That are some pretty heavy requirements… I recommend you to make use of stepstone or similar portals. I doubt someone that qualified is here in the forum.
You should also consider engaging a headhunter

And don’t forget about LinkedIn.com :partying_face:

If the economist is to be believed, it should be easier to find tech staff in China currently.\

I’d only apply for Master Chief Scientific Officer.

I like the PhD required part. Although finding such a highly specialized individual from any PhD I’ve ever known, oblivious to the big picture :thinking:. I guess that’s why they get paid the big bucks. They’re basically super human. Like that young lad running the google vr branch.

They should hire doc_ok.

I’d also recommend this genius: https://www.kguttag.com/

He may be too busy to work with pimax, I don’t know, but he’s one of the best in the field. He may know of someone who can help.
