An Insider's view of Catch Co.

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Out of all of the things I do as Senior Content Manager at Catch Co, the most fun (and challenging) is creating content around Karl VonDibble. Karl is the official face of our company. With him being a larger-than-life character, it gives us an endless opportunity to create content around his hi-jinks. This can be both overwhelming and exciting.

I have the opportunity to work on high-impact projects, collaborate with senior leaders, and drive company culture – all while collaborating with team members across functions.
