The Company

Atomic Object is a consultancy that creates custom software products. We work across web, mobile, desktop, and embedded product development—helping our clients innovate and grow by doing what they do better.

The Position

Atomic is looking for a maker of leaders. As a Principal Consultant at Atomic, you will be a resource for technical leads, both new and old.

You’ll also solve the thorniest technical problems on Atomic’s work for clients. You'll participate in the entire product development lifecycle: upfront technical discussions with clients, subsequent research and planning engagements, and software development on concurrent projects.

Atomic makers work on self-managed teams of 2-10 designers, developers, and testers. They collaborate to create products for our clients, from the idea phase through launch and beyond. Teams are project-based and the Principal Consultant and Developer goes where the need is the greatest.

Atomic lives by its teach and learn mantra. The Principal Consultant and Developer lives out this value by mentoring a new generation of developers as they leave our Accelerator program. The Accelerator will aid them in becoming software engineers & consultants. You will help them become technical leaders.
