Elijah has always set his sights high, aspiring to one day leave our Earth’s atmosphere as an astronaut. He almost got there, too – his first job was a paid internship at NASA. These ambitions may just be linked to his desire to be just like his father, the “rocket scientist”, but we’re glad Elijah eventually landed at Devbridge as a Senior Product Manager.

You may also find Elijah shopping on Amazon, eating Hot Pot-style food, or watching Trading Places – it’s a Chang family Christmas tradition, after all.
