Why choose us?

We understand the importance of working together – collaboratively and collegially – to support your aspirations, share the risks and achieve your goals.  We’re a global team of talented open source technologists. We champion the freedom to innovate.


We get results

We help companies and governments generate economic and social opportunities.

We can achieve any required outcomes with any technology, for any type of business, in whatever way you want and at any scale. We have an impressive track record of tackling hard problems with innovative technology and business models.

We’re open source experts

What sets us apart is that we don’t just use open source – we get open source.

At Catalyst, free and open source is not just what we do – it's what we stand for.

We’re creative, collaborative thinkers and doers, solving complex business problems with smart technology solutions.

We also work with other open source contributors here in New Zealand and overseas to get the most out of the software we provide.

You’re in control

You’re in the driver’s seat every step of the way and have complete control of the finished product without any lock-in. From start to finish, we will be entirely open and transparent, sharing everything you want to know.

We’re great to work with

You’ll be working with people throughout Catalyst who organise themselves to help you. We look after our employees and contribute back to the communities that support us.
