    Hey, I am using it with Sketch and all other tools. I have no special setup. All my Express keys are set to disable because I am used to keyboard shortcuts. For Pen, I have a bottom button as 'Pan/Scroll' and top one as a right click.

    Thank you very much! When working in commerce business of course you always look first at what value that brings to company - if you dont make from feature, why have it? :) but features can have positive improvement to user experience and then also bring revenue to the project.

    They are always looking for new designers, so I think its not hard to get spotted by their ad :)

    Hey, yes maybe the title was a bit too hostile - I just wanted to emphasise that even if you do a really good interview and exercise you might not get hired and thats it should be taken as good thing - something that you learned and not a bad thing :)

    I took the whole process as a positive experience that lead me then to MOBGEN Accenture Interactive. I enjoyed every step of the interview process at Booking.com and got back really valuable feedback :)

    Thank you very much! I also am not a biggest fan of take-home exercises. The one from Booking.com was interesting to me, because it give an insight how actual day to day of a designer at Booking.com goes - coming up with small improvements, building them and testing them. Also the exercise did not take too much time, because they were small improvements.

    Really like how you approached the take home exercise and transformed it into a small workshop, really like the approach! (and congrats on getting the job).

    Hey, thank you! :) The feedback on the improvements was really positive, but I wasn't selected because other part of interview - the famous redesign of ATM wasn't perfect :(

    I wanted to share this article to also help others prepare for interviews at Booking.com and share my experience.

    Hey Lucian, thank you for your feedback. Yeah the A/B testing has its pros and cons, at Booking.com they heavily rely on that so its really challenging for designers to come up with good solutions that will also convert :).

    But yes designers at Booking.com really need to have a wide arrange of skills, not just visual.

    Thank you James for the feedback. The idea was to come up with 3 actionable improvements to current page that can be easily measured and what is already currently on the page is proven with test to work, so I wasnt thinking of removing elements.

    The feedback on design challenge was very positive, but I failed on the other task on the on-site interview. The final feedback was that I was not ready yet.
