Design Lead - Atomic

Atomic is a venture fund that founds companies. Founded in 2012, we believe that disruptive innovation is most successfully achieved by pairing innovative ideas with business discipline, and that building those ideas into businesses is not something that can be outsourced. We are engineers and entrepreneurs who build and operate the next generation of great companies. Most of the Atomic companies have teams split between San Francisco and Toronto/KW, so you’ll be working closely and communicating regularly with remote colleagues.


In this unique opportunity, you’ll be a key part of Atomic’s in-house design team, working closely with our Design Director across the entire portfolio of Atomic companies - including Hims, Hers, Zenreach, Bungalow, Terminal, Homebound, Ever AI, and others.

What You’ll Do - Function

In addition to working closely with our established companies, you’ll also be on the frontlines working directly with founders to help test and start new companies. From conceptualizing, researching, designing, and bringing to life the first versions of new products, all the way up to building the brand philosophy, logos, sales & marketing collateral, and everything in between. We run about 20-30 tests each year, and start around 4-6 companies from them.

What You Bring - Experience

  • Experience in building and shipping applications or software
  • A link to your portfolio

What You Have - Skill

  • Ability to own all aspects of design for a given company (product, brand, creative)
  • Comfortable giving and soliciting feedback from other designers
  • Ability to handle multiple projects and a wide variety of work
  • Proficiency in Adobe CC, Sketch, and/or your design tools of choice

We’re looking for someone who is excited by a large variety of design work - you could be creating mockups for a new consumer mobile app in the morning, and making jumbotron ads for an NHL game in the afternoon. You could be creating slide decks for an enterprise AI company, and sitting alongside developers to polish your latest version of a live web app - all in a day’s work.

We’re looking for someone who’s at their best in a fast-paced startup environment, communicates very well across multiple teams, and consistently produces really high quality design work.

We plan to continue growing this team, and would love for you to grow with it. As an early hire, you’ll be formative in shaping the future of the Atomic design team.
