About Carl Erickson
Carl co-founded Atomic Object in 2001 after ten years teaching computer science at Grand Valley State University and a one year stint in a dot-com era startup. Atomic Object provides software product development services to companies from tiny startups to huge multinationals. Atomic has grown to a company of 24 people by applying agile practices and a consistent approach to web, desktop, mobile and embedded projects. A focus on software craftsmanship, rather than any particular domain or technology, has resulted in an unusually diverse customer base and consistent growth. Carl holds degrees in electrical and computer engineering from Purdue and Michigan State and maintains a part-time position as an industrial lecturer at Uppsala University in Uppsala, Sweden.
