Meet your Austin Upwork Ambassador, Scott Poniewaz



We’re excited to introduce you to Scott Poniewaz, your Upwork Ambassador in Austin.




Scott's professional experience includes co-founding the largest college daily deal site, building innovative e-commerce sites, a variety of travel companies, and growing FoundersCard, a Membership community for entrepreneurs, from its infancy to nearly 25,000 members. In addition to agency experience, he now has his own consulting practice, The Pony Group and is a Top Rated freelancer on Upwork. He is an avid hockey player, golfer, and First Tee Austin volunteer. As an Upwork Ambassador, Scott looks forward to helping new freelancers succeed through engaging workshops and events and working with veteran freelancers to help them unlock greater opportunities within Upwork, while bringing the Austin Upwork community together.


Scott will be inviting you to events in Austin, where you can meet other freelancers in and around Austin to share best practices, hear from experts on relevant topics, and get your questions answered. The invites will be sent to Top Rated and Rising Talent freelancers via e-mail.
