Professional Development

Staying ready for whatever comes next.

Atomic invests heavily in books, classes, and conferences. Nearly every Atom attends a conference every year, some more.

Beyond that, we all invest our own time in professional development—reading, learning new skills, attending user groups, etc. Atoms plan their own learning, on their own schedule, given their unique life circumstances and career stage.

We also share what we've learned by staying connected—even when we can't be together and at internal events like our sesquiannual internal conference.

"I love Atomic's commitment to our growth. We host educational events, Atoms are constantly sharing interesting tech articles—I'm always learning new things."
- Rachael McQuater


We're working hard to make Atomic a place of respect, support, and friendship—a place where every person can be their genuine self. Where hard work, kindness, and ingenuity are rewarded, and bias is struck down wherever it appears.
"My philosophy has always been to hire trustworthy people—then trust them."
- Carl Erickson

Structure & Management

Be supported. Be heard. Be a leader.

The fundamental arrangement of Atoms is a Project Team—short-term groups of makers organized around the products we create. All Atoms work directly with their clients.

We believe that decisions should be made as close to the situation as possible, so Atomic has very little management hierarchy. At the top are Shawn Crowley and Mike Marsiglia, our Co-CEOs. And each office has 2 Managing Partners who handle day-to-day operations—that's it. You can read more about their work at Great Not Big.

Atoms are very active in the Atomic do-ocracy. Over 60% of us are owners, our Advisory Board holds regular open meetings, and we discuss each quarter's Profit & Loss statement at our quarterly company meetings.

Open Positions

We're looking for curious people who take pride in what they do and love working on a team to make great software. If we don't currently have an open position in your area of expertise, you can still send us your resume and we'll reach out when something is available.
