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 the CEO.
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.
What's it like being in the Accelerator?
In the Accelerator program, there’s not only a focus on improving our technical skills through professional development, but on our soft skills as well. Being able to communicate thoughts and ideas to co-workers and clients alike is very important as a consultant, and the Accelerator program encourages us to work on those abilities alongside our technical ones.
Cell One has really focused on individualizing our curricula, so that each of us can grow as developers and consultants in our own way. We still work together and study many of the same subjects, but the emphasis on personalized growth is a very unique opportunity.
One of my fears going into the software industry was that I would become pigeon-holed into one technology. In just my first four weeks I started learning a wide variety of things (Xamarin, GraphQL, Typescript, React, Redux, supply chain theory...). It motivates me to think how much I'll know by the end of the accelerator program.
Anything that happens within Atomic is completely open to everyone—from time-tracking to board meetings. My favorite part about working here is being surrounded by so many intelligent and motivated people. Every day, I’m amazed by how much everybody brings to Atomic, and I feel like I come away as a better developer and with more knowledge.
