Catalyte uses the power of data analytics to discover, train and advance software engineers that we deploy through a variety of software and services models. We directly tackle the growing need for software developer talent by expanding the supply of software engineers, particularly those from populations that have historically been overlooked and under-represented in the tech industry. We believe that while innate tech talent is abundant and distributed, opportunities to enter the industry are not.

Through the Catalyte Platform, we can scalably recruit, develop, and deploy onshore software talent cost-effectively and with consistent quality. We have developed core competencies around capturing and ingesting data throughout the talent development lifecycle, and using these insights to accelerate training and upskilling of our people. Headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland, Catalyte has a national footprint and serves medium-sized commercial enterprise, IT services, and Fortune 1000 customers across the United States.
