This week’s Zapponian Spotlight is on Jia, a transplant from New York by way of China. Jia, one of our talented software engineers from Zappos IP, Inc., is quite the ubiquitous character here at Zappos HQ. You’ll often find him at different Zappos events all over town, almost always with camera in tow.
In this year’s Corporate Challenge, Jia participated in a whopping 12 events! He’s a physical fitness enthusiast who practices tai chi at a local park almost daily. He even challenged himself to run up the Stratosphere tower here in Las Vegas, and he did so in less than 14 minutes! That’s 108 stories, 1,455 stairs and 854 feet! Quite impressive!
