Our values create a culture of shared success across companies, helping drive collaboration and ideation.
Atomic is hiring for our rotational internship program. This means you’ll apply to the Atomic Intern Program and you’ll spend the summer on either a fund-centric initiative or working for one of our awesome portfolio companies.

Some of the (many) things you may do with us:

    • Strategic Finance. Interested in Corporate Finance? Venture? Join our finance team and see what it’s like to be a strategic financial partner to portfolio company CEO’s, including helping make important product/pricing decisions, doing viability assessments, and thinking through mission-critical tasks.

Who You Are:

    • You are insanely driven.
    • You are no stranger to ambiguity. Actually… you kinda thrive in it.
    • You love challenges and solving problems.
    • You are currently an undergrad or graduate student at a top tier university.
    • You are a learner, not a knower.

What You’ll Get:

    • An experience of a lifetime being in the heart of Silicon Valley’s first premier Venture Studio.
    • You’ll learn how to assess ideas, grow ideas, test concepts, and ultimately become intimately familiar with the process.
    • A tight cohort of fellow interns going through similar experiences. Who knows… you may even start companies together one day.
    • Complimentary accommodation in a Bungalow residence.
    • 12-weeks of awesomeness.
Since this is a competitive position, we are only going to be accepting a handful of interns this summer. Once you are accepted, you will find out where you are assigned (The Atomic Fund, with an FIR, with a Portfolio Company) a few weeks before your internship starts. Of course we will do our best to take your preference into account!
We are focused on building a diverse and inclusive workforce. If you’re excited about this role, but do not meet 100% of the qualifications listed above, we encourage you to apply.
