Apologies for the late response!

Ok, the one page thing. Yes many companies use ATS software, but what is really important to note about this software is that it doesn't make decisions on behalf of humans. So ATS software won't be the reason you get an interview or not, it'll be a person. Keywords are one of the easier things these tools pick up, so by having a dedicated skill section first you already are doing a good job letting ATS do its job. Past that, optimize for humans reading your resume. That means if you need more than one page to show off your best stuff, add another page.
