An Insider's view of Caterpillar

What are some social events your company does?

Whether we’re working virtually or in-person, we are always looking for ways to have fun and grow as a team. Team dinners, coffee chats, ax throwing, chess club, and virtual happy hours are just a few of the activities we do to make work more fun and connect with colleagues around the world.

Madison

Recruiter

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

It’s amazing to be able to work in an architectural framework where we can negotiate between speed to market and a solid application – software that is well-built, well-designed, well-tested. I find this negotiation both challenging and exhilarating.

MacGregor

Lead Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

I’ve been with Caterpillar for 20 years now, and I’ve been lucky to work on teams that have different focuses. I’ve worked on everything from engineering applications to the latest and greatest digital technology applications.

Rakshan

Digital Product Manager

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

The team should be comfortable approaching me with any kind of issue — like improving a process, getting rid of unnecessary ceremonies or something else — and know that I will address it. I believe a manager should be the first line of defense against bugs and conflicting priorities, and my team needs to know that I have their back.

Stan

Software Engineering Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

Deep learning algorithms, popularized in the past five years, allow us to scan huge volumes of data from Caterpillar's fleet of connected engines and machines for unusual patterns. We're now able to make sophisticated predictions that wouldn’t have been possible 20 years ago.
