An Insider's view of Catalyst Software

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We believe that people do their best work when they are able to maintain a healthy work-life balance - and we actually practice what we preach! We offer flexible working hours, generous parental leave and unlimited PTO, and have provided all employees with dedicated resources to ensure that they're taking care of their mental health as well.

Jessica

VP of People & Places

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The most joy I get from Sales is being able to help someone overcome a challenge, & that’s what we’re doing for companies. Many of them need a streamlined way to manage their customers. They may have a process, but it’s inefficient. They may have a health score, but it’s not data-driven. Offering a solution that solves for this is very fulfilling.

Wes

Sales Development Representative

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

-Monthly AMA: A forum where the team can ask me anything, personal or professional. Nothing is off-limits!
-1:1s every 60 days (min): Dedicated 1:1 time for IC’s + me to build deeper personal relationships
-“Anytime you need” policy: The team knows that I am ALWAYS here to help; I welcome the opportunity to connect with them outside of the above

Syd

Head of Customer Success

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I love working for an org in which all cross-functional stakeholders recognize the importance of recruitment - every hire is viewed as crucial! Members of each interview team invest a ton of time into ensuring that all candidates have an exceptional interview experience. They also dedicate significant energy into making holistic hiring decisions.
