Tomaž Bešter Optimisation Consultant | Frontend Developer

As a Conversion Rate Optimisation (CRO) and User Experience (UX) Optimisation Consultant, I am currently highly involved in developing and managing frontend based projects, using world renowned A/B testing tools.

I am the key driver to determine potential areas for site improvement that will maximise ROI for each client. With over 10 years' experience in web development, my hands-on approach has allowed me to acquire a unique skill set, to not only be successful in frontend development tasks (HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, Javascript) but also develop a real talent for layout and visual design (Photoshop, Illustrator), in both customer facing websites and bespoke web applications.
