Company Overview

Catalyst is the world’s most intuitive Customer Success Platform (CSP), and was built by an experienced group of industry leaders. Our software integrates with all of the tools that CS teams are already using to provide one centralized view of customer data. Customer Success Managers can subsequently take the right actions to prevent churn, increase product adoption, and align the entire organization on a unified workflow to manage customers throughout their journey. Catalyst helps organizations turn Customer Success into a company-wide mission. 

Position Overview

As a Senior Frontend Engineer, you will skillfully build our UI/UX while fostering the engineering culture and process as an early employee. Our tech stack consists of Vue.js, Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, and Elasticsearch on AWS. If you thrive in an early startup environment or are simply looking for more ownership and the ability to make a significant impact, we would love to meet you.

What You’ll Do

  • Collaborate with Product Managers, designers, and engineers to build enterprise-ready products
  • Design and implement high performance, reliable, and scalable systems
  • Write clean, maintainable, and well-tested code
  • Participate in peer code and design reviews
  • Make pragmatic scoping and design decisions to optimize project timelines and minimize risk
  • Translate ambiguous business problems into actionable tasks
  • Provide mentorship through active pairing and coaching

What You’ll Need

  • 5+ years of Javascript experience developing enterprise web applications
  • Strong understanding of CSS pre-processing platforms, such as LESS and SASS
  • Demonstrated expertise in a major reactive web framework (React, Vue)
  • History with one of the major flux pattern implementations (Redux, Vuex)
  • Mastery of asynchronous request handling, REST architectures, partial page updates, and AJAX
  • Experience working in a test-driven development environment
  • Familiarity with Agile methodologies
  • Keen eye for strong UX and a history contributing to design systems
  • Experience with Webpack
  • Experience with Ruby on Rails and a willingness to traverse the full stack (preferred)
  • Experience with relational databases such as PostgreSQL (preferred)

Why You’ll Love Working Here!

  • Highly competitive compensation package, including equity - everyone has a stake in our growth
  • Comprehensive benefits, including 100% paid medical insurance coverage for you, your partner, and your dependents
  • Unlimited vacation policy, encouraging you to take the time you need - we trust you to strike the right work/life balance
  • Personal Seamless account, to be used for free daily lunches; catered team lunches twice per week 
  • Monthly team-building events (including game nights - Super Smash Brothers and Team Fortress 2, anyone?, trivia, and more!)

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.


Head of People & Places

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

It is arguably more important than ever for organizations to focus on retaining and growing existing business. Catalyst provides an intuitive, powerful solution that enables that. I love that we’re not just helping organizations to manage their business, but also empowering them to engage with their customers on a more meaningful level.


Senior Account Executive

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

As a product-centric seller, I focused most of my onboarding on becoming a platform expert. Once I started selling, my demos were hyper-customized to each prospect’s KPIs. The exec team noticed my passionate, creative approach to building tailored demos, which ultimately led to my transition from Sr. AE to Catalyst’s first Implementation Engineer.


Implementation Engineer

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

It’s most likely very similar to everyone else: 1:1s, Slack direct messages, Slack channels, and scheduled meetings. But what’s most important is always providing undivided attention when someone asks for time and following through on action items. If you don’t build that trust with your team, no amount of “open time” is meaningful.


Head of Product

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.
