Catalyte is a Baltimore, Maryland-based software engineering services company that identifies, trains, and places individuals into technology jobs. The company's workforce development model disregards the indicators of work experience and educational attainment in favor of artificial intelligence and predictive analytics.[1][2]


Following his Harvard Law School graduation in 1998, founder Mike Rosenbaum received an Irving. R. Kaufman Fellowship to support the first version of Catalyte's talent selection and team assembly.[3] Originally founded in Baltimore as the nonprofit Catalyst Associates Inc., this iteration failed, and was subsequently reestablished as a private entity.[4]

Headquartering in Baltimore's Otterbein neighborhood, Catalyte grew to over 800 employees, with satellite locations in Chicago, Denver, and Portland.[5]

In 2018, Catalyte acquired software development firm Surge and raised a $27 million Series A funding round.[6]

In 2019, Catalyte launched its first consumer product, Odyssey, a standardized platform to improve the technology workforces of other companies.[7]

In 2020, Catalyte launched ReTrainAmerica, a national exchange that connects American workers with retraining opportunities.[8] In late 2020, the city of Baltimore announced the launch of a new Technology and Software Development Fellowship program in partnership with Catalyte, with the ultimate goal of training more Baltimore-area residents in software skills. Baltimore Mayor Jack Young said the partnership was both an investment in the long-term health and economic wellbeing of Baltimore, as well as a pathway to jobs for more Baltimoreans.[9]

Current United States Secretary of Veterans Affairs Denis McDonough previously served as a member of Catalyte's Board of directors.[10]
