Play six years of Hassan in Taboola

Over nearly six years at Taboola, I’ve worn several hats, starting as SMB Publisher Account Manager within the SEA company, then moving up to SMB Publisher Account Director and now proudly serving as the Director of Sales and managing SMB publisher accounts.

Why I continue to grow my career at Taboola

It’s the daily collaboration with multiple teams, each interaction a new piece of the puzzle in our collective success story. I’m so proud of the incredible team we’ve built—a profitable group with a culture that encourages collaboration and growth. It’s the perfect combination of challenges that keep me on my toes, continuous learning opportunities that fuel my growth, and a clear path forward in my career. Most of all, it is the people, my colleagues, who inspire me daily to push the limits and deliver my best work.

What sets Taboola apart?

One thing that sets Taboola apart in the industry is how we approach partnerships with publishers globally. It’s not just about income; it’s about creating products that truly empower our partners, aligning perfectly with my belief in building strong and meaningful relationships for sustainable success.

Transitioning to Taboola from a different industry was no small feat, but the supportive environment here made for smooth sailing. From comprehensive training programs to a collaborative team ethos, every step was a lesson in growth and adaptability. Taboola also offers opportunities to participate in initiatives such as the Women Leading Change campaign, which values ​​diversity and inclusion and helps empower and motivate women in the marketing communications industry.

What’s the most valuable tip you’ve learned as a member of the Taboola sales team?

A nugget of wisdom I have always picked up is to bring data to the table. In our fast-paced world, data-driven decisions are the key to staying ahead and getting results. For example, when working with publishers, we always need data to back up our sales pitches and optimization suggestions to clients. It’s what makes us credible and helps us make informed decisions. Additionally, I prioritize the extensive use of data to manage my team’s performance. This allows my team and I to make fair and well-informed decisions to support our collective and personal growth.

How has Taboola enabled you to live a balanced life outside of work?

Taboola’s family-friendly approach and flexibility have been a game-changer for me. The people here really understand what it means to balance work and family life and that it is not just a bonus, but a testament to the company’s commitment to employee well-being. My grandmother lived in another country and my manager granted me the flexibility to work remotely so that I could spend time with her before she passed away. That time spent together meant the world to me, and having an employer who understands the importance of family is priceless. During a difficult time, Taboola supported me and relieved me from feeling stressed or overwhelmed by my work.

How do you influence your role at Taboola or beyond?

In my role, I strive to create an environment where everyone feels valued, challenged and part of something bigger. It’s not just about individual success, it’s about lifting the whole team and driving collective growth. This is achieved through transparency in communication, such as sharing important updates on a consistent basis. We set shared goals each week to keep us focused and track our progress, allowing us to see how we’re doing and where we’re headed as a team. We celebrate successes and recognize achievements, which boosts morale and encourages everyone to do their best. Through collaborative projects that benefit the entire team, we’ve strengthened our bonds and worked together to improve our business.
