Better eCommerce through User Experience

"In my role as UX designer on the Expedia.com Hotels team, I was responsible for designing A/B tests for the Hotel Search results and Hotel Details pages. Every user story resulted in a set of A/B test variants by the end of the sprint. I picked up the following skills: - How to create with hypotheses and how to break it down into a set of A/B test variants - How to design for web performance and accessibility - How to design using a tightly constrained UI toolkit - Creating design variants by simply editing live pages in Chrome Inspector and handing off screenshots for each responsive breakpoint - How to maintain the "story" of the design across responsive breakpoints so as to not invalidate A/B test results"
