What we believe

We believe the best results are produced through collaboration, integrating our knowledge and expertise with your industry experience. Once we intimately understand the cause of your problem we apply our focus to engineering the best possible solution.

We build applications focused on delivering results. Nobody understands your specific goals or hurdles better than you. Combining our clients’ business and customer insights with our creativity and technical expertise is a proven path to success.


A catalyst makes change happen. We think deeply about the challenges our clients ask us to solve, probing the variables creating difficulties, and the elements that can be manipulated to create better results. We figure stuff out. We are restless when it comes to applying new paradigms to how we approach our work. We are confident in who we are and what we do.


We are creatives. UI and code are our mediums. We act boldly to overcome barriers, and put aside egos to embrace learning when new evidence suggests a better way to do something. Evolution requires experimentation. The boundaries of technology are our inspiration for creativity; there to build around, through or over. We create with purpose, putting our creativity to work and delivering beyond expectations.


Catalyst is a group of people navigating life AND work, together. We choose to be real and always advocate for authenticity with each other and our clients. We embrace a culture which combines calm and crazy because that’s what life is like.

Meet the crew

We’re a high performance team combining a diverse array of skill sets and personalities. We enjoy what we do, and we love succeeding. We’re normal like that. We do share one exceptional characteristic: an obsession to deliver products that work.
