Chinese search engine seeks to hire U.S. software engineers

Baidu, China's leading search engine, is looking to hire software engineers. So it's turned to the U.S.

The search engine is seeking to hire 30 mid-to senior-level software engineers from a job fair in the Silicon Valley on July 10. That move would be the company's first direct hiring from the United States.

From Reuters:

"Baidu believes that talent is the key to our success as a company, and we go where ever the best talent can be found, whether here in China or in Silicon Valley," Zheng Bin, Baidu's human resources director said in a statement to Reuters.

"As we develop more and more advanced search technologies, our need for world-class talent will only continue to increase."
