Meet Gokay Pehlivan - Kubixer Interview Series

Meet Gokay: a guy that in his younger years dreamed of becoming a driver. All he wanted was to sit in the front passenger seat of the car next to his dad and drive around - only his parents wouldn’t always allow him to sit there. Maybe that’s the reason why he didn’t become a driver and instead worked as a cashier, sales representative, coastal area cleaner, and e-commerce manager. After launching his own company, he started to invest time in digital marketing since no-one was visiting his website. The moment the first user made a conversion on his website, his passion for digital marketing was born - because he himself, brought that first converting user to his website!

How does a typical day at the office look like for you?

When I come to the office, I first go to the kitchen to get myself a water and coffee. After some small talks with my friends about the day, I start reading e-mails and go over the team conversations to get up to date. Then I make my daily important and urgent tasks clear, and plan my to do’s. If I have time in-between, I check the news related to technology and digital marketing. I also like to read our team channels on Slack and attend the conversations during the day.

What are some of the projects you are currently working on?

KIA and Mavi are the main projects I am involved in. We are doing PPC marketing for Mavi, managing Google Ads account, and focus on achieving Mavi’s marketing goals and strategies. On the other side, KIA is a totally different project that requires different marketing perspectives from me.

When do you have the most fun at work?

When the Berlin team is in Istanbul and we all work together.

As the only human left on Earth, what would you do?

I would still look and see if I can find somebody. I would never be really sure if I was 'the only one' until I die :)

What’s one item you want to own, that you don’t?

An acoustic guitar from Gibson.

If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to?

It would be the years of the first human. I am really wondering how it all started.

My family.
