A major software and media company with high standards needed to source new software development talent within a competitive market.


Catalyte’s sourcing model and apprenticeship identified and upskilled key talent that met the client’s exacting requirements. Six apprentices quickly integrated into IT teams across the client’s diverse range of business units, where they worked on a variety of internal and public-facing applications.

An international software and media company sought a new partner to deliver qualified software developers who could assimilate seamlessly into existing on-site teams supporting internal and public-facing web applications. With a premier reputation in its industry, the company had extremely high standards for all workers, including talent from nontraditional backgrounds. Catalyte was able to source six apprentices who fulfilled the client’s desired profile, and who were also located within the competitive Washington, D.C. market.

Creating a more diverse workforce

Primarily reliant on traditional recruiting and hiring methods, the client came to Catalyte to identify a pipeline of diverse and untapped talent to fill its IT workforce in one of the nation’s most competitive tech markets. Catalyte discovered, developed and deployed six apprentices who fit the client’s ideal profile and tech stack competency, and whose interpersonal skills also passed rigorous client interview standards.

Innovating tech expertise across a variety of business units

With business units in many different sectors, the client needed tech talent that could adapt to its wide-ranging needs. Apprentices joined teams working on web apps for government, news and law sectors, for both public- and internal-facing platforms. One Catalyte developer received a public design credit on an innovative interactive article that helped the CMS team reimagine the potential for the framework.

Delivering a cost-effective workforce solution

Catalyte’s tech workforce displayed proven competence alongside colleagues recruited by traditional methods.
