Atomic Object

After working together during the DotCom boom, Carl Erickson and Bill Bereza founded Atomic Object in 2001. Carl and Bill originally started their work together with research projects at GVSU where Carl was a professor and Bill was an undergraduate.

In 2003 we purchased and rehabilitated the century-old Helmus Brothers building that is our current home. In 2003 we also founded the trade association SoftwareGR, which typically attracts 25-50 IT professionals to monthly meetings and brings in nationally-known experts.

In 2011, we created Atomic Embedded, a group specializing in embedded development.

In the spring of 2012 we opened an office in downtown Detroit, and in 2013 we acquired SRT Solutions in Ann Arbor and established an office there. We are currently hiring designers and developers to work with us at all three of our offices.

Atomic Object has averaged greater than 25% revenue growth per year since its inception and currently ranks as the second largest software development company in West Michigan according to the Grand Rapids Business Journal. Not only have we done well locally, we’ve also gained national recognition.

The communities we’re a part of are a vital aspect of who we are. Supporting those communities is a reward of running our business well.

Our Goals

  1. Help our clients compete in the global marketplace.
  2. Continually strengthen our world-class software development process.
  3. Be the best possible workplace for those who practice Software Craftsmanship.
  4. Contribute to a diverse, innovative, and sustainable Michigan.
  5. Be great instead of big.
