Job Summary

Atonix Digital develops and offers a suite of software powered by the ASSET360® cloud-based analytics platform. Our solutions create a multidimensional view of systems, infrastructure assets and processes to boost efficiency, increase accuracy of planning and improve day-to-day decision-making in an ever-changing landscape at more than 100 businesses worldwide.

We help clients rethink their standard business operations and restructure their decision-making processes to ensure planning and performance meet consumer demands profitably.

The word Atonix was inspired by the naval term “aid to navigation,” often referred to as “ATON.” It’s any device or marker external to a vessel or aircraft intended to assist navigators in determining their position or safe course, or to warn them of dangers or obstructions to navigation. Similar to how an ATON aids travelers during nautical or aviation navigation, Atonix Digital helps our clients navigate through big data.

Atonix Digital is a wholly owned subsidiary of Black & Veatch.
