspiration for our apps, all while having a perfect cup of tea.

About our Style

01. Values

Authentic, agile, open & reliable describe our work ethic. We work with enthusiasm & attention to detail to develop good software.

About our Workflow

02. Tools

We work best with JIRA, Bitbucket, Confluence and Hipchat by Atlassian. Occasionally, for fun ideas and office projects, we also use Trello.

About Communication

03. Agile

Basecamp and Asana are our best friends to keep all the projects clean, well-organized and transparent for our customers.

About Volunteering

Giving Back to the Community
