MiaProva facilitates scale. In fact, we have found that, on average, our customers are running ~30% more tests than before they were using MiaProva. Because of this scale, organizations often find themselves in need of additional resources to support their optimization program.

This was the case for one of our valued customers. They reached out to us to see if we could provide some technical questions to gauge the applicant’s technical capabilities in regards to Adobe Target. This role at this organization requires much more of a technical background than a typical end-user of Adobe Target due to the environment and the advanced nature of the integrated components in place.

So we did just that and put together the below list of questions and thought that others might find them interesting or helpful.

Technically focused questions

1.  Can you walk me through what this code is doing? 

<style id="flickersuppression" type="text/css">

    #slm-master-content-col-rightrail {visibility:hidden !important}
</style>
    
<script type="text/javascript">
    
    (function($){var c=function(s,f){if($(s)[0]){try{f.apply($(s)[0])}catch(e){setTimeout(function(){c(s,f)},1)}}else{setTimeout(function(){c(s,f)},1)}};if($.isReady){setTimeout("c=function(){}",100)}$.fn.elementOnLoad=function(f){c(this.selector,f)}})(jQuery);
    
    var pname = utag_data["page_name"];
    
        if (pname=="HomePage") {
    
            $('#RedesignVersion').elementOnLoad(function(){
    
                $('#LegacyVersion').hide();
                $('#RedesignVersion').show();
            })
        }
