Hi. I'm Matthew Brandt.

Some people call me Matty or @mattytwoshoes, my online handle.

I make data taste better!

Who Am I?

As a Data Person and Entrepreneur, I am focused on deriving the most value possible out of data and helping others make better decisions.

Skill

For over 10 years I have worked with 50+ companies to create tracking concepts, oversee and work on analytics implementations, build reporting stacks and perform analysis on data for different stakeholders. The last few years I have been focused on SaaS and additionally finding ways to operationalise data for different teams. Currently I am working full-time for Well, a Swiss Digital Health Platform.

Self

My experience in data is across many different areas, which is why I sometimes use the term Decision Engineer. All facets of the analytics spectrum excite me, whether it's ideation with stakeholders, requirements engineering, writing specifications for technical implementations or JavaScript to support data collection, collaborating with data scientists to create data products, coding queries in SQL or building reports and dashboards. Ultimately, I am focused on helping people make smarter decisions.

Side-Projects

As part of livestreaming, I spend a lot of time on sideprojects to practice programming, level up my data skills and solve problems, either for me or for others. You can see what kinds of things I have built here!

Setup

Lots of people ask me what gear and software I use for both work and building things. I put together this page for you to have an easy to way to see it all!

School

Having a B.Sc. in International Hospitality Management doesn't have much to do with analytics - but I approach problems with a service and customer-first mentality, which people I work with appreciate. I believe learning is a lifelong process and therefore my formal education is only a small part of the knowledge and skills I carry.

Streaming

Since December 2020, I have been livestreaming multiple times weekly on Twitch. With my streams, I learn and educate the global community about data & analytics. As formal education opportunities to enter this field are few and far between (and lagging several years behind the current state), this is a great opportunity to foster a better understanding of data.

I am proud to be part of a lovely streaming community known as The Claw .
