We’re excited to offer a handful of placements at at least two Praxis business partners in the Austin, TX area this summer/early fall. One of those is with OutboundEngine, a software company that offers sales and marketing services and has grown at an amazing rate over the last few years. They’ve consistently been ranked one of the best places to work in Austin and continue to grow into a new office in downtown Austin. The company just raised $16 million in a Series C round and is using that to hire new people at their Austin, TX and Scottsdale, AZ offices. They want some of these hires to be Praxis participants.
The opportunity to work in a high-volume inside sales role is one that puts pressure on the individual and is a great fit for somebody with a highly competitive drive. Those who do well can experience near-unlimited upward potential and reap the benefits of doing well. This is the closest you can get to experiencing the incentives of being an entrepreneur — while internalizing the downside in the company with which you work.
OutboundEngine knows Praxis attracts some of the most driven, talented young people who are willing to break the mold and want to bring those kinds of people onto their sales team. A successful participant will be offered a full-time job at the completion of the program.
What You’ll Do:
- Schedule online product demos with prospective clients
- Move leads through the sales pipeline
- High volume calling to small businesses
- Manage pipeline in Salesforce.com
- Participate in sales training and meetings
What’s in it for you:

- Fully stocked kitchen, weekly paid lunches
- Company paid/sponsored monthly events including monthly happy hours
- Casual dress and music rocking all day
- An awesome work environment and culture
- Voted Top 10 Best Places to Work in 2013, 2014, 2015
What you should have:
- Positive attitude, killer work ethic, and be highly self-motivated
- No prior sales experience needed
- Willingness to embrace change, growth, and the fun of a start-up environment
- Excellent communication skills and drive to turn every conversation into a sale

PRAXIS EDUCATION EXPERIENCE
The Praxis Education Experience is built around outcomes, not just activities. Participants create tangible results through projects and tailored learning plans. The program delves into everything from digital skills and professional proficiencies to core concepts in philosophy, history, economics, technology, and business. While the business experience takes place onsite, the education component is done remotely through an online portal and interactive communication.
The participant is in control of this experience. With the assistance and coaching of Praxis advisors, participants create a professional development course to accelerate their growth. Between access to a world-class curriculum library, connections with entrepreneurs and intellectuals, and all the resources of the Praxis network, the education experience can’t be beat by sitting in a classroom. Learn more about the Praxis Education Experience.
A Look At Your Praxis Advisors:
Meet T.K. – T.K. Coleman is an entrepreneur, writer, public speaker, philosopher, and the Education Director at Praxis. Participants will work with T.K. throughout the program to complete personal development plans, grow professionally, and become more valuable, more marketable individuals.
Meet Cameron – Cameron Sorsby is a Praxis graduate and a Participant Advisor at Praxis. Participants connect with Cameron weekly to meet with entrepreneurs all around the country, develop plans to achieve their program goals, and learn hard and soft skills.
Praxis classes start every month now, and we’d love to have you on board. Participants from our most recent graduating class were hired by business partners, went on to start their own businesses, and created portfolios of valuable skills and experiences that will stay with them their entire lives.
