About Fathom

We think it’s insane that so many people and businesses rely on notes as a primary means of remembering and sharing insights from video calls.

Notes are time consuming and stressful to create while trying to hold a conversation. Even when done well, notes are a poor solution compared to hearing something first-hand.

We started Fathom to rid us all of the tyranny of note-taking and in just 18 months since launch we’ve already accomplished a lot:

Interview Process


  • No live coding. We have no idea who thought writing code on whiteboards was a good idea but we hate it. We’re much more interested in what you’ve done and learned.
  • You’ll meet the entire team. We think it’s important that you get to meet everyone you’ll be working with.
  • No bullshit. Ask us anything you like. We’ve never understood why companies pretend they’re something that they’re not in the hiring process – you’re going to find out eventually so we’d rather you know who we are up front so we can both make sure this is a good fit for all involved.
  • Quick turnaround time. We know you have lots of options so we move fast usually in less than a week from start to finish.
