The total compensation will be in line with Facebook/Google/Amazon and you'd be doing hands on work from day one and have an immediate impact on the product.

    “Are you excited about writing thousands lines of new code every week?”

    Do you guys care anything about code quality at all?

      “Actually all the senior developers in our team can produce a thousand lines of quality code a week with ease without working overtime. “. For your information, “thousands lines of code” meaning 成千上万, not A thousand.

      OP - let me tell you this. You don’t fucking understand anything about software engineering. A company that measures productivity by lines of code produced is fucking ridiculous.

      (shrug) I love how people like OP react to arguments - instead of focusing on the issue, they divert their topics and say - hey, your company / school / country / race are no better than us!

      So childish.

    Does Alibaba keylog every employees company phone, computer and tablet, restrict emails to external without manager approval and have a culture of addressing US employees as “Ex Microsoft/Amazon Jeff speaking with us”, like Huawei to its US staff does?

    Why is a Chinese company with significant state control and ownership back at home trying to poach so many US employees?

    Why would I work for and empower a company that aligns itself with a country that has a proven track record of human rights abuse, intellectual property theft, espionage, restricting freedom of speech, media, political dissidence, et. ?

    Alibaba interviewed a friend of mine Friday night and Saturday morning. Sorry, I’m Chinese (born and raised) but this shit doesn’t even fly with me. Jack Ma makes enough money to pay for additional headcount. He shouldn’t expect slave labor.

      I have a friend who was challenged whether he studied computer science before? Such a humiliation and disrespect ! He got offers from Facebook snap, Oracle with total pkg of 400k.

      Information that conflicts with your false reality is not fake news. The more you reply the more your inner Authoritarian is shining. Try harder next time you post advertisements for a role.

      @iEmu37, I guess you are that "friend"? Otherwise, how do you know which is the reality? Please fill some details when you spread lies anonymously here next time. At least they tried.

    OP, i don’t think recruiting is your strong suit. Each time you come in here you are super combative and defensive. That kind of manager who just wanna pick a fight is usually the worst kind of manager. You are basically confirming people’s issues with Alibaba the harder you try to defend it. Chill the fuck out and spell check stuff you write.

      Actually, I disagree. I definitely want my manager to fight for his teams. Why would I want my manager to be pushed around?

    Why are we allowing Alibaba to operate here when China doesn’t allow AWS, Google, Facebook etc to operate over there ?

      I guess because you didn't vote for Trump?

      Do you really think it’s bad to allow alibaba to operate here? More positions, more investment from another country to US, more services for companies to choose. Actually it is good for US.

    No one is excited by writing more code with longer hours and lower pay. Everyone here works on something used by millions or billions users

    One thing is that the culture is very Amazonian, including RSU vesting schedule for engineers. A friend went there, worked for a couple of weeks, didn’t like it, and went back to her old job.

    Real question. How about if I were to write say a hundred lines of code each week?

      Are you writing hundreds lines of code now?
      Apr 20, 2018
    • New yhspz
      Yes, I would say about a hundred a week. I feel that is enough. I assure you every single line is worth it's weight in gold. Are we good?

    My boss often asked me to design, and then ask other dev to write the code. How would you measure my KPI in Alibaba?
