If you are willing to relocate to our city. There are also a few extra benefits I would like to mention.

Wuhan is in the middle of China so it’s easy to get to all corners of China from Wuhan. We have very fast and convenient transportation. You can jump onto a train in the morning, drink some coffee and take a nap and wake up in Beijing at noon. Almost all the major cities and tourist spots are connected to railways and trains are very cheap. So you can explore many interesting places in China.

Our company is located in the busiest part of the downtown area, amidst skyscrapers, pedestrian shopping malls, tourist spots, and countless fancy restaurants. Tons of fun things to do. Busy downtown areas in China are very safe - actually the entire city is very safe - even at 2 or 3 o’clock in the morning, since streets are still busy, restaurants and bars are still open, and people are still working. If you get stolen from, which is highly unlikely in Wuhan by the way, the police can locate the thief in 1 hour. You can leave your car unclocked in the garage for a whole day and when you finally come back, nothing will be lost. And you don’t have to carry cash around so nobody would be interested in robbing you. China is extremely safe and people here are extremely friendly.

Near our company are the most famous pedestrian shopping strip in town, a beautiful river with countless fancy restaurants, bars, cinemas, and pubs on both sides, and a big stadiaum where you can watch major events all year round.

Our company is in the process of growing, and I'm very committed to having our early employees share in the growth of the company. According to the advice of some friends who work in VC companies, we have designed our stock structure in a way that makes sure that we can attract both investors and talented employees.
