Why here? I chatted with the HR director of this company and it seems amazing! Western run with 10 foreign employees, the pay is great and the office culture is awesome.

“The company’s physical environment is pretty decent. We are located in the center area of Shanghai (Xujiahui, right next to French Concession) and we own an entire floor in a very modern office building. Our culture is also quite cool. We are all in our mid-20’s and there’s almost no bureaucracy. It’s a very fast-growing education startup and we are basically renewing ourselves every year. We encourage our people to try new ideas and break conventions.”
