we are looking for an active, assertive, native chinese speaking project & management assistant (M/F).
You would help the current office manager/COO (F) and foreign CEO (M) with various office and project tasks.
You are able to perform project assistant tasks individually ; you will make lists with the lead developer and lead designer, check work of the programmers and designers, report back to the COO/CEO, help the COO with performing small administrative (financial) tasks, occasionally have to bring or fetch documents from various government-departments in the city (from Hi-Tech zone to city-centre). When we have an exhibition you might represent our company at a small stand (might be a few times per year).
You are cheerful, energetic, happy, easy-going, can work independent, will ask for more work instead of waiting for requests, can work with chinese and foreigners (CEO and the Canadian investors).
You are a representative person (open to people) but can be punctual and work accurate.
The company is a small (10 people) foreign invested IT company located near Hong Pai Lou next to the 2nd ringroad in a new (1 year old) building and a lot of natural light (15th floor) with a view over the city.
We create english learning software (apps) for smartphones and tablets for children in China, USA and Spanish speaking countries.
Our company tries to avoid overtime, so we have normal working times from 08:30 until no later than 18:00. Severe overtime are exceptions.
1-2 years in a similar position (need to prove this)
Required: Familiar with Microsoft Word/Excel/Powerpoint.
- Experience with (online) project-management software or at least willing to quickly learn how
- Interested in education for children using online apps
- Experience with game-development
- comfortable with English
1. Native chinese (for dealing with goverment-bureaus and our native chinese employees)
2. Decent English (reading/writing/speaking and listening) for discussing tasks with the CEO ; we won't ask for scores ; you have to speak practical English. You also do not have to translate texts but might have to help with simple conversations/work meetings
Salary: a fair salary (including house funding, social security) depending your experience (think about what you think is reasonable when you apply)
We will provide: A nice comfortable and easy-going work-environment. A chance to learn more about app/game-development. Many opportunities to use your English without a lot of pressure.
Contact: Miss Li ; email@example.com for an appointment, use subject [PMA1] in your mail.
We are not a school ; we are developing software. To be exact ; an English learning application for children (roughly between 4 and 8 years old).
This app (will be available Android and iOS later) is not finished yet and we are looking for your input.
We hope to find around 6 enthousiastic teachers that can help us to improve this application by coming to our office at a time convenient for you all, perhaps in the morning, afternoon or an evening.
Our office is at the 2nd ringroad near Hong Pai Lou, next to a bus-stop of the BRT (K1/K2-bus).
We would pay any transportation costs (gas, taxi or bus) and while reviewing the app here at the office you'd receive 150 RMB cash per hour. Upfront.
The company is Canadian based and management is foreign (including me). Feel free to respond to this nick (WoogiEnglish) or call us at 028-8703-7376 (from 0900 to around 1800 on weekdays) or email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Perhaps the tap-water is drinkable but it's better to be safe so I boil all tap-water before drinking or just drink bottled water. That has been going well for the past 4 years. The occasional stomach issues are often due to (slight) food poisioning or simply too spicy food (sichuan peppers having a party in your belly).
The Spot makes good burgers, but I found the quality is varying. The first time, I think somewhere in winter 2013 I found the biggest burger to be very big with a lot of extras. In spring 2014 I had the feeling the size was reduced, it didn't feel that 'big' but the price was the same or higher (can't recall).
Yet if you want a burger then it's a good place to sit. If you come early you might enjoy the happy hour as well which means 2 beers for the price of one and that's always nice.
I had a chance to taste their panini, pizza (parma), merengue and 2 belgian beers.
The pizza is highly recommended. Good taste, structure, very decent prosciutto and not just 3 small pieces.
I found the sandwich/panini (ham * cheese) spicy and tasty but perhaps it could be baked just a minute longer to make the dough a bit more "crunchy". However it will taste better than 99% of the paninis you can find elsewhere in Chengdu.
The special belgian 'cherry' beer (in a red wrapper) was not cheap (75 RMB) but a great drink ; I didn't find that anywhere else in Chengdu in a (normal) restaurant.
The interior is nice, relaxed, a good place to hang out with some friends and have a good evening unlike many chinese restaurants where you basically want to leave after you finished your last sip or bite.
Good food but pricy. The beef from their wood-fired ovens is great, nicely marinated, always perfectly cooked but you pay for it.
They rebuild the restaurant about half a year ago and you can't sit next to the kitchen anymore where cooks would prepare the dishes right in front of you (behind a glass wall) and you could see the juicy steaks going in the wood-fired oven.
Their sashimi was average. Small portions, above average price. Not worth it ; I'd recommend to get a good piece of salmon yourself at the seafood market(s) and slice and eat that at home yourself...
Ah I just wrote a long review, only to find a small mistake, posted a correction, to learn that it overwrite my long beautiful review.
So here we go again:
Pizzas and sandwiches are good. Simple. Good. Nobody can complain about that.
The service is good. I heard Mike use a raised voice to pass requests to the kitchen behind him, which is noise due to the fans and music, and that's it. No soap-opera events like you might have read below. Don't let this abstain you from visiting this small but quality place.
The sandwich was big, fresh baked bread, filled with a LOT of ingredients that all tasted good and in place.
The pizza is good as well, hot, fresh, good ingredients. Both the thin crust and the stuffed one. I prefer the stuffed one but that one can be pretty big so unless you are a big eater ; have a friend to join you.
I like this honest place and won't ask for a fa piao ; I'll do that at places that have owners sitting in the back smoking while the staff is working their ass for a low pay. Mike is (still) making YOUR pizzas himself which is pretty nice considering how 'bosses' normally operate in China.
The (import) belgian beer tastes good and is another reason for me to go there. They don't deliver to my place so I have to come in person and I sometimes found the place filled with people, having to resort to another restaurant to satisfy my culinary needs. So if you want to go there ; be on time. In the weekends better be there before 18:00 if you want to have a seat. With 2 people it's easier, with 4 it can be a hassle. You are warned ! If you're really smart you can call them and ask how many peeps are inside and then quickly jump in a taxi :)
If you like Pizza in general and aren't a picky customer then Mike's place is highly recommended.
If you like (China's) Pizza Hut's pizza then stay away ; Mike's pizzas will be out of your league.
