About Me

/Who Am I

I’m Matt Rhys-Davies a London based Ecommerce Analyst with a skillset that is tailored towards ecommerce architecture, analysis of ecommerce ecosystems, and platform migrations. Whilst I consider myself predominantly “platform agnostic” I have a leaning towards the LAMP stack, with extensive experience in Magento (Community & Enterprise), Drupal 6+, and WordPress, with active exposure to .NET, Python and Java systems.

 

In addition to architecture, build, and platform support I have 5+ years experience in digital marketing channels, including email marketing, SEO, PPC, affiliate marketing and multi-variate testing as well as being a certified Google Analytics practitioner.

It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.

/What I do

I help companies optimise their ecommerce and digital offering; whether it is the assessment and modification of existing ecosystems, or executing a full re-platform and migration, I bring a wealth of experience to the table.

Technical Architecture

Possessing an accomplished background in both development and ecommerce business analysis, I am effective and efficient in planning, executing and maintaining complex technical architectures across a wide range of verticals.


Web Replatforms

The decision to replatform is never an easy one to take, but is sometimes necessary. I am experienced in designing, delivering and migrating full replatform projects including: content migration, customer records, order history and SKU data. Whilst ensuring marketing activity and operations are not adversely impacted.


Performance Analysis

Assessing all channels of acquisition and customer journeys, I am adept at assessing the intent of the user (content consumption, data acquisition, transaction) and through an iterative approach, demonstrating measurable website and business performance.
