Mission: To pursue our clients’ success.
I have been working at Atomic Object LLC full-time (More than a year)
The people are hands-down the best part about working at Atomic. Everyone is just a grade-A thoughtful, interesting, caring human being. I'd happily dig ditches for minimum wage with these people- it's a bonus that I get to do really interesting, challenging work with them.
There's lots of good stuff to say about AO, but the simplest way to say it is to direct you to our value mantras (can be found on our website). It's a really remarkable, unusual thing to be able to say that we /really do/ live them out every day- it's not a marketing campaign or corporate BS.
The nature of the job is that you don't get to have much say in what you work on. But, it's highly varied, and you're never doing something boring for long.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing. It's awesome.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Atomic Object LLC (Ann Arbor, MI) in January 2016.
They give you a lengthy questionnaire to fill out. This could be a negative for some people because you don't get to talk to anyone about atomic before you spend several hours trying to put together answers. I got a first interview I though was super simple except for one question. "Describe your first year at Atomic Object". Just seems like an odd question to me. I suppose they are looking at behavioral things. So after a straight forward easy interview I did not get an offer. I inquired why because sometimes it may be just some misunderstanding or can be resolved by explaining something better. I got no response to that. That's not the way I expect small companies to behave. Additionally they oversell themselves. They try to make a point to say all there positions are excellent for someone who is creative. I am aware of some of the places they are in and know that can't possibly be true. It seems like they do mostly small projects. If you want to build something big and complicated I think this is not the place for you but I could be wrong on that point.
