You’ve heard of NBC, Business Insider , and The Atlantic . Well, Taboola is the company that recommends editorial and sponsored content to these highly trafficked sites—plus many others. By helping publishers both monetize their content and drive higher engagement, Taboola is giving brands the chance to bring their content to the right audience, at scale.
In the past three years, the company has experienced rocket ship growth. Besides expanding its international footprint further into Europe, Latin America, and Asia, Taboola has added more than 200 positions. With this growth, employees are offered endless travel and work abroad opportunities to expand their horizons. Gabriele Nizzoli, for instance, recently traveled in January. “I got to stay a full week in Tel Aviv with my colleagues planning for the months and years ahead,” shares the software engineer.
Taboola’s opportunities don’t stop at travel-related ones. According to team members, tons of opportunities exist for career advancement. First Level Support Team Leader Melissa Arrambide, for example, joined the company one and a half short years ago as an intern. As the company quickly expanded, so too did her responsibilities—and after a few months she found herself managing a team of nine. “Taboola moves really fast, and that creates so many opportunities for its employees,” she shares.
Although Taboola has grown exponentially over the past three years, the company has maintained its startup vibe. That is, Taboola makes every effort to keep its employees in a healthy, happy, and creative atmosphere throughout their workdays. Yoga balls are found all around the office, walking desks—or treadmill desks—are accessible for energized work sessions, and a grand piano is even available for people to enjoy playing throughout the day. “Taboola is certainly bigger than a startup,” says staffer Tom Dunlap, “but we still have that whole mentality.”

A board member of Columbia Organization of Rising Entrepreneurs, Kat is either hosting inspiring founders or trekking across cities (Silicon Valley and London, anyone?) to discover the hottest startups. And, when she’s not putting together large-group gatherings for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, Kat is planning food excursions to discover the best Taiwanese beef noodle soup in NYC. The only thing she loves almost as much as crafting content as an Editorial Intern at The Muse is studying content as an English Major at Columbia University.
