The Udacity A/B testing course is the best introductory resource out there imo.

anyone have any resources they could share on A/B testing case study questions? or A/B testing from the perspective of designing and and implementing the actual experiment rather than purely the stats aspects of it? my current plan is to go through parts of this A/B testing course on udacity.

There is a free course on A/B testing on udacity : https://www.udacity.com/course/ab-testing--ud257
I would recommend getting familiar with the tools used in the project and google the methods used in quant research when you need to apply them.

I haven't actually done them yet but planning to do the following courses
Statistics fundamentals: https://www.udacity.com/course/intro-to-descriptive-statistics--ud827 https://www.udacity.com/course/intro-to-inferential-statistics--ud201
UX experiments; https://www.udacity.com/course/ab-testing--ud257
All are free and pretty well structured. I feel like you should start with free courses then do the paid ones if you still feel the need.
By the way, I'd be interested if anyone knows of any quantitative usability testing courses.

As an compromise you can try to take this series of courses (https://www.edx.org/micromasters/mitx-statistics-and-data-science) I'm currently taking the mathematical statistics course and enjoying it.
I see a lot of Masters/PhDs from other disciplines do well as data scientists at my company - they mostly self learn and the area for these PhDs are usually in business/product strategy.
I would strongly recommend getting good at SQL - this is the bread a butter (you wrangle and aggregate data in SQL before pulling into R/python) and experimental design (A/B testing).
