I am Christian Schmidt,
a CEO, data scientist, and web/software-developer with more than 20 years of experience in the field of web and software development, SEO, and Data Management. I am a computer scientist who, in free time, loves to grow the Sansevieria plants in hydroculture – it is really a delight to see those little snake leaves grow!
I have always felt a strong pull towards the tech world, it was like I knew right from the beginning what my true calling was. I was merely a child when I first started programming and building websites in the year 1998 and I haven’t looked back since.
I began my career formally in 2004 when I founded my first Sole Trader Business which I continue to pursue to this day. Being my own boss and employee gave me the opportunity to learn at a sprightly speed, I understood market dynamics and acquired the gifted skill of business administration. It was in 2004 when I started building SEO optimized websites and earned significantly through affiliate marketing.
In 2008, I joined construktiv, a dynamic digital agency that provides marketing services. I continued to work for construktiv till 2012, I served there for five years and was designated on various positions and worked on a number of projects (e.g. Mister-Wong, websnapr, trafficmaxx). It was during this period that I developed a keen interest in data science and to this day, scraping and parsing data is something that enchants me the most. I learned the skills of data management and the nitty-gritty of data science during this period. I also started investing in a couple of startups and web-based companies, something that I am still interested in.
In 2010, I came up with a new project the “KeywordMonitor”, a software monitoring tool that effectively tells you how well your website is doing in terms of SEO optimization, basically a SaaS for SEO monitoring. In 2018 I founded the company Vier Digital, that has prowess in Data Science, Software & Web Development, and Online Marketing.
With years of experience, I have accumulated a good deal of skills. I am an expert in a number of software programming languages. I also have advanced SEO knowledge with ( special ) expertise in technical optimization owing to my programming background and experience in data science. I am well equipped in dealing with hefty amounts of data, and skilled in data management and collection as well as scraping and parsing data.
I have command over affiliate marketing, web and print design as well as business administration. I have learned a number of skills over my years in the tech business and have launched a number of projects of my own, furthermore I have received my professional certification as a Print Media Designer certification in the subject area of Design and Technology issued by the IHK (Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce).
