background about us

Making outreach more personal, productive, and effective

The PhoneBurner Story

On a quiet day in 2008 PhoneBurner proudly unveiled its power dialing platform to the world.

PhoneBurner’s US-based remote team of software engineers, programmers, and sales professionals are united in a single mission – to help people using the phone as a relationship-building and selling tool, to do it better. We measure success in meaningful conversations.

PhoneBurner is a technology company in practice. We’re a people business at heart. That means our dialer doesn’t call numbers at will and frustrate live answerers with abrupt recordings or awkward connection delays. It drives results by helping salespeople be smarter, fresher, better organized, and more productive on the phone - with functionality and ease-of-use that has always set us apart.

The PhoneBurner team is positively committed to the users we serve. We strive to engage, support, and connect one-to-one. When a client tells us they love our platform, we want to know how we can make it even better. Our company also believes in making a connection with our local community and the world around us. Our partnerships with organizations like Miracles for Kids and Y-Malawi is some of the best work we do.

I'm on a boat!
