Atomic Accelerator

Do more with your first two years post-grad.

What's the Accelerator?

The Atomic Accelerator is an accelerated professional development program for newly-graduated developers who join Atomic Object each spring.

Why join the Accelerator?

You'll hit the ground running

This is not a glorified internship. You’ll join our team as a full-fledged Atom, with the same benefits, pay scale, and responsibilities as other Atoms—including working on real software projects for Atomic clients.

You'll join a team within a team.

Become part of the Accelerator team, a small group of new grads learning and working together. You'll also connect with the larger Atomic team and spend time with company leadership.

You'll get coached for success.

Dive into a guided curriculum that will polish your consultant skills and teach you to make problem-solving software for our clients. You’ll also get weekly coaching and feedback from experienced Atoms.

You'll keep on learning.

Attend two development conferences each year, plus local events and user groups. Atomic is serious about ongoing learning and contributing to the larger development community.

You'll jump start your career.

Get ahead in your career by joining a consultancy, where you’ll work directly with clients and use new platforms/languages every 4-6 months. You’ll quickly gain a larger knowledge base and professional network than your friends at product companies.

You'll be an Atom.

Join a tight-knit group of makers working in an atmosphere of friendship, collaboration, and respect. Atomic is a transparent, employee-owned company that takes great care of its employees. We're also making the software community stronger, smarter, and more diverse.

I joined the Accelerator program not knowing what to expect, but it has far exceeded my expectations. From the focus on technical growth to personal growth, the experiences and opportunities to learn and grow have been so valuable. The Accelerator program has given me a space to explore my interests, build new relationships, and really enjoy the work that I do. I couldn’t have asked for more.

The Accelerator Program has provided me an amazing foundation to jumpstart my career as a developer. The program has been the perfect space for incubating my growth as a young professional, and having a cohort to go through the journey by my side has made it all the more rewarding.

One of the things that attracted me to Atomic Object was the way in which mentorship and personal development growth are incorporated into our work week through the Accelerator program. The program has really given me the space to tailor my personal growth to my first development job. The cohort of Atoms I'm a part of also means that I get to grow with other atoms, which is nice because it forms another source of support.

The Accelerator program creates an ideal environment to develop professionally with exposure to multiple technologies and projects early on. Additionally, my favorite part of the program has been the Accelerator book club. It is a wonderful opportunity to step back from your daily work, reflect, and grow as an individual.
