How does the company support your career growth?

Catalyst has played a huge role in my growth and development within the IT field. They’ve placed me in positions and roles that enabled me to learn on the job, along with my own initiative in studying for Salesforce courses to supplement and accelerate my growth. Catalyst has a range of staff members that have acted as mentors in guiding me to the next stages of growth in my career.

What is the primary reason you enjoy working for our company?

Catalyst’s culture and environment provide a strong sense of belonging and being valued. I’m trusted and encouraged to tackle roles, responsibilities, and assignments that interest and challenge me. My contributions are truly appreciated, and part of something bigger. I have the personal satisfaction of being part of visionary and industry leading technical solutions in the public sector.

How does mentorship affect the success of the company/How does it affect your growth?

Being a mentor is both one of the greatest responsibilities and the most rewarding of tasks. As someone who was mentored during multiple internships before graduating, I can definitively say the knowledge and experience gained were integral to my own personal growth during my transition from college to the workforce – I still use that knowledge to this day.

As a mentor, passing along my knowledge and experience to the newest generation of developers is one of the most rewarding experiences. At Catalyst, our interns work alongside us to tackle the same real-world challenges we solve for our customers. In doing this we not only provide our interns with the best experiences; this also contributes to our success since our interns bring a fresh perspective to our solutions.

Catalyst Benefits

When we say our people are the pulse of our organization, we mean it. At Catalyst, we are more than a team of developers, project managers and business analysts. We are a team composed of artists, writers, volunteers, climbers and music enthusiasts who all contribute to our work environment. Though each member of our team fills a role, any of us are happy to tell you we are not defined by our job titles. Working in small groups offers each of us the opportunity to branch out and take on multiple responsibilities. It also allows for us to consistently learn, grow and expand our own skill sets.

100% Employer paid Healthcare, Vision, Dental

Every year, Catalyst researches the best available options for Medical, Dental, Vision, Short-Term and Long-Term Disability, and Life Insurance to provide premium coverage at no cost to our team.
