- Created a new feature called "Recommended Freelancers", so clients can start interviewing freelancers immediately after they post a job. This was an effective pattern on desktop and we wanted a optimized version for mobile.
- The challenge was to make each recommended freelancer appealing for clients to interview. We tested different ordering and types of data to display and visually we tried list and card views.
- Worked on conception, wireframe, prototyping for user testing and final implementation.
Recommended Freelancers Card View. Clients can see enough informations on each freelancer in one page view, and swiping through the cards to see other freelancers easily.
Recommended Freelancers List View. Tested 2 version with internal users, and decided to go with card view. List view made users to feel that it didn't have enough data on freelancers and it looked less appealing.
Card View 1st version. Tested with users and test results was user needed more information like "Skills and Work History". So tried 2nd version.
Entire Flow. After user clicks "Post", oDesk generates 5 recommended freelancers that best matches to the job, and then users can choose 5 more recommendation or go to the search page. Another place that user can see the recommended freelancers is on the Jobs page. After user posted and the job doesn't have any applications, then we display a button to show the recommended freelancers.
