The Team | Your monetization partner

The PubGalaxy Story

It all started in 2001 with our very own website – PhoneArena.com. We quickly became one of the leading tech sites worldwide and growing at such a pace certainly had its challenges. One thing was certain – our team had to spent a huge amount of resources towards our ad setup if we were to keep up. So, we started testing every major monetization product on the market. When we finally found the right path, we immediately wanted to share our expertise with other publishers and in 2013 that endeavor took on a life of its own. That’s how PubGalaxy was born. Today, we’re in the advertising business and our team is trusted by some of the major publishers as their monetization partner. Yet, we still think like a publisher because we lived as one.

PubGalaxy Team Mentality

As a group of people, we’re as different as they come. But as a team we stand united by our love for quality media and the way of thinking we all share.

People come first

In an industry so heavily dependent on technology, our greatest asset is still our team. It’s all about real people making a connection, everything else is expendable.

Truth over profit

We don’t beat around the bush. Whether it’s good or bad news, you can rely on us to give it to you straight. Honesty is how we grow and what we believe in.

One for all, all for one

We’re in this together. Working with our monetization partners has always been first and foremost about becoming a real team. Join the PubGalaxy family!

Our Team = Your team

At PubGalaxy we understand how important it is to have a trusted partner by your side. Working with us feels as if you had your own monetization team, and we like to keep it simple. Your dedicated Account Manager makes business meetings as easy as talking to a friend, while the rest of the team is always available on a moments notice.
