Looking for Hungry Media Buyers and Sales People

Joshua Lawton Announcements Leave a Comment

In a town like Austin, with a slogan of “Keeping it Weird”, it’s hard to go anywhere that is not filled with hungry people.  Nobody is hungrier or more motivated than us at Abraxas Technology. We love what we do, we love building products, and we’re very good at both of them. We’re looking for someone who is as hungry as us. Someone who has been in enterprise sales. Someone who has been a Media Buyer in a previous company. Someone who knows what ABC stands for and is ready to work hard (so that they are rewarded greatly). If …

The Way of the Tao

We’re very excited to bring on Aaron Tao. As you can imagine, titles in a startup are kind of like medals in the North Korean military, so we want to focus on why we invited Aaron to join our team. Aaron compliments and strengthens our approach to creating revenue: insightful and data driven articles that drive thought leadership and sales. In my humble opinion “Aaron is one of the best factual writers bar none to come out of the University of Texas at Austin.” Opinions aside, Aaron’s experience and knowledge in product marketing and digital marketing will strengthen our revenue pipeline.    …

We didn’t just head back down to San Antonio because we remember the Alamo, but also because we are now a part of the Geekdom Fund portfolio of companies! Not only does this give us additional penetration into the institutional investor community, but also extends our network through which we will grow Abraxas. An example of this network is the other reason for having gone down to San Antonio. Fundapalooza, an event they hold for their portfolio companies, is a phenomenal opportunity to network with key individuals.   Want to learn how Abraxas Technology can help you sell your OOH media?

Abraxas Technology Takes Home the Gold

Joshua Lawton Announcements Leave a Comment

If you’ve never been to a rodeo, you’ve never experienced a true Texas cultural phenomenon. You probably don’t realize how similar it is to being an entrepreneur and building a company: it’s tough, bruising, and fun all at the same time.   This weekend Abraxas headed down to San Antonio, Texas. Besides actually going to the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo we focused on making progress on building our network and creating opportunities for us in the nation’s 7th largest city. Part of our continued momentum and success is our ability to effectively communicate our vision for our company and …

ABRAXAS Website Launch

Justin Gilfus Announcements Leave a Comment

ABRAXAS Technology is bringing real-time metrics to the world of outdoor advertising. Our technology allows advertisers to measure how many people viewed their advertisement and when, by passively collecting and aggregating each digital signature that passes within its vicinity. For the first time, we can measure the return on investment of outdoor advertisements. I was recently described by Nibletz as “not your typical adman,” and that is an accurate depiction. When I left the Army, there was not a thought in my mind that I would build Austin’s largest digital billboard fleet, but what’s wonderful about our country is with …
