Chang worked in Silicon Valley for several years before moving back east to look for new opportunities. He wanted to find a startup with a solid business model and a strong Executive Team. From personal experience, Chang was well aware of corporate travel and its financial inefficiencies, so Rocketrip’s business model really resonated with him.
On a typical day, Chang collaborates with designers, developers, and behavioral economists to improve and add new features to the company’s digital platform. Because his work is project-based, Chang’s daily schedule can vary. He may work on improving a traveler’s experience of the Rocketrip app or focus on eliciting insights from the company’s analytics platform.
“We’ve shifted our focus from smaller businesses to larger enterprises, and with that change come a lot of interesting challenges. There have been several initiatives surrounding the scalability of our platform that have been very fascinating for me to work on.”
“I think we haven’t even scratched the surface of what we could do as a company. Especially from a product perspective, there are lots of potential ways for us to optimize behavior during business travel.”
