Do you dislike being tracked everywhere you go online? Does the thought of companies harvesting and selling your data make you angry? Help us bring back privacy online by giving advertisers an alternative!

Here at Kobler we have built a unique product where advertisers can deliver relevant ads without using personal data at all. Whenever an online newspaper article is read there is a real time auction where the winner gets to display their ads. Most of the participants in these auctions bid based on what they know about you, i.e., your personal data that they have gathered or bought from data harvesting companies. Our platform instead contextually couples ads to the article – if you’re reading an article about the best local takeout restaurants, we might place an ad from Foodora. This lets us place relevant ads without tracking of any kind.


About Kobler

Kobler has since our start in 2017 grown rapidly and we have more than 30 employees with offices in Oslo and Stockholm. We have developed our own, in-house contextual ad platform, ready to take on the established actors in the market, such as Google and Facebook. Since launching our platform in 2019 we’ve proven that contextual advertising works, and we’re now preparing to scale into new European markets.

As our Web Developer

You will be joining the team responsible for developing and maintaining all the customer touch points within Kobler. We strive to be a 100% self-served product, and that requires an intuitive and frictionless web application interface, and the bells and whistles that come with it, such as automated user follow-up, user communication, real-time feedback, and more. 

In addition to the Kobler web application, the customer facing team is tasked with creating tools and services that enable the customer to stay on top of their advertising campaigns at all times, e.g.:

  • Automated campaign highlight service (including article screenshots)

  • KPI reporting and metrics

We build all these things and more with the latest technology, powered by AWS cloud.
