Job Description

Atomic is a venture fund that funds and founds companies. We don’t take pitches. We build. We believe that disruption is most successfully achieved by pairing innovative ideas with business discipline. We have launched and scaled more than 20 companies, including Hims & Hers, OpenStore, Replicant, Bungalow, Homebound, Found, Butter, and more.

You’re currently viewing the Strategic Finance Associate application. This role is based in San Francisco (open to remote).

As a Strategic Finance associate at Atomic, you will be the first finance person at many early stage companies across a range of industries. You will be a key partner to founders as they develop and scale their businesses. This is an unparalleled learning and growth opportunity for anyone with future aspirations of being a CEO, COO or CFO.


  • Build the strategic finance function for new companies across multiple companies and industries started within the Atomic studio model, and in partnership with Atomic’s accounting team that will prepare financial statements for the companies.
  • Develop core financial tools for companies, including P&L modeling, unit economics analyses and definition of company KPIs.

  • Impeccable integrity and care required to work closely with founders on sensitive topics.

What you'll get:

  • Join the Atomic network of professionals spanning across our portfolio companies.
