We're on a mission to create full control over finding and offering short term jobs.

Our Story

We created Catapult because we've been on both sides of the hiring equation and know how painful it can be.

We're an ambitious team of entrepreneurs, developers and hiring specialists on a mission to build nothing less than the world's best platform to find and offer short term jobs. In a highly competitive market with new players on the rise we set out to be on the forefront of creating the future of employment. We won't stop until we've achieved this dream!

The team

Steffen Wulff Petersen

Steffen Wulff is one of the founders, he provides the level headed direction to both the company and his Rammstein tribute barber shop quartet. Loves drinking vinegar from a teacup and highly polished shoes.

Oli Johnson

Oli Johnson is one of the founders, is an excellent communicator, but only through the art of interpretive dance or email. His proudest moment is every morning when he has finished styling his hair.

Ben Dixon
Cofounder & CTO

Ben Dixon is the technical founder who’s self proclaimed highest moment was winning a look-a-like contest as a character from Lord of the Rings - though he refuses to admit which one. A cereal polygamist he has a different breakfast every day.

Pete Hykin
Business Development

Pete Hykin heads the company mime troupe. He’s efficient, ruthless and tactical. But only at connect four. Loves puppies and wearing slippers in the office. Owns a complete set of signed High school musical movies.

Jette Schaffran
Business Development

Jette makes all of her own clothes, with mixed success. Sneezes frequently. Cannot be fed after midnight and must be kept away from sunlight. Likes to sing.

James White

James is a developer. Not much else is known about this daredevil of a man, who in October of this year plans to jump the Snake River canyon in Idaho.

Kevin Edwards

Kevin Edwards is part of the development team. He spends his days grimacing at his screen, his lunch and the people around him. Is deeply allergic to criticism and onions. He is very proud of his collection of unusual moulds.

Matus Holec

Matus is a developer. He's scared of spiders.

Tom Chinery

Tom is a developer. His claim to fame is that he held the record for the largest matchstick cathedral in the world. Measuring over 7ft tall, the record stood for a little over an hour before his best friend Colin finished a 19ft version. They're still not speaking.

Marion De Najar
Key Accounts

Marion manages catapult operations with the dignity and grace one would not expect from someone who's first career was as a stage mind-reader. She is enthusiastically involved with the shoe-horn collectors guild and devised her own star sign: Caseusian - the sign for which is a disturbing mix of animal parts and pine cones.

Dimitris Kakkavas

Dimitris is a straight shooter with middle management written all over him. He can speak 15 languages, nearly all of which he invented, including, he claims; Welsh. His proudest moment was when he completed Mario World 3 without dying.

Georgina Kennedy

Gerogina's highest claim is that she once lifted the corner of the Eiffel Tower when a Crepe seller got their apron strings trapped underneath. As a thank you the Crepe seller gave Georgina 3 magic beans which turned out to be just regular beans.

Kanisha Patel

Kanisha found herself in Punxatawny, Pennsylvania on February 2nd and had to endure living the same day again and again until she one day woke to find that she was a grown up played by Tom Hanks. It was experiences like these that have made her into a strong and effective team member.

Nick Bradley

Nick grew up equidistant between London and Norwich. He is an aspiring street performer who is only held back by crippling self doubt, agoraphobia and ability. He is a skilled competitive dog groomer, with nearly two ribbons to his name.

Molly Vester-Hodgson

Molly is the great grand-daughter of Sir Oscar Hiddlesthorpe, they great adventurer, philanthropist and Phrenologist. Molly has very firmly followed in her great-grandfathers footsteps of adventure, though not literally - his footsteps ended abruptly in Indonesia while searching for the fountain of youth.

Aleksandra Forgszewska

Once missed a meeting at the top of the Empire State building with a famous film star because she was too busy building a baseball pitch in some corn fields. Is a tallented quizmaster.

Deniz Kavak

Deniz spent much his youth swimming around Amity Island with a cardboard shark fin strapped to his back. His interests include stamp collecting, fossicking and investment banking merger deals.

Georgia Doyle

Georgia found the Arc of the Covenant buried in North Africa when she fell into an old tomb filled with snakes. She can play any musical instrument as long as it's painted yellow. Fond of marshmallow.

Yasmin Desai

Yas survived for three years on Mars after a storm left her stranded with nothing more than exactly everything she needed to survive. Seemingly unaffected by the exposure to low gravity and high radiation Yas returned to a simple life of exchanging money for the teeth of sleeping children. Which is normal apparently.

Adelaide White

When asked to list her top five skills, Adelaide simply replied with "I am Batman." While it seems unlikely, we've seen no evidence to the contrary.

Anais Chetrit

We don't know who this is.

Subeida Ahmed

Subeida joins Catapult after finishing her studies at a magical school for wizards where she was assessed by a talking hat. Proudly flies the Unseen University colours of Octarine and Infra-black. Eats Muggles for breakfast (a type of raisin filled cornflake).
