Atomic is growing a diverse and inclusive team of curious, creative people who love creating great software for our clients.
We’re looking for thoughtful problem solvers who are passionate about finding success for our clients, teams, and end-users through the human-centered design process.
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 building software to help them do what they do better.
Atomic makers work on self-managed, cross-functional teams of 2-10 designers, delivery leads, developers, and testers. They collaborate to create products for our clients, from the idea phase through launch and beyond. Projects typically span 6 to 12 months, so you will have many opportunities to work with different people and tackle new challenges.
As a software designer at Atomic, you will guide the product design vision by balancing the needs of end-users, the client’s business goals, and technical constraints. You will operate as both a leader and generalist to pinpoint the needs of a project and execute across the gamut of design demands.
On one project, you may plan and conduct user research, wireframe solutions, create a visual design language, and support the development team with detailed design specs. Alongside delivery and technical leads, you will guide the team towards a solution at the intersection of desirable, feasible, and viable. You will work across all project phases, in both strategic and tactical capacities, executing on conceptual and tangible work.
You'll work alongside Atomic's talented team in Chicago. See the full job description (pdf) for more details, including a list of the qualifications we're seeking and a description of the benefits Atomic employees receive.
