Would love to get some pointers on finding work in Taiwan. Read through couple legacy posts on the subject and was wondering if the situation has improved. I have a psychology degree with 5 years of working experience as a software developer. Worked with AWS, GCP, framework, webpack, Centos 7.0+, Symfony, Laravel, Python, PHP, React, HHVM, Laravel, and more. Also have experience in design work (UI and UX), involved in internationalizing a major site to 13 languages, ad revenue improvement, framework design and more.
At the current moment, i’m in Taiwan working overseas for an American company as work/vacation for 2 months. I find it quite enjoyable taking U.S. dollars while staying here. I am bilingual and bicultural. Is considering moving to Taiwan permanently to seek work.
Got couple questions.
- Are the atmosphere in Taiwan still consider education as foremost importance? How serious is the issue if there are any?
- I understand that I would not get a cushy six figure salary (US dollars), but what are the expected pay? 50k to 70k per month (TWD)?
- What are the experience like working in Taiwan? Are they still as bad as they use to be?
- Would it be better to just teach English? Would that result in higher pay?
Any stories to share would be truly appreciated. Thank you all!!!
