I've been tasked with opening a software development center to develop what will be the International Version of our software; we are one of the leading Point of Sale companies in PR China.
Our solution is the physical device, which is android based, as well as an extensive cloud based solution which not only handles the banking transactions, but provides the customers with extensive back-end transaction datamining.
We're 4 years old, are a leading domestic provider, Series B . . . but will need to radically change our management style in order to compete internationally; what works in China is not super transferable internationally. We will fork the code base to have two versions (domestic & international)
SO WHERE WOULD YOU GO? We will need to have some very experienced developers that are fluent in Mandarin . . . with the majority of the developers needing to speak ENG (in order to discuss collaborative projects with banks,customers, investors from N. America & Europe).
