Q: Tell me about your role and your day to day life as a xukeeper?
A: I am a Senior Account Director at dataxu and I have been working on the same auto account for the past 4 years. Each day is slightly different but usually involves several internal and external meetings, client phone calls, and plenty of data investigation. The day to day differs, but each year is fairly routine by now. We know when to plan for next year, when to have our next QBR, when to visit the clients, etc. We are a well-oiled machine.
Q: Why did you join dataxu?
