Introducing Pixafy Account Executive Jason Riemer

Posted by Pixafy Team


Jason Riemer joins Pixafy as our first Account Executive, bringing with him a great sales background! We’re excited to have him on board and asked him our standard interview questions as he was settling in:

Q:  Where are you originally from?  Do you still have family there?  Do you have any siblings?  If so, what do they do?  Any significant/insignificant others?

I grew up in Armonk, NY.  My parents still live in the house that I grew up in.  My younger sister is currently in grad school at Teacher’s College at Columbia University.

Q:  Are there any mentors/other people who’ve been particularly instrumental in your direction to date?

Both of my parents have had a strong influence on my life and I credit them with shaping me into the person I am today.  They have taught me the value of being good to people and that it is beneficial to see that the glass is half-full.

Q:  How did you discover Pixafy?

I met Uri last year through a mutual friend.  We had a beer together and told me a little about his venture.

Q:  What is your first impression of Pixafy?

The amount of work being accomplished is incredible and the people here are nothing if not welcoming.

Q:  What do you find is the most exciting part of sales?

Aside from closing a new deal, I enjoy meeting and speaking with new people and I enjoy being able to provide solutions and demonstrate the value of my company’s service.

Q:  How about the most frustrating?

The most frustrating part of sales is easily when the line of contact with a new prospect goes cold without any explanation.

Q:  What do you enjoy most about New York City?

I love NYC for many reasons, most of all because there is always something to do.  I grew up in a small town where a night out was meeting up with your friends in a parking lot and throwing a football around.  Living and working in NYC keeps me busy with fun things.

Q:  What kind of music do you listen to?

I listen to many different types of music from jazz to hip hop to rock and roll to bluegrass.  Right now I am enjoying the stylings of a few young hip-hop artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$ and Chance the Rapper.  Radiohead is my favorite band and put on the best concert I have ever seen live at Bonnaroo in 2006.

Q:  Any unusual hobbies that we should know about?

I am competitive and love playing games (sports, video games, board games, card games).  I play guitar, bass and drums for fun with a few friends once a week.  I would scuba dive every day if I had the opportunity.

Q:  If you won the proverbial lottery, what would you do with your windfall?

I would trash whatever room I was standing in when I found out that I won, then replace everything I broke with some of my winnings.  Then I would buy an apartment.

Q:  What is your favorite part about the Internet today?

How easy it is to stay in touch with people.  I have friends all over the country who I am in contact with daily through chat or email.

Q:  What piece of technology would you say has had the most impact on your life?

Nintendo 64

Q:  What do you hope to accomplish at Pixafy?

I hope to expand Pixafy’s presence nationally, build out our partner relationships, manage a successful sales team and close more business than we know what to do with.

Q:  What’s something that no one at Pixafy knew about you (until now)?

I once hitch-hiked from Tennessee to New Jersey.

We’d love to hear from you! Leave us a comment or tweet us @Pixafy.
