Meet Lucas Huang, Software Engineer, San Francisco

September 12, 2018

What has your most excited about joining the Zenefits team?

I truly believe in Zenefits’ mission of making the world of work better, easier and more accessible for small business owners and entrepreneurs. I believe in making this mission come alive through working on the Zenefits iOS platform.

Tell us something that you’re excited to accomplish at ZenNation

The main things that I would love the focus on at Zenefits are:

  • Take our iOS applications to the next level in App Store, perhaps a top-10 HR app?
  • Open source one of our iOS components to the community
  • Attend and complete one or more volunteer events with ZenNation!

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received? Who gave you that advice?

As an engineer, it is not enough to build something. More importantly, it is how you as an engineer bring impacts to the people. He was the CTO at Tokbox.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?

If I could have one superpower, it would be the power of making people laugh. It can cure mental health issues, and bring happiness to many. 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

I love eating out with friends, watching shows at home (anything from YouTube, Chinese reality shows, American TV shows, Game of Thrones, Westworld, etc), traveling or playing billiards. 

What does a perfect Saturday look like to you?

My perfect Saturday would involve a very detailed plan rather than spending too much time sleeping in.  I’d start the day off by getting up early, finding an area to explore and having a delicious meal with family and friends–ideally dim sum. It would also involve grabbing a nice Hong-Kong style green milk tea and doing some shopping. Towards the evening, I would like to watch a popular movie with friends before heading home.
