There’s a lot happening in the community at Optimizely.  

The Optimizely community continues to grow and our community slack now counts over 2800 members, with new professionals joining daily. 

The Optimizely MVPs (a group of 70+ technical community contributors) have been busy writing code packages, how-to guides, and blog posts to help technical users get the most out of Optimizely products.  

Today we’re excited to welcome 11 extraordinarily helpful community members to the prestigious MVP group! The Optimizely MVPs enjoy benefits exclusive to them including early access to new products & features, an audience with Optimizely leadership for feedback, and in person parties/events and swag!

While the MVP program started out focusing on developers sharing technical blogs and code, the program was expanded in early 2017 to also include Digital Strategists. Today we recognize technical users across our product disciplines. The basic requirements for all Optimizely MVPs are the same as for developer MVPs - to share and inspire others. 

If you know someone you think should be an MVP, go ahead and nominate them or send them the link to apply directly.

Keep up with all Optimizely MVP activities by following our official twitter account and the MVP operated Instagram account!
