Araujo (nicknamed Beto) started his career in Finland in 1996 playing with premier division side TPS and 1st division side Kultsu. He then returned to Argentina where he played for Aldosivi, Arsenal de Sarandí and Racing de Córdoba in the 2nd division. In 2002, he moved to Peru where he played for Sport Boys and then Sporting Cristal where he won a Peruvian league title.
In 2007, Araujo joined LDU Quito where he helped the club to win the Serie A in his first season. In 2008, he was part of the team that won the 2008 Copa Libertadores, eliminating 3 Argentine teams, including his former club Arsenal de Sarandí and winning the cup. In 2009, he would achieve the South American treble by winning the 2009 Copa Sudamericana and 2009 Recopa Sudamericana. Later in 2010 he was part of the team that won the 2010 Ecuadorian Copa Credife and Recopa sudamericana 2010.
In late 2010, Araujo legally obtained his Ecuadorian citizenship, allowing him to be called up to the Ecuadorian national team. Despite not being called up for a number of pre-tournament friendlies, Araujo was chosen to be part of Ecuador's squad for the 2011 Copa América. He earned his first cap on June 25, 2011 versus Mexico in a friendly game prior to the start of the tournament. He went on to start in all three of Ecuador's group games in the Copa America.
