Drumroll, please. The ballots are in, and we are excited and honored to announce the finalist for our 2015 Optie Awards!

The Optie Awards recognize and celebrate the spectacular work of Optimizely customers and the achievements they’ve made through experience optimization. I was lucky enough to read through all of our Optie submissions, and am humbled and impressed by the amazing accomplishments of our customers.

Optie Finalists were selected based on the following criteria: pursuit of innovation, business impact, demonstrated expertise, thoroughness of entry, and fulfillment of the category’s description. Winners will be announced prior to Opticon, and awarded on stage live at the conference on Thursday, June 18. Check out the finalists and winners from 2014.
