We take good care of our people

Kionix provides a strong underpinning of benefits, rewards, and opportunities for all employees: 

  • Competitive compensation
  • An outstanding benefits package
  • Rewards in the form of advancement and salary enrichment
  • A friendly and dynamic work environment
  • State-of-the-art manufacturing and office facilities
  • Occasions to have fun together, including a company-wide spring golf tournament, summer family picnic, and elegant holiday dinner.

We foster an atmosphere that provides opportunities for employees to develop themselves to their full potential and notable work contributions are both recognized and rewarded. The Company's first choice in filling a management role is to promote from within. From engineers to production personnel, many employees at Kionix began their careers as individual contributors, and have, through dedication and enthusiasm for their work, been promoted to managerial positions.

Benefits that take away the worry

We have in place the best possible benefit plan for our employees, a plan more typically found in a company many times the size of Kionix.

Kionix offers deductible self-funded health, dental, and vision insurance plans of which 100% of the employee premiums are paid for by the Company. 

The Company's 401(k) Plan allows employees to contribute from 1% to 25% of salary to the Plan. Kionix matches 100% of employee contributions up to 6% of salary, which is immediately vested. The Kionix 401(k) Plan has been nationally recognized for its one-on-one consultation opportunity, provided by the Plan's local investment managers, and for its participation rate of 97%.
