Within Klaviyo, our email platform, you will be ensuring all data from Shopify is connected and is available to build useable segments to offer tailored automatic emails which will be sent to customers based on their interaction from our website.  

You will create occasional reports from within Shopify, Google Analytics or Klaviyo to ensure the progress of user experience improvement is trackable.
