We aim to attract and retain brilliant people and give them the maximum freedom and responsibility to create products and experiences that make a difference in education.
We're a remote-first organisation, and we always will be. Our employees are trusted to get the job done wherever works best for them. We have an office in London for those who wish to use it, but our employees work around the world.
Freedom: freedom helps us make better decisions, faster. Managers work with us to figure out what matters, but we decide how to get there.
Responsibility: we take complete ownership of our roles. We make smart, data-driven decisions and we own them.
Innovation: the greatest threat to our business isn’t making mistakes – it’s a failure to innovate. We treat mistakes as an opportunity to learn.
Candour: everyone, at every level, is encouraged to provide feedback to colleagues and leadership. This means we are all constantly improving.
Diversity, equity and inclusion are essential to our mission. Our culture of belonging covers our people internally, as well as our customers and business partners. We know it fuels our creativity and brings us closer to achieving Atom’s mission to democratise education for children of all backgrounds.
We commit to creating an environment where everyone is valued for who they are.
We value and support every individual and the differences they contribute to our company.
We commit to ensuring that the contributions of all our staff are recognised and protected.
We work hard to ensure that our internal processes are fair and transparent.
We do not tolerate any form of discrimination, intimidation, bullying, or harassment.
Our DEI Committee and Ambassadors make sure we are staying on track through initiatives like employee surveys, continuously working on new ideas to embed DEI in our products and services, and maintaining our inclusive culture.
We encourage employees across all levels to get involved in our Employee Resource Groups to create communities and safe spaces, to share resources and spread awareness across the business.
Senior Product Manager
I believe that education is where we can make the biggest impact on the future of our children, and what better way to do this than to re-think how our children learn? I'm making a difference to thousands of young people every day and doing it with a team of enthusiastic, supportive, driven and fun people.
Senior Digital Learning Manager
I joined Atom because I was looking for a way to work in a fast-paced start-up environment and have a positive impact on the world around me. Having delved into the social impact of education during my Master's, the opportunity was too good to pass up.
Visual Design Lead
We have an industry leading platform set up to support the learning journeys of kids all around the UK. More than that, Atom is bringing technology, outstanding content and community together to help children develop their core skills.
