That’s not to say we’re all like-minded! We have SME’s in Digital Advertising, Customer Leads, Website Experience, Inventory, Sales, Field Training, and more. Other than your great co-workers, the best part of being a Digital Analyst at Shift is the plethora of data we have available. We’re not limited to just Website Metrics or Customer Leads.
