Gal is a member of the SRE team in the Infrastructure group. As such, I take part and lead tasks that improve Taboola’s performance and stability.
Gal works on the core pillars of our infrastructure, to support Taboola's ever-growing scale.
The fun part of his job is to look at the big picture of our system and track down suspicious bottlenecks. Gal is doing so, by using both in-house and open source monitoring and profiling tools.
The culprits can be Taboola’s services, or even commercial and open source 3rd party services. After catching them, he does whatever is necessary to make the services great again.
