[Interview 11] Silergy Corp (US, remote)

This is a remote technical writer position in US. I found it through linkedin. The surprising requirement is that they need Mandarin.

I check the company and found it has official branch in Taiwan, but it was started in 2008 in mainland China. It brands itself as the expert of analog IC. The chips are used in charger and medical electronics. 

This reminds me of Phison technical writer (interview 9) . I know they're different, but at least I got a glimpse of what it's like to work in a chip related industry. I just wonder how Silergy can work remotely while the semiconductor companies in Taiwan can not.


Mandarin is required for this role (US, remote)
