I've just completed my first week at Xiaomi here in Beijing and it's been a pretty intense journey so far.
The Chinese tech ecosystem moves at breakneck speed. I've never seen such fierce competition and such impassioned desire to build things fast. There's a pervasive entrepreneurial spirit in companies both small and big.
Xiaomi is every bit as fascinating and Google-like as I expected. The engineering floor is always busy with people building well into the night. The teams are small and scrappy, and speed (in both UX and execution) is always a top priority. Everyone at Xiaomi — engineers, PMs, designers and marketeers — is insanely focused on users and "doing the right thing". We have a special term for our users — we call them "Mi fans", and "Mi fans" always come first.
Social media is huge in China — bigger than anything I've seen in the west. Sina Weibo, the most popular micro-blogging platform in China, has over 500M registered users and over 50M DAUs. In less than a month and after only 9 public posts, my Weibo account had over 80,000 followers (http://goo.gl/UzbvNF). I even have a public nickname crowd-sourced via social media by our CEO, Lei Jun. The nickname is 虎哥 (pronounced "Hǔ gē") and literally means "tiger brother"
I'm really looking forward to my next few weeks and months here at Xiaomi. I'll try to share as much as I can about this new experience (while keeping up with the crazy pace on this side of the world).
