Data Analyst

I have been working as a "Data Analyst" at Trusted Shops since mid-2021 and work independently and in collaboration with colleagues on the topic of data. I have made it my task to provide automated, data-driven, real-time insights for customer success management in order to initiate measures for customer-oriented solutions and decisions. This is done through independent analysis, defining and determining KPIs, and creating dashboards. I enjoy supporting my team and Trusted Shops in achieving our goals with these data-driven topics day after day.
