Catalyst has been dedicated to using the world’s best open source software and tools to deliver robust IT solutions for our clients.

Along with our passion for open source, we are a company that is committed to equal opportunities for all, regardless of individual characteristics such as gender, age, or ethnicity. Our hiring processes reflect our diversity policy which you can read in full here: https://www.catalyst.net.nz/content/catalyst-diversity-policy.

Catalyst is a global organisation and we hire people across an array of professional fields;  developers, project managers, system administrators and people who just help the business to keep running  and growing. The common thing we all share is a belief in the importance of free and open source software and in a commitment to doing great work for our clients and the communities we work in. Do you want to work in a great company with a firm belief in open source culture? Have a look at our website, the work we do and the things we value and if you're interested, send us your application!

If you're looking for a developer role specifically (as many applicants are), some of the skills we look for include, but are not limited to the following:

  • A good understanding of source control systems (ideally git)  
  • The ability to work with some direction and be prepared to switch context/projects if and when required  
  • A good level of written communication - our developers and other technical staff liaise directly with our clients
  • The confidence and ability to discuss requirements with clients and colleagues  
  • A passion for open source approaches to software creation  
  • The wisdom to ask for help when needed!

Tip: Include references to any publicly available open source work, e.g. 'I have contributed 30 patches to the example project, which  are available through http://repo.or.cz/w/example.git'
