Atoms is a product first company and we believe all great businesses get to invent a great product first and everything else follows. We launched Atoms publicly in June 2019, to make a shoe that people would want to wear every day, and build an engaging community.

Two years later, we added over 150,000 customers, responded to the pandemic by making/donating over half a million masks. We design and make our own products, do our own operations and logistics. Our customers love our products, and the vision for the brand. Humans of New York recently did an in depth story on our co-founders’ journey to building Atoms, that was read by millions of people around the world.



  • Thoughtful | Being clear on your thoughts and actions. It requires asking “why” a few times to really understand, before moving on to “what” and “how.” You are always having an impact, the question is what you are trying to have an impact on. It is about thinking through the long term impact of what you are trying to do, or not trying to do.
  • Hospitality | Every interaction and decision is an opportunity to treat our customers in a warm and friendly way. Hospitality means caring for the long term relationship with our customers, instead of one-time transactional exchange. It applies to both interacting with our customers, as well as while designing products/experiences for them.
  • Simplicity | Our goal at Atoms is to not merely make things, it is about making them simple. When something is simple, it is easy to understand, and joy to use every time. If it is not clear, it is not simple
  • Creative | Being able to imagine beyond the obvious, and then actually making those ideas into reality. Creativity brings meaning and joy to.

We have major new products and customer experiences launches coming in the next few months. This is where you come, a thoughtful leader to help grow Atoms by building and overseeing our internal operations to scale to the next phase.
