      Because Ali is fast growing, google is moving much more slowly, also there is no career growth

    Chinese is not a must. Although it’s true that majority of the documentation/group chats are in Chinese.

    Google translator will be your best friend here. It works really good for ch -> en translation.

    The company is growing super fast, but working on the Bay Area will be a problem since all the action happens in hangzhou (cn) and the time difference sucks.

    Salaries must be on the range of any big tech company on the Bay Area.
