Our people.

Our greatest strength lies in our people. We are a talented group of thinkers and innovators who are constantly pushing the status quo, disregarding the naysayers, and having a whole lot of fun along the way.



At Phononic, we truly value you as an employee and part of our professional family. Our goal is to offer the very best healthcare possible to you and your loved ones. With this in mind, we have developed a comprehensive employee benefit package designed to protect you and your family. All benefits, with the exception of voluntary life and FSA, are 100% paid by Phononic for eligible full-time employees, dependent children, and spouses.


Phononic recognizes the importance of providing each full-time employee the opportunity to take time off from work to rest, relax, recharge, and have fun. Because we are an organization with high performance standards, we offer a very flexible vacation policy.


Phononic provides paid sick time to regular full-time employees to provide them with protection against loss of income if they are ill or injured, need to attend to an immediate family member, or if they need time off from work for necessary or routine healthcare.
