Meet Cicek Ozgenal - Kubixer Interview Series
Meet Cicek: a girl that didn’t aim for a ‘boring’ job when she was a kid, no; she wanted to become a genetic engineer. Being involved in projects that improve the quality of life and cure genetic illnesses for human beings, animals and plants, was what’s she was after. However; that’s not where she ended up. As a teenager, she gained interest in tech and landed herself a job in database management and IT. With her curiosity to understand people’s behaviors and by questioning the ‘how’ for almost everything, she realized that digital marketing was the place-to-be. She now unravels the mystery of user behaviors and eagerly tests the technologies the digital marketing scene is full of; day in, day out.
How does a typical day at the office look like for you?
When I come to the office, the first thing I do is grab a cup of coffee and a glass of water. While sipping on my drinks I use the time to clear my inbox, work on the projects I have, check the calendar, or do some quick work tasks that I want to get over with before the day begins.
I’m a digital marketer focusing on SEO/SEM; which is a fancy way of saying that we give consultancy to companies. My work mostly centers around Google Ads setups, optimization processes, and SEO. I like my job because there aren’t a lot of time-wasting meetings or phone calls, we mostly do everything digital :). I love my job because it is project-based, requires teamwork, and brings numerous new cases to learn more about and research further.
What are some of the projects you are currently working on?
I am currently working on Mavi, Oleg Cassini & Türk Telekom. We give SEM services for Mavi & Türk Telekom, and Oleg Cassini receives a comprehensive service from SEO to CRO that I work on. I also support Kubix Digital & Women Digital as much as I can in various ways.
Give 3 words to describe working at Kubix.
What’s always on your desk?
Napkins & Cologne. (I am the napkin supplier for the entire office).
When do you have the most fun at work?
I have more fun at work and enjoy the most when the whole team is in the office and interacts.
If you could add one thing to the office, what would it be?
I’d add a bathroom and a kitchen to our floor. They are located very far, and at moments where I get lazy sometimes I'm holding myself to not go to the bathroom.
If you had a warning label, what would yours say?
Be aware of Çiçek’s chat zone - unless you want to start an endless chit-chat with me.
What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?
Traveling abroad. This would force people to go out of their comfort zones, and gives them a chance to experience something they can’t usually have in their daily lives.
Among your friends or family, what are you famous for?
I’m sure everyone would say: being super hyper and non-stop talking.
What’s the most naughty thing you did as a child?
I was secretly biting my little sister’s foot just to make her cry. I continued until my mom found out and made me stop.
What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
Most people don’t know that at one point in my life, I was as heavy as 110 kilos.
Last: What is something that you are proud of?
As I mentioned before, at some point in my life I was 110 kilos. I learned that with self-control and patience, I can do anything I want and be successful. I believe the progress I have achieved today is my biggest proof. I am so proud of myself and my success. To me now; anything is possible!
