What makes Catalytic a unique place to work at?
Catalytic is a great balance of culture. We have the energy, passion, and mission of a startup. But we also have the experience, network, and leadership of an established company. In business software, you're often building solutions that the end users hate but have to use "because management". That's not us. We're building software that supercharges users and automates boring stuff so that they can get back to doing the stuff they love. We work hard because we believe in what we're doing. And we have fun without trying too hard (you know what I'm talking about)

What are some of the toughest engineering problems Catalytic is facing now?
We as an industry have a lot of experience building webapps. Whether that's engineering best practices, design principles, UX, or what have you. But when it comes to conversational interfaces it's the Wild Wild West, and we at Catalytic get to be Will Smith.
Gabe Gorelick
Software Engineer at Catalytic since 2016
Our biggest engineering challenges are building the conversational UI for Pushbot, building a platform to support thousands of third-party integrations and building a recommendation engine to suggest optimizations to customer processes. And of course the overall challenge is to solve all the not-hard engineering problems in a way that doesn't make these hard problems any harder.
