Work at Fathom
We love deeply complicated projects that take the intimate knowledge of a domain expert and make it accessible to a much wider audience. Over the past seven years, we’ve worked with large corporations, smaller non-profits, government agencies, and nearby universities. We do projects about issues we care about, like gender equality, development, education, public health, and public transportation. We build tools for scientists and help them address issues like Ebola, Lassa fever, and malaria.
We geek out about music, pitch, color perception, and the digits of pi and tau. Our side projects feed our curiosities, occasionally putting our obsessions on public display. Even though we work in code and most of our projects are interactive, our traditional design training means we still really love print. We also use it as a means to support causes we think are important.
And even though “design” is part of our company’s name, we’re a little preoccupied with math and work on large software projects. In fact, a considerable amount of our time is spent on enabling others to learn to code or create interactive and visual things.
Below we’ve listed specific job openings, though it’s worth noting that many team members define their own positions. If your background and interests align with our work, we would love to hear from you!
