We were the first direct Employer of Record.
Now, we’re much more.

Atlas enables innovative companies to compete in a global economy, believing that businesses should employ whomever they want, wherever the talent exists. As the largest Direct Employer of Record (EOR), Atlas is a technology platform that is supported by experts and delivers flexibility for companies to expand across borders, onboard talent, manage compliance, and pay their global workforce without the need for a local entity or multiple third-party providers. 

With entities in over 160 countries, Atlas brings localized experience and expertise into an enterprise-grade technology platform that supports thousands of companies and remote teams. The Atlas platform is uniquely designed to deliver end-to-end EOR solutions and empowered user experiences that provide self-service capabilities and real-time insights that lead to improved business outcomes.

We are committed to widening the margins of entrepreneurship and employment alike. Our business model helps startups and SMBs compete on the international playing field—turning commercial innovations into viable global enterprises. In doing so, it brings opportunity to local economies and the people who work there.
