Business Technology Consulting We understand your business to make technology a strategic asset
not just an expense.

IT Outsourcing our #1 request from our clients. Full time employees are expensive. Why incur the overhead when you can have someone dedicated to your needs with the IT resources of an entire company rather than a one person IT department? You spend less and get more value, only using IT services for what you really need.


Cobaltix can troubleshoot network performance issues. We design and build or rebuild networks from the ground up. From routers to cabling to firewalls and switches, we have the expertise you want. We are also experienced in moving networks and data center build-outs.

Security Compliance

Cobaltix conducts vulnerability assessments of our clients networks using the latest software technologies. We assist clients with security policy writing, audit preparation and are experienced in SEC, FDIC, and FINRA audits. WebApp testing is also conducted for our clients with public facing web applications to detect any known vulnerabilities.

Cobaltix implements the best backup and recovery solutions available today for your business.

Movie studio takeover

A couple of years ago, one of our clients made an investment. They bought 51% of a movie studio (sorry, we can't say which one). About 6 months after the money changed hands, our client managed to partner with Sony, who then showed interest in acquiring the [...]Read more


Computerizing a factory

One of our clients owns a manufacturing company that makes products that you likely see almost every day. They make the bags that fruit and vegetables come in, including printing all of the artwork on the bags. It is a lot more complex than it might seem-for example, just [...]Read more

Our Work Perspective

At Cobaltix, we work hard. We love our work, and our peers. The technology is cutting edge and challenges each of us to learn every day. Even better, when we really nail a tough problem and come up with an elegant and simple solution (which we do often), not only do other engineers get it, but our clients get it, and appreciate us for it.

We like our clients-they are smart-they get it. We know that every single engineer has earned the respect given to Cobaltix.

Free Lunch

Sometimes we drink from the fire hose. There's no free lunch when it comes to learning new technologies, and other people can't learn it for you (actually, we have free lunch at a deli across the street every day (when in the office), and we not only provide targeted and current training, but also incredible mentoring, too). Quite simply--this isn't the place for you if your goal is to be a seat-filler.

Unique Perks

The back massages at meetings are a nice perk, and the free Amazon Prime is just something nice to have-something that shows that the company listens and values us. The thousand-dollar tech stipend makes it so that no one ever has to ask for a book or a gadget-the company just assumes you deserve it. Apart from these perks, we also offer: Orthodontia, Lasik, Pet Insurance Discounts, Commuter Benefits, Dry Cleaning. We annually poll our employees about the perks that are of interest to our team members.

Team Outings

Even the annual ski trip, Giants' games, bowling, rafting, BBQ, dinners and other outings are just icing on the cake. Our annual weekend houseboating trip? LEGENDARY! There are lots of corporate jobs that have great benefits (and our pay and benefits are definitely excellent), but we respect and like our people. We find most employees are also our friends and we enjoy spending time together.

Pay It Forward



Over the past 7 years, we've continued to have these hard-working, great kids at our office- many have now moved on to college. What is more, our clients and friends have started working with ICA as well. We've also continued to help ICA do great things to improve the technology at the school. Our goal is to make the school competitive with any school in the Bay Area, at a technology level. One of our favorite interns (Paulina) will soon be completing her pre-med [...]Read more

The "exhibits" are fun and challenging for kids, and encourage them to develop both their cognitive and motor skills in unique and interesting ways. When their IT person was no longer able to handle their technology, they put [...]Read more



In mid-July, 2014, Steve was introduced by email to Jen. Jen did "something with photography and Haiti." Steve thought it might be interesting for his daughter to hear about it, so he agreed to meet for coffee, and brought her along. Jen also brought Guy (her husband, who spoke to Annika in French the whole time), and in less than an hour Jen and Guy had Steve and Annika both mesmerized with stories of Zanmi Lakay and how much good could be done in Jacmel, Haiti.
